On June 8th, Chinese manufacturer iQoo released the company’s new iQoo Z3 gaming-centric smartphone in India. This device marks the organization’s official entry into the Indian smartphone gaming market.
The iQoo Z3 was launched globally back in March. The device comes in three variations: the base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the model with the 8GB + 128GB of storage, and the top-of-the-line variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
“The iQoo Z3 is a toned-down version of the iQoo 3, which was a premium gaming-centric smartphone. A lot of high-end budget smartphones offer 5G support today, but the iQoo Z3 is one of the few smartphones in this segment to also offer a 120Hz refresh rate display and 55W charging. It is also currently the only one to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G processor,” writes Sheldon Pinto of Gadgets 360. “With that said, it will compete with smartphones such as the upcoming OnePlus Nord CE, the Xiaomi Mi 10i, and the Realme X7 5G.”
The iQoo Z3 has a starting price of roughly $260. The high-end model of the phone can cost up to $309.
