iQOO Z3 5G India launch is imminent. The company is yet to make an official announcement on the launch of its upcoming mid-range smartphone in India. However, Moneycontrol has learnt from sources that iQOO Z3 will launch in India very soon. It will also be the first smartphone in India to launch with the Snapdragon 768G 5G processor.

Our sources informed us that the iQOO Z3 India launch date is yet to be finalised. However, the company plans to launch its upcoming smartphone in India between June 10 and June 15. Previously, tipster Mukul Sharma, aka Stufflistings, had claimed that iQOO will launch its first Z-series smartphone in India by mid-June. Moneycontrol’s sources confirmed that the phone is indeed coming to India under the iQOO Z3 5G branding.

iQOO Z3 5G will be the first smartphone in India to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G SoC. The 5G processor was launched earlier this year as a successor to the Snapdragon 765G found on the likes of the Vivo X50 Pro (Review), OnePlus Nord (Review).

Our sources also shared a few more details of the iQOO Z3 5G price in India. The company’s upcoming Z-series smartphone will launch at around Rs 25,000, sitting below the recently-launched iQOO 7.

The other specifications of the device are likely to remain the same as the variant launched in China earlier this year. The Chinese variant comes with a 6.58-inch FHD+ LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a triple-camera setup on the back with a 64MP primary camera. The camera module also includes an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro sensor. The camera setup is similar to the recently-launched Vivo V21 5G. 

The company is yet to make an official announcement on the iQOO Z3 5G launch date in India. We can expect a formal announcement within a week’s time.
