iQOO launched the gaming-oriented iQOO 3 5G in February 2020. The phone was launched in three color variants – orange, black, and silver. Now the company has launched a fourth variant of the phone, except this time, it is not just another regular color variant. The new variant is a full-fledged Transformers Limited Edition themed one.
The iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition has the same internal specifications as the regular variant. It, however, comes with an Autobots logo on the back of the phone. Moreover, the back now has a carbon fiber-like finish that looks great. However, this could simply be a carbon fiber paintjob under the glass. The frame of the phone and the rims of the camera module now have a gold accent on top too. The power button on the right now also features an orange color scheme.

The iQOO 3 5G Transformers Limited Edition runs on Android 10 out of the box but the UI looks very different. There is now a completely themed look and feel, complete with special icons, wallpapers, and “interactive interfaces”. Even the packaging is special here. The whole box of the smartphone is a Transformers-themed one. There is a themed box, a sandstone-like finished case, and even a themed charger with the Autobots logo. It comes in a single 12GB/128GB configuration which makes sense. The new model will go on sale in China starting June 1, 2020. It is then that we will know how much the Limited Edition variant costs.
