POCO has just announced the launch of the POCO X3 GT, the company's latest mid-range gaming smartphone as reported last week. It is worth noting that the POCO X3 GT is a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 10 Pro that was released earlier this year, and the new smartphone packs MediaTek's Dimensity 1100 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and a 5000mAh battery with 67W fast charging.
POCO X3 GT features a 6.6-inch FHD+ LCD display with 2400×1080 pixel resolution, up to 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, 450 nits peak brightness, 20:9 aspect ratio, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus Protection.
The device is powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 1100 SoC and packs 8GB RAM with 128GB/256GB storage options.
POCO also equipped the smartphone with 16370mm² VC liquid cooling for long-lasting performance, and graphite, thermally conductive gel with copper foil, so the whole body is covered for the best heat dissipation.
In a press statement, the head of POCO Global, Kevin Qiu said;
We're excited to continue delivering on our customers' expectations with POCO X3 GT, a true powerhouse capable of the demanding mobile gaming and flagship entertainment experience.
On its rear, the POCO X3 GT features a triple-camera setup that includes a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro camera. On its front, it packs a 16MP selfie camera in a centrally aligned punch-hole notch.
The smartphone runs on Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 for POCO and packs a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. In terms of connectivity, it offers 5G SA/NSA, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 6 802.11 ax, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS/GLONASS, USB Type-C, and NFC 3.0.
POCO X3 GT packs a 5,000mAh battery that supports 67W fast charging which POCO claims will take the battery from 0% to 100% in just 42 minutes.
