Budget smartphone king POCO had just launched two of their latest devices, the POCO F3 and POCO X3 Pro, featuring killer specs and and prices!
POCO F3 Details
The POCO F3 basically succeeds the F2, with an all new design language that closely resembles the mi 11, but with their own flair of course. It’s powered by an unusual Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G chipset that i’ve yet to see on other brands. The display is a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ resolution panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. What’s mad is the 360Hz touch sampling and up-to 1,300 nits of peak brightness.
As for memory you’ll get up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The battery has a 4,520 mAh capacity and supports up to 33W of fast charging. The new gold standard of today.
Camera wise the POCO F3 sports a triple rear camera setup, a 48-megapixels f/1.79 aperture main camera, an 8-megapixels ultrawide and a 5-megapixels telemacro (what is this even). For selfies you’ll be provided with a hole-punched 20-megapixel camera.
POCO X3 Pro Details
It seems that the F series isn’t the only one getting a succession model. The X series has always been more value focused, providing users access to decent specs at affordable price tags, but it seems now, even the X3 Pro is getting in on that flagship level game, coming in hot with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chipset. Pairing it up with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x memory and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, it seems like a good start for people to start going crazy for this thing. The battery’s bumped up too, with a 5,160mAh juice pack with up to 33W fast charging as well!
Let’s not stop there. The display is a 6.67-inch 120Hz FHD+ IPS panel that can go up to 240Hz in touch sampling. Seems like gamers are going to appreciate this. The 3.5mm audio jack makes a return as well, sweetening things up for everyone out there.
There’s a quad-camera setup, consisting of a 48-megapixel f/1.79 main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide and 2-megapixel depth sensor and a macro sensor, and just like the F3, possibly the very same hole-punched 20-megapixel front-facing camera.
