vivo's iQOO U3x 5G debuts with a 90Hz refresh rate and Snapdragon 480 SoC

 Recently, vivo’s gaming sub-brand iQOO just launched the iQOO U3x in China on Monday, making it the latest budget 5G smartphone in the lineup. Its design looks familiar as several reports confirm that it’s a rebranded version of Vivo Y31s. It’s built around the same 6.58-inch Full HD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a dewdrop notch to feature its 8MP front-facing camera for selfies. 

It has a dual-camera setup attached on the rear with 13MP as its main alongside its 2MP depth unit. The Snapdragon 480 5G SoC powers the device, and it runs on the latest Android 11 with Origin OS for iQOO on top out-of-the-box, with Adreno 619 GPU and a dedicated Muli-Turbo 5.0 feature for gaming. The processor is accompanied by up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 2.1 onboard storage.

The iQOO U3x offers a long 5,000mAh battery that supports an 18W Dual Engine fast-charging experience. Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.1, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.


The iQOO U3x 5G is available for pre-orders in China and will go on sale starting on April 1st and it comes in three variants: the 6GB+64GB variant is priced at CNY 1,199 (roughly Php 8.95K), while the 4GB+128GB variant is priced at the same CNY 1,199 (roughly Php 8.95K), on the other hand, the 8GB+128GB variant is priced at CNY 1,499 (roughly Php 11.2K).
