- Poco X3 is going on sale in India later today.
- The phone gets a Snapdragon 732G SoC.
- The device also gets a 6.67-inch display.
Launched as the successor to the popular Poco X2, the Poco X3 was announced as the company's latest bet for the Indian market. 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.
The phone will be available for purchase in India starting 12pm today via the company's partner platform, Flipkart. There will be a few sale offers also, including a 5 percent discount on ICICI Credit Card EMIs, 5 percent cashback on Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card. In terms of the price, the phone is 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.
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.
