iQOO 3 5G official product video shows off 48MP Quad rear camera setup and gaming buttons
iQOO, a brand under China’s BBK Electronics Corporation, has been present in China since last year and recently announced its entry into the Indian smartphone market. iQOO is all set to launch the iQOO 3 – its first device for India on February 25th. The iQOO 3 will be a high-end gaming smartphone powered by Snapdragon 865 and will have features like UFS 3.1, 55W fast charging, and 5G connectivity. Through a series of official teasers, the company has confirmed some of the iQOO 3’s other features including a 48MP rear camera, pressure-sensitive gaming triggers, and the different color options.
Earlier today, iQOO shared a teaser video on Weibo, giving us the first official look of the smartphone; the same was shared on Twitter later on in the day. As seen in the video, the iQOO 3 comes with what is potentially a glass sandwich design with four cameras on the back in an L-shaped configuration. Although the purpose of each of the cameras has not been defined, the primary camera has been confirmed to be a 48MP sensor – we’ll learn whether it’s Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1/GM2 or Sony IMX586 by the 25th of this month.

The teaser also reveals three different colors for the back panel. The exhibited options include a black option with a light gradient, an orange variant with black spots, and a third, bluish-white one. Each of these color variants also has a disctinctive design. At the same time, iQOO’s teaser video also confirms a single hole punch camera for selfies.

Meanwhile, iQOO India also teased that the phone features two press-sensitive shoulder triggers along the frame on each side. Users should be able to assign actions for the Left and the Right buttons per game. With all the branding that draws a great deal of inspiration from racing cars, the iQOO 3 is ready to take on other gaming-centric stalwarts like the ASUS ROG Phone II with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. iQOO has also announced that the display will have a touch response rate of 180Hz. However, there’s no mention of the display’s refresh rate.
The iQOO 3 launches in India and in China on February 25th. In India, the smartphone will be exclusively available on Flipkart.
