Little has been talking about its competitor OnePlus Nord for some time. It has even released some teasers for the next device, which is confirmed to be the Poco X3. While Poco might be gearing up to announce an official release date, Poco X3 renders and specs have been leaked online today.
First reported by MIUI Turkiye (via Ishan Agarwal) in a now-deleted blog post, Poco X3 will be released on September 8. It will be a successor to the Poco X2, which made its debut in India earlier this year. What updates will Poco X3 bring over its predecessor?
First of all, it seems like the Poco X3 will not just be a rebranded Redmi phone like all the Poco phones recently launched. It will have a new design (inspired by the Poco M2 Pro) with a huge camera bulge at the top and a huge “Poco” marking at the bottom of the rear. You’ll also find a center-hole display on the front and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
A supposed spec sheet for the Poco X3 accompanies the official-looking renders. It will be a mid-range device powered by an unannounced Snapdragon 732 chipset. It would offer a minor performance increase over the Snapdragon 730G onboard its predecessor. RAM and storage options are not mentioned in the leak.
Poco X3 will include a 6.67-inch Full-HD + LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, just like the Poco X2. However, the dual camera punch-hole will be replaced by a single center punch hole with a 20MP selfie snapper. The leak further suggests that the device will include a 64MP primary sensor in the massive four-camera array on the rear.
Finally, the device is expected to house a massive 5,160 mAh battery (according to a recent report) and 33 W fast charging support. You also get the same charging speeds with the Poco M2 Pro. Since the Poco X2 hit the jackpot in India, his successor will surely make his debut in the country. There is currently no official information on the India launch and pricing details. So stay tuned for more updates.
Poco X3 is the true OnePlus Nord competitor the company was talking about? It is highly unlikely as this sounds like sub-Rs. 20,000 mid-range phones. I guess we will have to wait for the official launch to learn more about this smartphone.
