Vivo has launched the iQOO Z3, a new budget 5G Android phone focused on mobile gaming. The phone has been launched in China but it is currently unknown if the company has any plans to launch it in other markets as well.
The all-new phone Vivo iQOO Z3 is powered by Snapdragon 768G processor and has a 120Hz display. It has a triple camera setup at the back and there is a teardrop-style notch on the display to carry the selfie camera.
The iQOO Z3 also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and the phone supports aptX HD and LDAC too. The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Being mobile gaming-focused, the phone includes some special features. The chipset is connected to a graphite heat sink that transfers the heat into the air. Vivo claims that the system drops the chipset temperature by 10-degrees in case of extensive usage. There is a “4D” haptic feedback system as well for a more immersive experience.
