POCO today launched its latest phone: POCO X3. Tailored to young tech and gaming enthusiasts, it adopts a unique go-faster design that screams power. The device puts performance above all else, offering only the most useful high-end specs with no frills at a tiny fraction of the usual price.
Debuting Qualcomm’s newest and most powerful 700-series 4G+ processor, the SnapdragonTM 732G, POCO X3 boasts incredible performance that lasts up to two days on one charge thanks to the handset’s large 6000mAh battery. Meanwhile, the phone’s 120Hz creates an incredibly smooth and responsive experience superior to most flagships on the market.
World’s first Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 732G powered smartphone
As a perfect daily driver, POCO X3 is all about incredible everyday use and gaming experience. Running on Qualcomm’s most powerful 4G+ processor to date, the Snapdragon™ 732G, POCO X3 offers sustained peak performance and AI capabilities that will impress even the most demanding gamers thanks to its architecture based on the KryoTM 470 octa-core CPU and Adreno™ 618 GPU.
To ensure steady operation and frictionless user experience, the device embeds LiquidCool Technology Plus combining an enlarged copper heat pipe with multiple layers of graphite that work together to reduce the heat of the phone’s processor by up to an additional 6°C.
The phone’s incredible performance is further optimized for gaming thanks to the latest iteration of Game Turbo 3.0, the utility that tunes the phone in accordance with game requirements. Additionally, the phone’s Z-Shocker Haptics ensure superb haptic feedback with over 150 vibration modes for different scenarios.
RealityFlow 120Hz display with stereo speakers
POCO X3 sports a stunning edge-to-edge 16.94cm (6.67) FHD+ display with a powerful combination of a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate.
POCO X3 boasts one of the smoothest screens in its price category. The DynamicSwitch function allows the phone to save power by automatically navigating between 50, 60, 90 and 120Hz depending on the use case and the format of content displayed on the screen. This allows the phone’s refresh rate to go up for high-capacity situations like gaming and down for lighter operations like reading.
The 240hz touch sampling rate further reinforces the phone’s extraordinary display capabilities. POCO X3 boasts 33% faster response than most flagships currently on the market, providing for an exceptionally satisfying user experience as well as giving users a noticeable competitive advantage even in the most sophisticated games.
POCO X3 is also the first-ever POCO phone to ship with dual stereo speakers for an immersive gaming experience. Meanwhile, the speakers’ ability to self-clean ensures steady operation and unmuffled audio even in the long run.
64MP AI Quad Camera
POCO X3 sports a top-notch rear quad-camera system consisting of a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor.
The phone’s main camera is a flagship Sony IMX 682 sensor supporting ƒ/1.89 aperture and 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel and outputting detailed and ultra-clear pictures. The 13MP ultra-wide angle camera boasts a 119° field of view propped up by ƒ/2.2 aperture, while the 2MP macro camera and depth sensor complete the setup offering extra functionality and reinforcing the main lens’ capabilities.
On the front, the device sports an in-screen 20MP camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel, ideal for taking unblemished selfies.
For those trying to stand out from the crowd POCO X3 packs a slew of Pro mode features including Cyberpunk mode, Gold Vibes Mode and an all-new AI Skyscaping 3.0 that present new creative ways to brighten up users’ social media feed.
Video enthusiasts can make use of the device’s 4K video recording as well as features including smooth video zoom, focus peaking and AE/AF lock. The included LOG/RAW format support and Vlog mode not only ensure that users can capture their most important moments in utmost quality, but also turn the phone into a semi-professional workstation for video content production.
Two-day 6000mAh battery with 33W MMT fast charging
Top-grade specs on the POCO X3 are further enhanced with a battery that lasts. To guarantee that users can enjoy all of its amazing features, POCO X3 is equipped with a large 6000mAh battery that lasts over two days under moderate usage. The handset supports 33W fast charging (out of the box) which not only means that the device can be charged to 100% in only 86 minutes, but also that a mere 30-minute charge will fill it up to 60%.
The increased charging speed is achieved through Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology. In conventional batteries, the electric current is coming from the bottom of the module, filling it upwards, thus resulting in considerably slower charging speed. Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology is based on a different method in which the battery receives the electric current from the middle and spreads it simultaneously to the top and bottom of the module. This allows for faster and more consistent charging speed compared to traditional layouts.
