iQOO has officially announced a new 5G mid-ranger smartphone in the Chinese market known as the iQOO U3. Although this device was marketed under the iQOO branding, but its essentially a rebadged model of the recently announced Vivo Y52s.

At the helm, the iQOO U3 is be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage in the memory department.
Keeping its lights on will be a huge 5,000mAh battery that comes with 18W fast-charging support. Other than that, its also worth noting that the device will also be featuring a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
