Vivo iQOO 3 5G smartphone recently passed through TENAA certification. We were waiting for the official statement to get a confirmation from the company. In case you didn’t know, iQOO is a sub-brand from Vivo, which is going to show some rivalry in the sub-brand market alongside Poco and Realme.
Vivo iQOO To Step Into Indian Market
It looks like Vivo is all set to introduce its sub-brand, finally into the Indian market. We were wondering when the launch was supposed to happen. We didn’t know much about the Vivo iQOO 3 smartphone, but we do have some confirmation now. There were no traces of the iQOO till yesterday, but it seems like iQOO has created their official accounts, finally on social media.

Along with the tweet, they also created a YouTube channel along with the Twitter handle. There’s a video that shows the logo animations and the tagline of the company. The description of the video also mentions that iQOO is a new mobile phone brand that focuses purely on gaming.
As per the previous leaks, Vivo iQOO is set to launch its iQOO 3 in India soon with 5G support and will be primarily focused on gaming entirely. The pricing and availability of the smartphone are yet to be known. It’s more likely to be in February or March. At the same time, we are expecting to see a budget gaming phone for all the gamers out there. Since it features a 4,250 mAh battery and 44W fast charging support, it makes a point of being a gaming phone to be valid.
As of now, this is all we know about the Vivo IQOO 3 smartphone. We are sure to get more intel on the same in the coming days. This year, many smartphones are expecting to arrive with punch-hole displays. The original iQOO smartphone had a waterdrop notch. The company may get rid of the Notch to the iQOO 3 with a punch-hole screen.
Other smartphone manufacturers in China are also gearing up to launch their gaming smartphones. Xiaomi has already started teasing the Black Shark 3, and Nubia has also confirmed that it will soon be launching the next Red Magic gaming smartphone. Since these phones are coming, Vivo could likely also be working on the launch of its next iQOO gaming phone.
Give it or take it, but we are for sure excited about the iQOO gaming phone. Let us know if you’re excited as well.
