Xiaomi sub-brand POCO is about to launch a successor to the POCO X2 on September 7. In this report published yesterday, we had revealed most of the hardware specifications of this mid-range smartphone. Today, a Spanish YouTuber called Tecvideos TV published an unboxing video of the phone revealing complete details of the phone – including its physical attributes and the rest of the features. As confirmed earlier, the POCO X3 is the first smartphone to feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chipset with the Adreno 618 GPU, and up to 6GB RAM.
Take a look at the video below
Previous leaks have also confirmed that the POCO X3 will feature a massive 6.67-inch 144Hz IPS LCD panel with 240Hz touch sampling rate. The phone gets a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a punch hole at the top for the selfie camera. The unboxed version also gets a dual SIM slot that is of the hybrid type. This slot can either take two SIM cards or one SIM card + one microSD card at any given time.
As confirmed in the earlier leaks, the POCO X3 gets a 64MP quad rear camera setup and a single 20MP front camera. The camera UI is similar to what we have seen on past POCO handsets. Another specification that was confirmed includes the massive 5160mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. The unit shown in the video above ran Android 10 beneath MIUI 12.0.1. We expect the Indian variant of the phone to also come loaded with the same software version.
Along with the POCO X3, the Xiaomi sub-brand also announced its intention to launch an angry level smartphone in India – the Poco M2 – on September 8. While POCO India head C Manmohan did talk about the POCO X3 in a tweet, he is yet to give a clear hint about a possible launch date for the Indian market.
Nevertheless, the POCO X3 does look like an interesting handset. Would you be considering it if and when it launches in India?
