A couple of weeks after launching the Poco M2 in India, the spun-off brand of Xiaomi has launched the Poco X3 in the country. It is the successor of Poco X2 which was launched earlier this year, and a variation of the Poco X3 NFC which was launched globally earlier this month. There are two differences between the Indian variant and the global model. As the name gives away, Poco X3 misses out on NFC, and comes with a slightly bigger battery in comparison.
The handset comes with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels. With a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling rate, it can also dynamically switch to 90Hz or lower refresh rate to save battery. The device is powered by Snapdragon 732G chipset and features LiquidCool technology to ensure it does not heat up when playing heavy games.
The rear camera is a quad lens setup which includes a primary 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera lens. The selfie camera is a 20MP shooter placed in a punch-hole.
It includes a fingerprint scanner mounted on the side, and is available in Cobalt Blue and Shadow Gray color options. A 6,000mAh battery (5,160mAh on the Poco X3 NFC) with 33W fast-charging supported via the USB Type-C port powers the Poco X3, which runs MIUI 12 based on Android 10.
The company is also bundling an anti-bacterial case inside the box. The Poco X3 comes in three different combinations of RAM and internal storage. The base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at ₹16,999 ($230 approximately). The 6+128GB combo is priced at ₹18,499 ($251 approximately), and the top variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB on-board storage will cost ₹19,999 ($271 approximately). It will go on sale on September 29.
