iQOO unveiled the iQOO 3 5G back in February in three colors – Volcano Orange, Tornado Black, and Quantum Silver. Today, the Chinese phone maker brought a special edition of the iQOO 3 5G, called iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition.
The iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition shares the internals of the regular iQOO 3 5G but comes with an Autobots logo on the back below which is the company logo and up top, right next to the cameras, is the text that reads “Monster Inside”.
The back panel has a carbon fiber look that’s likely just a special paint job under the glass. The rims of the L-shaped quad camera module have a golden color accent, just like the frames and volume rocker, with the power button on the right side painted with an orange color.
The iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition runs Android 10-based iQOO UI out of the box but it comes loaded with special icons, wallpapers, and “interactive interfaces” customized to the Transformers theme.
Additionally, the Transformers Limited Edition arrives in a special retail box which includes a Transformers-branded protective case and charger.
The iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition comes in a single 12GB/128GB configuration and will go on sale in China starting June 1, which is also when we’ll get to know its price.
The regular version with the same memory configuration is priced at CNY3,798 ($535/€490), but we assume the Transformers Limited Edition will command a premium.
