POCO India teased the POCO F3 GT launch back in May, and revealed its plan to launch the handset sometime in Q3 in the country. The upcoming POCO F3 GT will mark the comeback of the F-series in the country, as it will be the second handset under the POCO F series. To recall, the first F-series handset – the legendary POCO F1 launched about 3 years ago in India. Now, a new report by 91mobiles suggests that the POCO F3 GT might make its debut in early August in the country. To those unaware, the upcoming F-series handset is nothing but a white-labeled Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition, that launched back in April in China.
POCO F3 GT: Price (Expected)
Based on the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition China price, we can at least predict the price band for the upcoming F3 GT. To recall, the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition launched in China at the following prices,
Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition
|6GB + 128GB
(approx Rs. 23,040)
|8GB + 128GB
(approx Rs. 25,340)
|8GB + 256GB
(approx Rs. 27,650)
|12GB + 128GB
(approx Rs. 27,650)
|12GB + 256GB
(approx Rs. 31,100)
Based on this pricing, we are expecting the handset to cost around Rs. 25,000 for the base variant in India. Similar to all other POCO handsets, the 256GB storage variant of the POCO F3 GT may not launch in India.
