Speaking of the specifications, the iQOO 3 5G will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which will be paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB UFS 3.1 onboard storage. The device will flaunt a 6.44-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. It will be among the 5G-capable smartphones in India.

In the camera department, both the 4G and 5G variants of iQOO 3 will sport an array of four cameras at the back; the 5G variant could likely be headlined by a 48MP sensor. The front camera of the device is being speculated to be a 16-megapixel selfie snapper and the same will find itself sitting underneath a punch-hole.

The iQOO 3 5G smartphone was spotted on the AnTuTu benchmarking website a little while ago, where it has topped the charts by a considerable margin. The device has even beaten the previous best AnTuTu score, that of the Realme X50 Pro 5G smartphone. Incidentally, the Realme X50 Pro 5G launch is slated for February 24th, which will give it the title of the first-ever 5G smartphone in India.
