Poco is set to launch its new smartphone later this month. Expected to be the Poco X3 Pro, the smartphone will be launched in India on March 30 but will be unveiled in global markets on March 22. Poco has claimed that this smartphone will be a successor to 2018's Poco F1 in terms of performance. The Poco F1 was positioned in the mid-range category and became popular because of its high performance to value ratio.
Few details about the upcoming smartphone have already emerged. Now, a European retailer has also leaked the prices of the Poco X3 Pro. According to the link, the Poco X3 Pro price in the global markets will be set at just 269 (Rs 23,250) for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The 8GB of RAM and 256GB variant of the smartphone is tipped to sell for 319 (Rs 27,572).
Given Poco's pricing in the past and what it had achieved with the Poco F1, the India pricing of the Poco X3 Pro is expected to be on the aggressive side. Both the variants are likely to be positioned under Rs 25,000. However, an official word on it will be out only on March 30.
The phone is expected to be offered in Metal Bronze, Frost Blue, and Phantom Black.
The Poco X3 Pro will follow-up last year's Poco X3 in the country. The Poco X3 features a 6.67-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate and Gorilla Glass 5 layer.
