A new mid-range smartphone was announced today, and it is none other than the Vivo iQOO U3. The new phone was listed at JD.com revealing all its specifications, key features, renders, price, and even release date. You can get all this information right in this article.
Vivo iQOO U3 Key Features
The Vivo iQOO U3 is powered by a Dimensity 800U chipset, paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM. It comes with 128GB of built-in storage. The phone also features a liquid cooling system that should keep the internal frosty even under prolonged stress.
The 6.58-inch LCD of the Vivo iQOO U3 has a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. The phone has a waterdrop notch at the top which accommodates the 20MP selfie camera. The fingerprint scanner is found on the side embedded in the power key.
The camera design on the back looks exactly like that on the Vivo X50 series and the Vivo V20 lineup, but in reality, it has a 48MP main shooter coupled with an auxiliary 2MP secondary camera for the depth sensor.
The battery of the Vivo iQOO U3 is quite impressive – a 5000mAh capacity cell with 18W fast charging and a USB-C port.
