POCO X3 NFC: Is It Exactly What You Need?

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

Months after the return of the POCO brand with the POCO X2 and POCO F2 Pro, we now have the POCO X3 NFC! Does it live up to its tagline? Does it give you EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED?

The First Phone with the Snapdragon 732G!

The latest phone to come out of the Xiaomi sub-brand POCO will yet host another first. It will be the first smartphone to carry the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor. It has an AnTuTu Benchmark of 301,581, which beats out phones with Snapdragon 730G and 720G processors. To help cool that beast, this phone has LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus which features a larger heat pipe for that purpose.

The X3 will come with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage. You also get microSD card support up to 256GB.

A Display That Can Keep Up!

Unlike most of its competitors in its price segment, the POCO X3 has a 120Hz DotDisplay! This means you can enjoy using this phone with that smooth scrolling! The better 240Hz touch sampling rate will help the X3 be more responsive to the touch.

Worried that the battery can’t keep up with that high refresh rate display and high performance processor? This phone has you covered with a 5160 mAh battery and 33W fast charge. (And yes, that charger is included in the box.)

Can The Rest of the POCO X3 Keep Up?

It’s a good thing that it does keep up! The POCO X3 has a Finish Line design with that POCO logo aligned with the camera module. Speaking of its cameras, it has a 20MP front camera and quad rear cameras. The latter includes a 64MP Sony IMX682 main camera and a 13MP ultrawide-angle camera. On top of that, it has dual stereo speakers with Hi-Res Audio. All of the things I mentioned are really exciting, but the best part is…


YES, THAT PICTURE’S NOT FOOLING YOU! The X3 starts at P10,990 for the 6GB + 64GB model and P12,990 for the 6GB + 128GB model. That is honestly a VERY AGGRESSIVE PRICING and could seriously upend the midrange market!

On top of that, Xiaomi Philippines will have an Early Bird Price for the POCO X3 on its Shopee official store! You can get it on September 9-10 for just P9,990 (6GB + 64GB) / P11,990 (6GB + 128GB)!
