POCO X3 GT launched: Fast chip, fast screen, fast charging
- POCO has launched the POCO X3 GT in several markets.
- The phone is essentially a rebranded Chinese Redmi Note 10 Pro.
- Expect to pay a starting price of $299.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 10 Pro globally earlier this year, but the Chinese version is actually a totally different device. Now, the Chinese variant has arrived in wider markets, albeit with a name change.
The device is known as the POCO X3 GT and also swaps out the standard MIUI skin in favor of the MIUI for POCO skin. Otherwise, this is the same device as the Chinese Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Poco’s phone is equipped with a Dimensity 1100 5G chipset (4x Cortex-A78, 4x Cortex-A55, Mali-G77 MP9 GPU), 8GB of RAM, and 128GB to 256GB of expandable storage. You’re also getting a 5,000mAh battery with 67W wired charging via an in-box charger. The 67W speed means you can expect a full top-up in 42 minutes, according to the brand.
Poco’s device is also equipped with a 6.6-inch 120Hz FHD+ LCD screen with Gorilla Glass Victus, a triple rear camera system (64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro), and a 16MP selfie snapper.
Other notable specs include Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, 5G+5G dual-SIM, an IR blaster, NFC, dual speakers, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The POCO X3 GT will be available in Africa, Latin America, South East Asia, and the Middle East. Pricing starts at $299 for the 8GB/128GB model via “official e-commerce channels,” while the 8GB/256GB variant will set you back $329.
Either way, the combination of a relatively powerful chipset, 5G, a 120Hz screen with Gorilla Glass Victus, and 67W charging seems pretty good for the price. So anyone thinking about a solid mid-range phone might want to put this on their list of devices to keep in mind.
