After launching a myriad of rebranded Redmi phones in the last six months, Poco has today taken the wraps off its first original smartphone. The Poco X3 comes as the successor to the Poco X2, which debuted in India earlier this year as the Redmi K30 4G rebrand. The Poco X3 is the world’s first phone to be powered by a Snapdragon 732G chipset. It includes a 120Hz display, 64MP quad-camera array, and a massive battery with fast-charging to turn off the feature set.

Poco X3: Specs and Features
Starting with the design, the Poco X3 features a central racing track-inspired strip running largely with DSLR-inspired camera modules. The company has adopted a new camera design and has put a humorous, iridescent Poco logo on the underside to make the device stand out. You also have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which doubles as a power button.
The Poco X3 includes a 6.67-inch full-HD + IPS LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch response rate. It supports an Hz Dynamic Switch feature ‘between 60Hz, 120Hz and 50Hz (while viewing photos) automatically – whenever and whenever the battery needs to be protected. The display also has a punch-hole cutout with a 20: 9 aspect ratio, 2400 x 1800 resolution and a 20MP selfie snapper on top.
The recently announced Snapdragon 732G chipset runs the show under the hood in this smartphone. You will also get 6GB LPDDR4x RAM and 256GB UFS 2.1 built-in storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. The Poco X3 runs Android 10-based MIUI 12, with Poco Launcher on top. It is also the first Poco phone to come with the new MIUI 12 skin out-of-the-box.
Poco X3 is also equipped with the company’s new LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus. This means that the device now includes a 70% larger copper heat pipe and graphite material to lower the temperature to 6 degrees Celsius.
The large protruding quad-camera system on the rear is built by the primary 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor. It is paired with a 13MP ultra-wide camera with 119-degree FOV, 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro camera. The camera setup supports Pro mode, new night filters and much more.
Poco x 3 cameras
Like other budget Xiaomi phones, the Poco X3 is also equipped with a massive 5,160mAh battery pack with 331 fast charging support. This is the same charging speed as the Poco M2 Pro in India. This means that you will be able to fully charge this device in about 65 minutes.
The Poco X3 includes a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 Axis (Wi-Fi 6) support in terms of connectivity. Let’s also not forget about the presence of NFC, which is in the name (Poco X3 NFC), to enable tap-to-pay on this device. It comes with dual-stereo speakers in tow and IP53 splash-proof protection.
Price and availability
The Poco X3 is priced at 229 Euro (~ Rs 19,900) for the 6GB + 64GB variant but you can get it for 199 Euro (~ 17,290 rupees) during the early bird period. The high-end 6GB + 128GB variant is priced at 269 euros (~ Rs. 23,350) and will be sold for 249 euros (~ Rs. 21,600) during the early bird period.
