- The smartphone also gets a big 6000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
- The Poco X3 is powered by a Snapdragon 732G SoC.
After a short wait, Poco has finally launched its latest smartphone, the Poco X3 in India. The smartphone has been launched in the country as the successor to the Poco X2 and comes after the device had previously been launched in select European markets earlier in the year.
The Poco X3 is the company's latest smartphone which brings with itself some impressive hardware, including a 120Hz display, Snapdragon 732G SoC, and a quad-camera set-up, all at an aggressive price point. In terms of the price, the phone is priced very aggressively, with the device retailing for a starting price of Rs 16,999 for the entry-level 6GB + 64GB variant.
The mid variant with 6GB+128GB variant will be available for Rs 18,499. The higher-end one with 6GB RAM and 256GB of storage will be up for retail for Rs 19,999. Much like other Poco smartphones, even this one is a Flipkart exclusive that will be available for purchase from September 29.
Poco X3: Specifications
The Poco X3 comes to India with a bigger battery and no NFC as compared to the global variant of the device. However, the rest of the major features remain the same between the two devices.
As such, there is a 6.67-inch display that's capable of churning out Full HD+ resolution and running at a fast 120Hz refresh rate with 240mss touch sampling rate while doing so. The panel here is an IPS LCD one, with the company opting against going with an AMOLED panel to keep costs in check.
Under the hood, we have Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 732G chipset which the company claims brings substantial performance gains over last year's Snapdragon 730G. Interestingly, this is also the first phone to use this chip, so this should give the Poco X3 a definite advantage over its competitors.
The chipset will be paired with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. Keeping this core hardware cool will be the company's LiquidCool 1.0 Plus system. The Poco X3 also gets a 6000mAh battery which can be charged using a 33W fast charger supplied in the box. There's also an IR blaster and a fingerprint scanner on the device. There's also an IP53 rating and sheets of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the device for protection.
For cameras, the Poco X3 gets a quad-camera setup on the back. The camera comprises of a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor with f/1.9 aperture along with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture. Along with that, there are also 2-megapixel dual cameras for depth and macro shots. For the selfie, the Poco X3 gets a single-lens camera setup.
