The Poco F3 GT is here and along with it, comes an all new and unique pricing strategy that Poco is calling Mad Reverse Pricing or MRP. In simple words, the earlier you buy this phone, the better deal you will get. Leading up to the Poco F3 GT launch, the smartphone maker had maintained that this phone will not be as aggressively priced as the cult Poco 1, which was launched almost three years ago and became highly popular among smartphone enthusiasts. That's largely because of the current market situation where the components have become costlier.
Indeed, the Poco F3 GT is more expensive than its predecessor but, also brings some significant upgrades. It is the first Poco smartphone to feature a 120Hz AMOLED display, is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, boasts of a 64-megapixel main camera and ships with a highly impressive 67W fast charger. On top of it, you also get two magnetic triggers on the phone for gaming.
Poco F3 GT price in India has been set at Rs 26,999 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, Rs 28,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, while the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant of the phone will cost Rs 30,999.
However, you can get the smartphone for less till August 12 with Poco's new pricing scheme. The company has announced that the phone will sell for Rs 1,000 less for the first week, Rs 500 less for the second week and will only retail for the actual price post August 12. Still confused?
