Snapdragon 865-powered iQoo 3 gets a price cut in India

iQoo has announced a price cut on iQoo 3 flagship smartphone in India today. The price cut makes the iQoo 3 the cheapest phone with the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset in India. 

The iQoo 3 came to India in February at a starting price of Rs 36,990 but was soon revised to Rs 38,990 due to the change in the GST rate on smartphones. Interestingly, the company is now already announcing price cuts for all the variants.

This comes in as a surprise as the company is slashing the price of iQoo 3 just after hiking the prices a few ago. The company might also be looking to bring a new smartphone to India, iQoo Neo 3, which was launched in China recently.
