POCO F3 and POCO X3 Pro Launched Globally!

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

POCO just had their event and they unleashed two new smartphones: the POCO X3 Pro and the POCO F3! Both phones aim to be disruptors in the midrange space and I think they did just that!

POCO X3 Pro: Exactly What You Need and More!

The POCO X3 Pro carries the same design identity as the X3 NFC but with a tweaked dual-tone back that has matte sides for better grip. It also carries the same 6.67-inch DotDisplay as that X3 NFC with all the 120Hz refresh rate goodness.

What’s new with the X3 Pro is the new Snapdragon 860 processor and the use of UFS 3.1 storage for better performance. This is great for those who are looking for the best possible performance in a 4G smartphone. Despite the powered-up processor and storage, it has the same 5160 mAh battery as the X3 NFC. It’s a good thing this phone also has DynamicSwitch technology. It helps to ramp down or ramp up the refresh rate of the display to help save battery life.

POCO F3: The Real Beast!

If the X3 Pro is the 4G flagship, then the POCO F3 is the company’s 5G flagship. The design looks eerily similar to the sister company Xiaomi‘s flagship, the Mi 11. The similarities end there though. This phone has the Snapdragon 870, a slightly better version of the Snapdragon 865+ processor.
