The device will also become the first from the Chinese sub-brand to feature the Snapdragon 768G according to rumors and speculations.
The powerful mid-range chipset is expected to offer an enhanced gaming experience on the device however, not so much is known about the device just yet.

But it might be safe to assume that the specifications of the device will be based on its Chinese variant which was announced much earlier back in March 2021.
The brand released a poster of the device for its Indian market hinting the release date to being June 8th at 12PM.
iQOO Z3 5G specifications
Maybe I should label this as “expected specs” but nothing big considering the fact that the device will be a mid-ranger.
We might get a 6.58-inch display made with IPS LCD panel and a teardrop notch as well as a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate which will actually be the most amazing thing about the device.
The China variant of the device has the Snapdragon 768G chipset and has a number of storage options such as: 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage.
As for the camera department, it comes with a 16MP front-facing camera with a 64MP primary sensor at the back. Then there are secondary sensors such as the 8MP ultrawide sensor and a 2MP macro camera making it a triple setup at the back of the device.
Powering the device up is a massive 4,400mAg battery with a 55W blazing-fast charging support while it’s fingerprint scanner is side-mounted because IPS displays aren’t transparent enough to support under-display fingerprint sensors seen in most high-end premium flagships.
Speculated price tag of the device could sit between US$300 to US$350 (about IN₹ 25,000) according to reports.
But until June 8th which is just a week away, we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed but the device will definitely be a cool smartphone with some interesting perks and features.
