iQOO Z3 5G expected price in India
I am guessing if you have made it so far, you have watched the above video. If not, then let me tell you that Gagan Arora the director of iQOO India said that the smartphone is going to cost under ₹25000 in India. Now, that has to be for the 8GB variant. There could also be a 6GB variant which could cost around ₹22000.
The iQOO India director also mentioned that the smartphone will launch on Amazon India with great bank offers to make the deal irresistible.
Based on the expected pricing and specifications, I am very excited about the iQOO Z3 5G smartphone. I like when brands make technology more accessible at less price. The company promises 2 years of major Android updates along with a great after-sales service. What interests, me more is that the company is promising 2 years of major Android updates. It is worth noting that select Vivo service centers will serve for the after-sales service in India for the brand. However, the company is looking to build a strong network across the country once the situation improves. While we wait for the iQOO Z3 5G, you might want to check out other offerings from the brand the iQOO 7 and the iQOO 7 Legend.
