Fans of the Poco smartphones have long been calling for the successor to the Xiaomi Poco F1 smartphone, which at one time, started to step on mid-range phone toes. After several models in the middle and lower range, such as the Poco M3 or Poco X3, a new pair of Poco phones are coming out to the market, which will attract both those who do not want to spend the entire wage on the phone and fans of the original F1.

The Poco X3 Pro which we reported about a couple of days ago won’t certainly stay unnoticed.

Poco X3 Pro: Under the hood

The upcoming smartphone is powered by the new Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 860 which together with Adreno 640 GPU will provide enough performance for daily tasks and occasional gaming. The Poco X3 Pro will also get 6/8 GB RAM which will help the phone to keep up with multitasking. As today’s apps tend to get bigger with every update, the Poco X3 Pro will offer enough internal storage space with either 128 GB or even 256GB, both expandable via MicroSD cards.

Poco X3 Pro: Display

The next important aspect will surely be the display. The Poco X3 Pro has 6.67-inch Full HD+ DotDisplay with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It also features a LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus which will make sure your device is always cooled done during your passionate gaming sessions as well as passively contributes to a longer hardware lifetime. From the front, you can also notice the 20MP (f/2.2) selfie camera which is built in a small punch hole in the middle of the screen.

Poco X3 Pro: Camera

By the revealed specs, the Poco X3 Pro’s hasn’t got as impressive camera setup as the Poco X3, however, as the previous tweets from the company showed us, the photos actually turn out quite well. The Poco X3 Pro has a 48MP main sensor with an f/1.8 lens accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, capable of shooting at up to 119°. There are also small 2 MP sensors for macro shots and depth measuring (bokeh effect).

Poco X3 Pro: Battery

The Poco X3 Pro has a 5,160 mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging with an adapter (USB-C) included in the box.

Poco X3 Pro: Features

The new smartphone also features stereo speakers, UFS 3.1 storage, NFC, Bluetooth 5, 3.5mm headphone jack or fingerprint scanner on the side of the phone.

The Poco X3 Pro runs on the most recent Android 11 with MIUI 12 for Poco user interface made by Xiaomi.

Poco X3 Pro: Price

As said in the previous article, the Poco X3 Pro will be sold in three different colours – Phantom Black, Frost Blue, and Metal Bronz and 2 configurations: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage for €249 (£214) and 8GB RAM + 256GB (£257) storage for €299.

If the Poco X3 Pro hasn’t changed your mind, you might have a look for its older sibling Poco X3 NFC. There are also occasional discounts on Amazon on both devices.
