vivo’s iQOO launched the U3x 5G in March with a Snapdragon 480 5G processor. And now, the company has announced its 4G version which is powered by MediaTek chipset. This variant comes with some toned-down specs, and a cheaper price tag. The phone is called the iQOO U3x Standard Edition and is already on pre-order in China.
iQOO replaced the Snapdragon 480 with MediaTek’s Helio G80 processor and has made the phone available in two configurations – 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. The spec sheet says the storage type is eMMC 5.1 which is slower than the UFS 2.1 storage type inside the 5G version.
The screen is also smaller now at 6.51-inches and the resolution has dropped to 1600 x 720. The 90Hz refresh rate is gone too but it still has a waterdrop notch. You still get an 8MP front-facing camera and a 13MP main rear camera paired with a 2MP depth sensor.
The iQOO U3x Standard Edition is fueled by a 5000mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging. Unfortunately, iQOO has replaced the USB-C port with a micro-USB one. The device runs Origin OS for iQOO based on Android 11, supports Face Unlock or you can use the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and has Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi.
