“The alleged image reveals the upcoming iQOO 3 smartphone with a flat display and single punch-hole at the top right corner”
iQOO 3 has been rumoured to be the first smartphone from Vivo’s spin-off brand iQOO in India. The handset could be the one powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC that the company is slated to launch this month. Rumours are rife that the iQOO 3 will debut with a punch-hole display, which has now been confirmed via the alleged leaked images. As seen from the image, the iQOO 3 will ship with a flat display and a single punch-hole at the top right corner for the selfie camera.
The leaked image was shared by ‘Digital Chat Station’ on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo. It shows the iQOO 3 placed alongside the recently launched OPPO Reno 3 smartphone, which has a curved display and a punch-hole at the left corner. The iQOO handset in comparison with the OPPO has a flat panel. Additionally, the image also reveals the iQOO 3 with a round fingerprint icon in the lower half of the screen, indicating that the phone may feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.

He also confirmed that iQOO will be the first brand to launch a Snapdragon 865 and 5G phone in India. This leads us to believe the iQOO 3 will be launching in India this month.
