Poco F3: What to expect
The Poco F3 is widely speculated to be based on the Redmi K40, considering Poco has based its phones on Redmi K-series devices before. The Redmi K40 features a 6.67 inch AMOLED display panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G-enabled chipset.
Under the hood, the device also features up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. There is a triple camera setup on the back of the phone featuring a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro camera. On the front is a 20MP camera.
The device also features stereo speakers, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a 4,520mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. There is also USB Power Delivery 3.0 and Quick Charge 3+ support. We can expect most of these specifications to be a part of the Poco F3 as well.
Poco X3 Pro India launch on March 30
Poco also recently announced a new launch event on March 30 in India. This launch is likely for the Poco X3 Pro. The budget flagship device is expected to feature a Snapdragon 800 series chip along with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage.
An FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate is also expected on the Poco X3 Pro. For the battery, the phone is expected to come with a 5,200mAh battery with fast charging support.
