Despite the recent increase in smartphone prices in India, Vivo is doing a wonderful promo for the iQOO 3. If you recall, the iQOO 3 was released earlier this year as a gaming phone for the Indian market. However, the device wasn’t really on par with the current trends featuring a standard 60Hz display. Despite this, it’s a solid flagship smartphone with Snapdragon 865. Now, it’s even more sweetie due to the discounted price of INR 31,990 which is around $423. For that amount, users can get the base variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB. For a limited time, this is the cheapest Snapdragon 865-powered smartphone.
Unfortunately, there are some limitations in this promo price. To get the most reduced price on Flipkart, users will need to use an ICICI Bank Credit Card, Credit Card EMI, or Debit Card EMI for the transaction. Interestingly enough, the promo covers the entire iQOO 3 lineup, both the 4G and 5G variants. You can see the prices below.
