After the launch of iQOO 7 Series, iQOO is gearing up to launch a new mid-range smartphone in the country, the iQOO Z3 5G. The device had already appeared on the BIS certification site hinting towards an imminent launch.
Now in the latest development, the smartphone has been listed on the Indian IMEI database pointing towards a possibility that the company is prepping for the launch.
The iQOO Z3 5G is expected to be one of the most affordable handsets from the brand and it will take on Realme and Xiaomi’s best phones under Rs 20,000 mark.
According to the listing, the iQOO Z3 has appeared on the Indian IMEI database with model number V2073A. Besides, the listing didn’t reveal anything about the specifications or features of the upcoming smartphone. Considering the IMEI listing we can safely assume that the handset might launch in the country soon.
