POCO has introduced a new mid-range smartphone today. It is no other than POCO X3 GT. The smartphone is a rebranded Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G launched in China. However, it takes the GT moniker in the global market due to its high-performance capabilities. Today, the Chinese company has launched POCO X3 GT in some markets of Europe and Asia. Let’s have a detailed look at POCO X3 GT and its price in Pakistan.
POCO X3 GT Specifications
The smartphone sports a 6.6 inches FHD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) IPS LCD panel. It comes with features like a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Yes, it lacks a SAMOLED panel but it is obvious that POCO is wanting to focus on performance with this phone.
The camera segment is presented with a 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro sensor. It is capable of video recording at up to 4K@30fps. On the front, you will find a 16MP selfie shooter enclosed in a punch hole notch. It lacks a 4K recording.
Performance is the main highlight of the POCO X3 GT. It is powered by Dimensity 1100 5G chipset. It is a powerful processor based on 6nm architecture. Dimensity 1100 is just a slight step down from the Dimensity 1200. It comes with four Cortex-A78 CPUs at 2.6GHz and four Cortex-A55 CPUs running at 2GHz. Talking about its Snapdragon equipment, Dimensity 1100 is on par with Snapdragon 865. Due to its 6nm architecture, it is more power-efficient compared to Snapdragon 870 (7nm). However, Snapdragon 870 will still be considered superior to Dimensity 1100 in many other sectors.
Moving to the battery, it has a huge 5000mAh capacity that can be fast-charged at 67W. It is advertised to fully charge in around 42 minutes. The smartphone comes with a side-mounted fingerprint, dual speakers by JBL, and IP53 protection. On the software segment, it rocks MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11 out of the box.
