Poco India has confirmed that it will be launching a new phone, likely to be the Poco X3 Pro. In a letter posted on Twitter, Poco also hints that the phone will be a successor to the original Poco F1, but makes it clear that this will not be in the F series branding.
The letter also hints at a date of March 30 for the launch of the phone. The number 30 and letter M are written in bold in the letter as is the letter X, the word Pro and the number 21.
Poco also claims in the letter that even in 2021, “not a single phone launched at the price of Poco F1 (Rs 21,000) has been able to match or beat its performance”. It adds that while cost of making and selling a smartphone have gone up since the launch of the F1, they are keen to repeat the earlier performance.
The idea being to offer a high-end performance at a mid-range price, possible starting at Rs 21,000 like the original Poco F1. The teaser message comes a few days after Poco X3 Pro’s storage and colour variants were leaked by 91Mobiles.
The Poco X3 Pro will be available in two configuration variants — 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB, according to the report. The three colour options include blue, black and bronze. Other leaks also suggest that Poco X3 Pro will be a 4G-enabled device with a Full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate. It will pack a 5,020 mAh battery. The charging speed has not been specified yet.
Same madness, only more!
