vivo iQOO U3X 5G arrives with Snapdragon 480 chipset and familiar looks

The Chinese manufacturer vivo has just announced today another addition to its gaming branch of smartphones – the iQOO U3X 5G. The phone, initially available only in China, has a Snapdragon 480 chipset, two cameras on the back and a big 5,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging.

If the specs look familiar, that’s because the vivo iQOO U3X is a rebranded vivo Y31s. It comes with the very same 6.58” LCD with Full HD+ resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate. The dual-cam setup on the back consists of a 13 MP main + 2 MP depth combo, while the front-facing cam is 8 MP with fixed focus and an f/2.0 aperture.

Since the phone is part of a gaming series, vivo ditched the Funtouch OS 10.5 and equipped the phone with its latest Origin OS that also has Multi-Turbo 5.0 – software that gets the max capacity of the hardware in order for games to run smoothly.

There’s even the so-called “Memory Fusion”, in which if the 8 GB RAM is not enough, the phone uses 3 GB extra from the storage to dump some of the data, essentially making the phone perform like a device with 11 GB RAM.
