iQoo’s attempt to boost sales with price cuts and the promise of major Android updates

Gotta love the competition

One of the first smartphones in India to receive the Snapdragon 865 processor, the iQoo 3 had a lot going for it even before the company tried to sweeten the deal. 

First up was the price drop announced by the company a few days ago, a mere two months after the launch of the product. The iQoo 3 saw a drop of ₹4,000 on its 8GB RAM variants while the 12GB RAM variant saw a price drop of ₹2,000.

On top of the more alluring price tag, iQoo also tweeted about the software updates in store for the iQoo 3, claiming 2 major Android updates over and above the regular security and OTA updates for the next 3 years.

We can only assume that the “2 major Android updates” mean Android 11 and Android 12. What this means is that users can now buy the iQoo 3 without worrying about its longevity, as the brand is promising to keep it up to date in terms of software for the next 3 years at least. And with the flagship-grade hardware in the device, we are pretty sure it’ll remain buttery smooth for a long time.
