- Poco X3 is tipped for September 22 launch in India.
- The phone could be priced at a sub Rs 20k point.
- The Indian version of the Poco X3 could be slightly different from Poco X3 NFC.
Poco recently unveiled its upcoming smartphone, the Poco X3 at a global launch event. At the time, the phone's pricing and details were announced for a number of major markets, however, the company did not reveal any information about the Poco X3's launch in India. And now, we have some information on Poco X3's big India reveal, with both the launch date and price being tipped by the latest reports online.
As per reports, the Poco X3 will launch on September 22 in India and will be slightly different than the Poco X3 that was launched globally earlier in the month. The biggest difference here is expected to be a slightly bigger battery for the Indian variant of the Poco X3, which could get a larger pack than the 5160mah in Poco X3 NFC.
The leak also claims that the Poco X3 could be priced at Rs 18,999 or Rs 19,999. This will be quite competitive as the company is selling the Poco X3 NFC at a starting price of Euro 229 in some markets.
As for the other specifications, the phone could bring similar hardware to the Poco X3 NFC. As such, there could be 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 though, 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.
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.
