Earlier this week, iQOO announced the iQOO Neo5 flagship phone in China. Soon after its launch, the company released the first teaser of its upcoming Z-series smartphone, which is speculated to launch as the iQOO Z3. A fresh leak suggests that China may soon receive a 5G-ready iQOO phone with entry-level specs. This may debut in the home market as the iQOO U3x.
A reliable tipster from China claimed that the upcoming entry-level iQOO phone is likely to cost around 1,000 Yuan (~$154). At this price, it is expected to offer users major specs like a 90Hz refresh rate screen, Snapdragon 480 chipset, a 5,000mAh battery, and a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual-camera system. These specifications suggest that it could be a rebadged version o the Vivo Y31s 5G, which launched in January in China.
In December 2020, iQOO announces the iQOO U3 smartphone in the home market. It was a rebranded version of the Vivo Y52s 5G. Hence, it is highly likely that the iQOO U3x could also be a rebranded device. It is unclear whether the iQOO Z3 and the iQOO U3x will go official together by the end of March
The Vivo Y31s 5G is equipped with a 6.58-inch LCD panel that delivers a Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. It is powered by the Snapdragon 480 chipset, 4 GB / 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. For security, it has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It has a selfie camera of 8-megapixel and its rear camera setup has a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has 18W rapid charging support for its 5,000mAh battery.
