Announcement. Vivo iQOO U3 5G for China (not to be confused with Vivo U3)

Vivo iQOO U3 5G smartphone announced in China. (Not to be confused with last year's Vivo U3 - one without 5G and generally different).

According to its characteristics, the iQOO U3 is a typical modern strong midrange. Everything with him and the price is more than humane.

Chipset MediaTek Dimensity 800U - fresh, 7 nm process technology, powerful - more than three hundred thousand AnTuTu points. A cool water cooling system is promised.

There is a lot of memory. 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. Apparently, there is no support for memory cards.

Screen with an increased refresh rate of 90 Hz. The rest is a typical modern IPS-matrix. Large, 6.58 ″. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2408 (401 ppi).

Nice capacious 5000 mAh battery. Fast charging 18W supported.

There are not too many cameras by modern standards. Single front camera for 8 MP. The rear camera is double. 48MP main module plus an auxiliary depth sensor.

Apparently, there is no NFC module. At least it is not mentioned in the official description. Wi-Fi dual band, USB correct (Type-C), fingerprint reader located on the side.

And about money. ¥ 1,498 (₽16,700, $ 229) for the lower version 6 + 128 GB, ¥ 1,698 (₽19,000, $ 260) for the older version 8 + 128 GB.

Most likely soon Vivo iQOO U3will appear on AliExpress. But even if the price is as humane as in China, and even if you are not afraid of the lack of NFC, this device is not the best choice for you and me. Because it does not have the 7 and 20 LTE bands so dearly beloved by us.

Varieties:

6 GB + 128 GB - ¥ 1498 (₽16,700, $ 229)
8 GB + 128 GB - ¥ 1,698 (₽19,000, $ 260)
