After the success of Poco F1, the company disappeared from the scene for almost two years. It made a comeback with the first Poco X2 in India in February and only six months later, the company is gearing up to launch its successor, the Poco X3, in global markets. The Poco X3 is expected to debut on September 8 next month, but has not yet been officially confirmed.
Meanwhile, Poco’s Global Product Marketing Manager, Angus Kai Ho Ng has fun tidbits for Poco X3 on Twitter. They have already shared two key features for the upcoming device, which you can read about below:
The teaser confirms that the Poco X3 will come with a 64MP primary sensor, which is similar to its predecessor. It is currently unknown whether this will be the same Sony sensor or upgrade. The device will likely include a quad-camera array, with the presence of ultra-wide sensors confirmed in a follow-up tweet.
The executive did not provide more details about the upcoming device. They offered a quick look at the new camera UI and Pro Mode features, however, with a camera sample clicked with the Poco X3. If you adjust the brightness and contrast of the image on the left, it confirms that the display in the Poco X3 will include a center punch-hole cutout, as shown in the leaked render above.
Another teased, posted yesterday, states that the Poco X3 can be fully charged in just 65 minutes. The tweet also includes a comparison with the Galaxy A71, which sports a 4,500mAh battery and a 25W charger. This suggests that the Poco X3 will be launched in India with the same 33W fast charging technology as the Poco M2 Pro.
The company claims that its 33W fast charger can juice the device from 0% to 50% within 30 minutes, so it feels right when fully charged in 65 minutes. If rumors are to be believed, the Poco X3 will be equipped with a larger battery of 5,160mAh.
In addition, there are hints on the PocoX3 being powered by the Snapdragon 732 chipset that will be announced in the coming days. There is no mention of RAM and storage variants. It will also include a 20MP selfie snapper and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Leaked renders also suggest that it will claim an original design as opposed to a Redmi rebrand this time.
Now, we all need to wait for Poco’s official announcement to learn more about the upcoming Mid-Ranger. It is currently uncertain whether it will compete with the OnePlus Nord or replace the Poco X2 in the market.
