The iQoo Z3 will be the first phone in India to be powered by a Snapdragon 768G chipset, unless we see another phone with the same in the next couple of weeks - which looks unlikely at this point. For those who are unaware, the Snapdragon 786G was announced more than a year ago. 

It is an octa-core chipset built on top of a 7nm process. There is a prime core clocked at 2.8Hz paired with Adreno 620 GPU. It also comes with support for 5G. In China, the device comes in three configurations  - 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB. The phone uses UFS 2.2 flash memory. It also features virtual RAM which is said to add 3GB additional storage. The device is also said to support 90/120fps gaming. 

Further, to keep the thermals under check, the device boasts a five-layer liquid cooling system which can reduce up to 10-degree. Some gaming centric features include 4D vibration, monster mode, Hawkeye display enhancement 2.0, game eye protection 2.0, and vertical and horizontal full scene antenna. 

The iQoo Z3 runs off a 4,400mAh battery with 55W Flash charge support which takes just 15 minutes to charge from 0 to 60%. The device also features a side- mounted fingerprint scanner. Lastly, the device runs on Android 11 based on OriginOS in China, however, in India we can expect it to run on FunTouch OS.
