Poco India has finally confirmed that the Poco X3 will be launched in India on September 22nd global debut in Europe last week on September 7th, not so long ago. The Poco X2, one of the most popular affordable smartphones, will follow from February.
In Europe, the Poco X3 costs € 229 (~ Rs 20,000) for the 6 + 64 GB variant and € 269 (~ Rs 23,500) for the 6 + 128 GB variant. If these prices are maintained this will be a great deal in India. However, speculation suggests that there will be slight regional differences when it arrives.
Interestingly, C. Manmohan from Poco India teased that the price of the phone will be “€ 229 = Rs 20,000 + tax” which seems like a strange ploy before starting, setting expectations. It is expected to start at under Rs 20,000 for the base variant.
Poco X3 design and display
As with most of the newer phones from the Xiaomi group, the Poco X3 will be a glass plate with a large round case over the back for the cameras. The back has a two-tone surface with a thick band in the middle that also has a large Poco logo at the bottom. Black and blue color variants are available in Europe. However, we were able to see another collection in India.
On the front there is a large 6.67-inch IPS LCD screen with a Full HD + resolution. It will have a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sample rate of 240 Hz, both of which are very rare in this segment. There is a Gorilla Glass 5 cover on the top for additional protection from scratches and drops. Thanks to Widevine L1 certification, it can also play HDR10 content and stream HD content on OTT platforms. Finally, it was also certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue light emissions.
Poco X3 specifications and features
As always, the Poco X3 shines in terms of performance. This time it is powered by the Snapdragon 732G chipset, making it the first smartphone in the world to do this. There will be up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. In addition to the Adreno 618 GPU, the phone will also include LiquidCool technology to keep thermals in check.
In contrast to the global variant, the Indian Poco X3 will not support NFC. This seems to be the only major difference between the two regions.
Essential things like expandable storage also make the cut. Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, IP53 water resistance, two stereo speakers and even a headphone jack. It will run instantly on Poco Launcher 2.0 on MIUI 12.
