A special discount offer makes the Vivo iQOO 3 the cheapest Snapdragon 865 phone available on the Indian market right now. Undercutting the OnePlus 8 by 25 percent, the discounted iQOO 3 offers remarkable value for money with an 800-nit HDR screen, 4440 mAh battery, and 55W charging.

Thanks to a special discount offer, the Vivo iQOO 3 is now the cheapest Snapdragon 865 smartphone on the Indian market. At INR31,990 (equivalent to US$423), the iQOO 3 is INR 10,000 cheaper than the OnePlus 8. It's also a whopping Rs. 33,000 cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S20. For Galaxy S20 money, you can pick up two Vivo iQOO 3s, a pair of entry-level earbuds and still have a bit left.

This is also the first time we're seeing a Snapdragon 865 phone sell for significantly less than Apple's entry-level A13-powered iPhone SE. With an 800-nit 6.4-in HDR AMOLED display, a 48MP IMX582 camera sensor, a hefty 4440 mAh battery with 55W Flash Charge, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and running Android 10 out of the box, the iQOO 3 offers a remarkable amount of value for money.

It's important to point out, though, that this isn't a simple sticker-price discount. You'll need an ICICI Credit or Debit card in order to avail the full discount on Flipkart. Hower, the iQOO 3 is still available to customers of other banks at INR 34,990, which is still substantially lower than the sticker price for any other Snapdragon 865 smartphone out on the market right now.
