We got the official renders, the specifications & other details of the Poco X3 in the past couple of weeks & after so many leaks & rumours, we finally got to know the launch date. Poco announced on its Twitter handle that it is launching the X3 on 7th of September which means just a week is left for the unveiling.
It is worth noticing that the company is calling it Poco X3 “NFC” because, in markets like India, the phone is launching without NFC (we don’t know the India launch date).
The Poco X2 launched in February this year & marked the return of the brand after a gap of more than a year. It is still one of the best phones that you can buy under Rs 20,000 in India.
The Poco X3 is coming with some noticeable upgrades, one of which includes a whole new design. There is now a single hole-punch design on the front like the Poco M2 Pro & on the rear, there is now a new design for the Quad camera setup. The phone also has a big Poco branding on the rear. The fingerprint scanner remains on the side, so there isn’t an AMOLED panel. Still, there is a 120Hz LCD panel just like the Poco X2.
One of the highlights of this phone is the SOC. It is going to be the first smartphone with the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SOC which offers a 15% better GPU performance compared to the Snapdragon 730G. The Kryo 470 CPU remains the same but compared to 2.2GHz clock speed of Snapdragon 730G, it is slightly higher at 2.3GHz in case of Snapdragon 732G.
So in a nutshell, the Poco X3 has a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz LCD panel, Snapdragon 732G, a 5,160mAh battery, 33W Fast Charging, 20 Megapixel selfie camera & a 64 Megapixel Quad camera setup.
