Android Version MIUI 12 for POCO based on Android 10

In all honesty, this phone is one hell of midrange phone.

Design-wise it looks and feels like all of the POCO phones previously released sporting the round camera module (now with a rectangle cut out) and the hole-punch cut for the front facing camera.

The new POCO X3 is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chip, which consists one Kryo 470 “Prime” core clocked at up to 2.3GHz, one Kryo 470 “Performance” core clocked at up to 2.2GHz, and six Kryo 470 “Efficiency” cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz.  This new SoC also includes an Adreno 618 GPU, which boasts of 15% better graphics performance than the Adreno 618 on the Snapdragon 730G chipset.

The processor isn’t just the headline feature of this new POCO phone.  The screen hits all the right marketing bits too.  6.67-inch FHD+ LCD DotDisplay with a resolution of 2400×1800 pixels, 120Hz refresh rate, and 240Hz touch sampling rate – yes 240Hz, this should turn heads with people really adamant about screen responsiveness especially for rhythm games.  The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and offers a contrast ratio of 1500:1.

The camera was the weakest spec of the original POCO phone in my opinion and they surely bumped it up quite a notch here.  The POCO X3 ships with a with a 64MP Sony IMX682 f/1.89 primary sensor, a 13MP wide-angle sensor with a 119-degree FoV, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor.  Marketed as a quad camera setup, having 2 of them as sensors means there’s only 2 usable ones at back.

The POCO X3 NFC packs in a 5,160mAh battery with support for 33W fast wired charging and more importantly will ship with a 33W charger — something you don’t have to shell extra for.

The POCO X3 NFC will be available in two RAM/storage variants, which have been priced as follows:

  • 6GB + 64GB: €229 (₱10,990)
    • Early Bird offer: €199 (₱9,990)
  • 6GB + 128GB: €269 (₱12,990)
    • Early Bird offer: €249 (₱11,990)

Do note that the Early Bird price is only available at Xiaomi’s Global store on Shopee from September 9-10! https://shopee.ph/xiaomiofficialstore.ph
