Design and Display
Starting with the design of the phone, iQOO 3 has a glass sandwich design, both the front and back being a Gorilla Glass 6 with an aluminum frame in the middle. The device features a 6.44 inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, the aspect ratio of 20:9 and pixel count of 409 PPI.
The screen-to-body ratio comes to around 84.3%. The screen used in the phone is named “Polar View Display” by the company and can reach a peak brightness of 1200nits and supports HDR10+ content playback. The display supports the 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch-sensing to reduce input lag. The display has a punch-hole cutout on the top right side to house a 16 MP, f/2.0 selfie camera and an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Talking about cameras iQOO 3 sports a quad-camera setup, the primary sensor being a 48 MP with f/1.8 Sony IMX582 wide-angle camera accompanied by 13MP f/2.46 telephoto shooter, 13 MP f/2.2 ultrawide, and a 2 MP, f/2.4 depth sensor. The cameras of the phone will support HDR, panorama and will be able to record videos of 2160p@30/60fps as well as 1080p@30fps.
Performance, Software, and Battery
Powering the phone is a Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 chipset which is an octa-core processor bundled with 6/8/12GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage. Handling the graphics of the phone is the Adreno 650 GPU. The phone sports an impressive 4,400 mAh battery supporting 55W fast charging via USB Type-C. Thanks to this fast charging half of the battery capacity can be charged in just 15 minutes. The device runs on Android 10.0 with iQOO UI 1.0 on top. iQOO went with its own OS instead of relying on its parent companies Funtouch OS.
The iQOO UI 1.0 has a lot of software tweaks for all the gamers out there. The UI features Ultra Game Mode that lets you block notifications and calls when gaming to minimize distractions. The device also sports two shoulder keys which are dubbed as “Monster Touch buttons” by the brand. There is also a 4D game vibration feature to simulate recoil when shooting a gun while gaming. Holding both the Monster Touch button activates the Monster Mode enabling the processor to run at 100% capacity to reduce lag during gaming. The device also comes with Carbon Fiber VC Liquid Cooling technology capable of reducing CPU temperature by 12 degrees.
One other key feature of the phone is that it is 5G enabled out of the box. There is no 5G network in India right now but having the 5G connectivity makes it future proof. The additional features of the phone include Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm audio jack and all the necessary sensors like accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass.
