Following the success of the iQOO 7 series in India, the company now appears to be preparing to launch the iQOO Z series in the region. The phone has already received BIS registration and has been assigned the model number V2073A by the Indian IMEI website. With the iQOO Z series, the company is finally focusing on a more budget-friendly segment as it’s well known for its flagship segment in the country. The first-ever iQOO Z series smartphone we can anticipate is likely the iQOO Z3 5G which was launched in March in China. Now, a well-known leakster @StuffListings (Mukul Sharma) has tipped the first iQOO Z-series smartphone to launch in India by Mid-June, and the device could be exclusive to Amazon.

The iQOO Z3 comes with a 6.58-inch FHD+ LCD display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a resolution of 2408×1080 pixels, and a 20:9 aspect ratio.
