iQOO 3 is on sale for only ₹24,990 ($340) in India


Last year, iQOO entered India with a single smartphone called iQOO 3. Despite being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, the handset was announced in both 4G and 5G versions. It has been a year since this device’s debut in the country but the brand has not announced any other model so far. However, it has dropped the price of the iQOO 3 several times. In fact, the phone now starts at only ₹24,990 ($340).

For those unaware, iQOO is an independent brand, which was formerly a series of performance-focused smartphones by vivo. Hence, just like POCO and Xiaomi, vivo shares its resources with iQOO.

The brand entered India without any ties with vivo India, which has been operating in the country for years. Hence, iQOO India being a new player could not market its device well enough on its own.

Additionally, the phone is plagued by poor software, as per critics and users. Also, though it was part of the Android 11 Beta program, it is yet to receive the stable update.


Further, as most of the smartphone sales in India happen under the $250 segment, it was hard for a newcomer like iQOO to sell a $500+ handset. As a result, it had to cut down the price many times.

Hence, the device is currently selling for the below-listed prices on its official online retail partner Flipkart.
