As expected, Vivo earlier today in India announced a new online-only Vivo U10 Smartphone. The device is expected to go on sale in India from September 29 via Vivo’s official site and Amazon.in at a starting price of INR8,990 ($125/€115). The device has already made its way out of India as the firm earlier today also announced the device in China, but under a new moniker. In China, Vivo is selling the Vivo U10 as the Vivo U3x. The design, as well as specs, remain the same.
vivo U3X Pricing in China
In China, the U3x is available in Deep Lake Blue, Midnight Black, and a new Tea Red color options. Pricing starts at 799 Yuan (~$112) for the 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage variant and goes up to 899 Yuan (~$126) for the 3 GB RAM + 64 GB storage. The 4GB version is priced at 999 Yuan (~$140).
Much like the U1O, the Vivo U3X highlights a 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charge support, and triple rear camera setup. It gets a largely polycarbonate body with gradient color appeal with a footprint of 159.43 x 76.77 x 8.92mm, while the weight climbs up to 190.5 grams, all thanks to its huge 5000mAh battery size. It features a 6.35″ HD+ display with little or no bezels on both sides, a water-drop notch, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC.
