Putting The Roid in Android
There’s been news of the IQOO 3 5G going round the internet for a while now but new leaks consisting of the device specs along with it’s AnTuTu benchmark score give us a detailed look at just how powerful the device will be and spoiler alert, it’s looking like a beast.
These new renders of the device along with its key specs give us some interesting insight. The photo, which looks like it was taken at the launch rehearsal, reveal that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The phone will also come equipped with 55W Super Flash Charge support to power up its 4400mAh battery, Hi-Res Audio and a HiFi AK4377A PA amplifier.
The image also reveals that the device will come with “Ergonomic Monster Touch Buttons”, whatever that means, along with an Ultra Game Mode with features such as 180Hz Touch Response Rate, 4D Game Vibration, and what Vivo calls Eagle Eye Display Enhancement.
When it comes to the IQOO 3 5G’s screen, it’s a super AMOLED display that almost like it doesn’t have a front facing camera. In what Vivo calls its “Polar View Display”, the punch hole style front facing camera is barely even noticeable.
At the back, the device sports a 48MP quad camera setup, with official posters revealing that it has a 50mm portrait lens. The specs of the other three cameras and that of the front-facing camera are yet to be determined.
The most eye catching aspect about the device however, is it’s colorways. The phone is set to come in 3 colourways; Volcano Orange, Tornado Black, and Quantum Silver. It’s the orange that’s really catching our attention as leaked renders show that it features black speckles all over, and we’re really digging that.
A couple of days ago, the device AnTuTu score was leaked, and it suggests that the iQOO 3 5G could be the most powerful phone we’ve seen yet. The device achieved a staggering 597,583 points, making it the highest ever score to be registered on AnTuTu to date. That achievement could very well be thanks to it’s top of the line Snapdragon 865 chipset, but still.
No news on whether the IQOO 3 5G will make it to the Malaysian market, but it’s a long shot for now. The phone is set to release in China on February 25th.
