Vivo has refreshed its smartphone business with the arrival of the iQOO smartphone lineup. iQOO serves as a gaming or hardware-centric smartphone lineup. Also, devices coming under iQOO branding are more cost-effective than those coming under the Vivo moniker. The company already released a bunch of iQOO smartphones under competitive pricing segments with cutting-edge hardware. The company has a strong presence in China and is building a solid one in India. Now, the company is gearing up to bring the iQOO Z lineup in a bid to increase its popularity in the Asian market. According to the popular tipster Mukul Sharma, the first device reaching India will be the iQOO Z3 5G.
The iQOO Z3 5G is coming to India as an Amazon exclusive
According to the tipster, the iQOO Z3 5G will be the first smartphone coming to the market. Apparently, the device will hit the Indian market between June 10th and June 15th. Moreover, the tipster states that the first device in the Z series will be an Amazon exclusive. This is interesting since we can easily spot strong competition between e-commerce giants Amazon and Flipkart in India.
