Poco’s open letter read: “When we speak of coming out with a device like the F1 today, a device that’s all about performance, we are told: “That’s impossible now! Are you mad?” And to that we say: “Exactly!” Which is why this saga could be repeated. Should be repeated. After all, “only a Poco can beat a Poco!” The only difference being it’ll not be an F by name but by game!”
Poco X3 Pro expected specifications
Poco X3 Pro could feature a Full HD+ display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is expected to be powered by the yet-unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor which seems like a follow-up to the Snapdragon 855 series of chipsets.
Qualcomm is yet to officially announce the Snapdragon 860 as it recently launched the Snapdragon 870 processor. The latter succeeds the Snapdragon 865 series processors from last year and will power many mid-premium smartphones in 2021.
The Poco X3 Pro is expected to be equipped with a 5,200mAh battery that will support fast-charging out-of-the-box.
There have been reports claiming that the Poco X3 Pro could be priced starting at EUR 250 for the 6GB+128GB storage and EUR 300 for the 8GB+256GB storage option.
We expect to know more about the Poco X3 Pro in the weeks leading up to the launch which is scheduled for March 30.
