Yordan, 22 March 2021

The Chinese manufacturer vivo today announced another addition to its iQOO brand - 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 90Hz refresh rate. The camera setup on the back consists of a 13MP main and 2MP depth units, while the front-facing camera has an 8MP sensor, fixed focus and f/2.0 aperture.

The iQOO U3X 5G runs Origin OS that also has Multi-Turbo 5.0 - for allocating all of the available processing power to gaming when needed.

There’s even the so-called “Memory Fusion”, in which if the 8GB RAM is not enough, the phone uses 3GB from the storage to dump some of the data.

So they'll use 3GB paging file on the internal memory. Windblows has been doing it for years.

.....but why though? Especially since it's only for China...
