iQOO 3 5G, Snapdragon 865 SoC Overview

Hi there, this is Rohit, and today we take a look at this brand new iQOO 3 5G smartphones and this is a new company and they also have a 4G variant that is also launching in India.

This is again a pretty high-end gaming smartphone that you’re getting it comes with the flagship snapdragon 865 SOC and this high-end a variant of the 5G will come with the 12 gigabytes of RAM and I believe 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 Ram.

There are 6GB and  8GB of Ram variant and with 128GB of storage and this is supposed to also have a very faster charger of 55 Watt charger so this is the 5G variant so and we have the Google assistant.

It says in-display fingerprint scanner and Super AMOLED screen and we have in this color great and relax and another thing is that it also has something like what do you say for gaming extra triggers over here they call it pressure-sensitive buttons monster touch the core.

Anyways not because someone is asking but because you want to so just say iQOO 3 5G Smartphones and this opens up and we are getting sim ejector tools with it and some booklets actually quite a few booklets and USB Type-C cable.

And wow this is actually very very different like a pill capsule this is something new design I am seeing but I guess you got to use this one with the charger because it has that massive 55 Watt charging so type C port but very unique and we also have this that is a case that is supplied it’s not totally transparent.

This is how it will look if you put it in the case anyways let’s just put this to the side and this is that massive charger in  3 5G and it’s actually of as you can see in the last 11 volts at output that is 55 watts so massive charging and according to the material what I got the PDF document it says that you can charge this device up to 50 percent with just 15 minutes of charge with this one iQOO 3 5G Smartphones.

So indeed pretty interesting but again I would say use the supplied cable for the best charging so anyways that’s nice we are getting the super-fast charger they call it super flash charger in fact and looks like these are the gear phones that you are getting and get some extra gear tips also.

Here we have and these are in here again with the iQOO branding at the back and let’s see we also have extracted just sing single button this whole area button paper and collar and an integrated microphone so that’s what we get in the box guys.

Let me give you a physical overview before we proceed and this one is having a 3.5mm headphone jack and the body is metallic guys and again that this 3.5mm headphone jack is also considered to have a high five back so I’m assuming the output would be good of iQOO 3 5G Smartphones.

We have a secondary noise cancellation microphone and here as I’ve told you those two buttons virtual buttons for gaming that you can use they are pressure-sensitive and here we have the volume rocker and the power of button and again the build quality and the tactile fields to be actually very nice on this one bottom.

We have the main speaker with the USB Type-C four main microphone and here is your SIM and again it’s not hybrid you can only put two nano cents over here one over here I am assuming why are we here so that’s what you have so.

The storage is what you have and over here we also have an extract this is known as a convenience key you can map it to what for example by default it is for Google Assistant they call it the smart key we can even customize it.

I believe so again and back we have that quad-camera setup even on this one and so let’s do one thing let’s just power this on and by the time it actually boots up and I set it up let me give you a configuration overview this iQOO 3 5G Smartphones is having a 6.44-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen.

It sparked by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SOC with the Adreno 650 GPU it comes in 8 and 12 GB of ram, and storage will be 128 or 256.

Going to the camera the main camera is a 48-megapixel primary sensor then you have a 13 megapixel that’s a telephoto zoom lens then we have a 13 megapixel again’s ultra-wide and 2 megapixel is proper, ok lets moving to the front-facing camera it’s a 16 megapixel.

We have a 4,440mAh power battery with that 55 Watt super-fast charger and a high five, so guys here you’ll get a bunch of wraps re-installed, pre-installed apps and which is remover so yeah you can do a flip card.

This is an AMOLED screen guy so we have that in-display fingerprint scanner and as you can see it’s really really fast in-display fingerprint scanner that you are getting on this so very very fast and we have some quick toggles over here as you can see we also have the ultra game mode over here with iQOO 3 5G Smartphones.

And we also have that monster mode here if we enable the monster more and everything like goes dark I think so this is the mode where everything is open and gets the maximum performance so you have that and that’s why I think so everywhere they’re using the tag monster hashtag.

Anyways if we go over here this is the higher-end ingredients that come with 12 gigabytes of RAM and we are getting that Custom iQOO UI 1.0 Android 10 so that’s actually nice you’re getting out of the box and for now, this is the higher-end very intense 256 gigabytes of storage that you are getting.

And this is the new Snapdragon 865 SOC so we are having that and this is 5G already device also obviously in India we don’t have 5G coverage so we can’t test it but I feel it will make sense to a person who’s traveling a lot internationally because in some of the European countries and we have 5G available.

