The report states that iQOO will announce its most affordable 5G smartphone in September in India. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 4-series chip, which means it could have either the Snapdragon 480 or the Snapdragon 480 Plus chipset.

As mentioned above, the iQOO Z6 Lite 5G and Z6 Pro SE are the two Z-series that are expected to debut soon in India. Unfortunately, the rumour mill is yet to leak the specifications of both devices. However, the report speculates that iQOO’s low-priced 5G phone to debut next month could be the Z6 Lite 5G.

At present, the iQOO Z6 5G, which is priced at Rs 15,499, is the most affordable 5G-ready iQOO phone in India. Hence, it appears that the alleged iQOO Z6 Lite 5G may debut with a sub-Rs 15,000 price.

Last year, iQOO unveiled the Snapdragon 480-powered iQOO U3x in China. The device features a 6.58-inch FHD+ 90Hz display, an 8-megapixel front camera, 13-megapixel dual rear cameras, 4GB / 6GB of RAM, 64GB / 128GB storage, and a 5,000mAh battery with 18W charging. It remains to be seen whether the Z6 Lite 5G arrives as a rebranded version of the U3x or an entirely different phone.
