iQOO 3 gets a price cut in India in 2 months of launch, now starts at Rs. 34990

iQOO launched its first smartphone in India – iQOO 3 in 4G and 5G variants earlier this year at a starting price of Rs. 36,990. The recent GST Rate hike on smartphones bumped up the starting price to Rs. 38,990. But now, after 2 months of launch, iQOO has announced price cuts on all the variants of iQOO 3 smartphone.

iQOO 3 4G 8GB+128GB model is now priced at Rs. 34,990, against its previous selling price of Rs. 38,990. Similarly, the 8GB+256GB model is now priced at Rs. 37,990, against its previous selling price of Rs. 41,990. The top-end 5G variant with 12GB RAM + 256GB storage is now priced at Rs. 44,990 (this was the launch price), against its previous selling price of Rs. 46,990 (after GST Rate hike). This means iQOO 3 has received up to Rs. 4000 price cut in India now.

Smartphone Launch Price Price after GST Hike New Price Price Cut
iQOO 3 4G 8+128GB Rs. 36,990 Rs. 38,990 Rs. 34,990 Rs. 4000
iQOO 3 4G 8+256GB Rs. 39,990 Rs. 41,990 Rs. 37,990 Rs. 4000
iQOO 3 5G 12+256GB Rs. 44,990 Rs. 46,990 Rs. 44,990 Rs. 2000

The revised price is now reflecting on iQOO’s e-Store, but as e-commerce companies cannot sell “non-essential” goods during lockdown, you will not be able to purchase it right now. Once the restriction is lifted, the revised price should be reflecting on Flipkart as well.
