After launching the iQOO 7 series in India with flagship chipsets including the Snapdragon 870 and the Snapdragon 888, it looks like the brand is gearing up to launch the new iQOO Z3 in India as a mid-ranger smartphone.
The iQOO Z3 has now been registered on the Indian IMEI database with the model number V2073A which further hints towards an imminent iQOO Z3 launch in India. During the last month, the iQOO Z3 also bagged the BIS certification with the model number I2011.
The smartphone was launched back in March in China with a 120Hz display, Snapdragon 768G chip, 55W fast charging, and a 64MP primary camera. It was priced at 1699 yuan (Rs 18,805 approx.) for 6GB + 128GB base variant and 1999 yuan (Rs 22,130 approx.) for the top variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage.
The iQOO Z3 can compete with the likes of Xiaomi, Realme and Samsung assuming it will be priced within the same range as it was priced in China.