So if you travel frequently and use their SIM card then you can take advantage of 5G but as of nerf India we don’t have 5G and I’m happy that you launched the 4G variant of this device and again it’s not really really big and huge I would say that’s nice 6.44-inch is nice.

And but yeah having a custom UI but initial impression is very fluid and this is your multitasking tray so that’s what we have and let’s know also we have those triggers and stuff, for example, one thing I completely forgot if we go over here again.

It has some specific gaming modes and all those things and this button as I’ve told you this convenience button if you press it once the Google assistant starts but you can actually customize it for what you want and we also have this Javis over here as a stent a here.

This is the smart button and if you go over here you can customize what you want by default it is set to that Google assistant when you click but you can go for Google search or nothing to do and DoubleTap we have the Javis vision or you can set it to Google assistant visual snap stop or just to a Google search.

So whatever you want you can set it so that’s actually nice and one thing I forgot if you go to the display I noticed there if you go to display here we do have that anti-flicker option which is important for our AMOLED phones.

And if you close that you might notice some flicker because I’ve kept the camera on a high sensitivity and but you can just my gate it by switching it on and another thing is that generally in normal what do you say and watch phones the touch of response what we call the touch sensitivity is generally set to 120 Hertz whereas on this it’s about 180 so about 50% more.

So that’s also a nice thing and as you can see it’s a pretty fluid again you should expect that because of that test snapdragon 865 again it’ll be bestirring on it again, that anyways now moving to the camera which is again an important factor these days in any smartphone here.

Also, we have that quad-camera setup and the main camera this time they went with the 48 megapixels with F 1.8 then we have 4 zooms then 13-megapixel ultra-wide and 2 megapixels that is for a portrait book mode and a front-facing camera is that 16 again it’s that punch hole type of a camera that we are having.

So let’s look at the camera interface I’m pretty simple 1X it says and you can go to the wide-angle and again the wide-angle this huge difference as you can see me take a shot and we also have that 2X zoom and so that’s nice that’s easy to do and the layout is very easy well it’s not confusing as you’ll see over here.

You can just directly go to the portrait mode and by default, it went off the two exomes so you can go back to the 1X and real-time I’m seeing the background blur hopefully you guys can also see that as you can see there if you have to photo mode regular more video mode we are having and we have a bunch of other modes.

Also that you will expect a dedicated 48-megapixel mode is also given and pro mode is also there shown for manual stuff and if I go here we also have a is scene detection and all those things and we read resolution is up to 4K so let’s just go back over here and let’s also see the front-facing camera if I can just remove it over here.

And it’s going in the vial full-screen mode as you can see and we also have the portrait mode initial samples look to be good here let me do one thing let me actually take some sample shots outdoor so that we have a better idea regarding the camera so these are the samples taken with the rear-facing camera and expected as you can see the rear-facing camera performance is very good this is a regular mode here iQOO 3 5G Smartphones.

I use the zoom mode and find me here I use the wide-angle lens and as you can see the color reproduction is ready good and even for small objects I could focus it and these are some of the close-up shots that I don’t know and as you can see they came out to be actually pretty good.

And overall I would say the color reproduction is also very good as you can see with these samples now moving to artificial and indoor lighting conditions you don’t sound surprised that the results were actually pretty good as shots taken in my office and completely artificial lightning this is the zoom and finally, this was the wide-angle lens as moving to human subjects in artificial lighting.

 iQOO 3 5G Smartphones. These are some of the samples that I took and again as you can see the results were good we also have the zoom mode as I’ve told you and this was the right angle lens and here I use that portrait bouquet mode and you can also use that zoom option in that and finally this was the wide-angle lens overall I would say the camera performance even artificial lighting was good and with the front-facing camera this was with the regular board and this was with that portrait bouquet mode.

So, guys, that’s it for now for the overview and first look at this iQOO 5G variant of the smartphone so what do you guys think about the same of this part certainly in terms of specs I would say the specs are really good and I like the fact that they didn’t commit the 3.5 mm headphone jack it says that it has that – audio so I will test it out and later on let you guys know how’s the performance and again I’m also curious to see how would be the battery life performance because it’s from what I have read the snapdragon 865 though it’s an actually pretty powerful processor it’s also a power-efficient processor compared to the Snapdragon 855.

so I’m assuming that the battery life on this one will also be very good but anyways what do you guys think about this iQOO 3 that’s the 5G variant and I’m glad that they even launched the 4G variant anyways guys that’s it, for now, thanks for reading this is Rohit and I hope to see you in my next article take care guys.
