iQoo recently announced that it had revised the price of iQoo 3 due of coronavirus pandemic. Now, the phone is available on Flipkart for delivery in select pin codes that fall in the Green and Orange zones. In the most recent guidelines by the government, the country has been categorised in different coloured zones, including Red, Orange, and Green. While Red Zones are still facing strict restrictions, the relaxation of services in the Orange and Green has led to manufacturers and e-commerce websites opening deliveries again.
Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has announced that e-commerce platforms including Amazon and Flipkart can now take orders for non-essential products, including smartphones, TVs, and laptops for deliveries in Green and Orange zones.
Following the likes of Xiaomi, Realme, OnePlus, iQoo India has made its announcement on Twitter stating that the iQoo 3 is back on Flipkart from today.

The 8GB + 256GB options is priced at Rs. 37,990 while the 12GB + 256GB variant is priced at Rs. 44,990.
