Today, as scheduled, Xiaomi’s sub-brand launched two new phones – POCO F3 and POCO X3 Pro – in Europe. However, if looking at them, we can see they are not anything new. The POCO F3 is the rebranded version of the Redmi K40. The discount is 50 euros for a limited time, and the discounted price tags vary from 199 euros to 349 euros. Anyways, we can’t say the same about the POCO X3 Pro. So let’s get acquainted with their features starting from the latter.
POCO X3 Pro
The POCO X3 Pro comes with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 SoC (4G). However, this chip is not anything new as well. It is just the overclocked version of the Snapdragon 855 Plus. Apart from this, there is also a 6.7-inch FHD 120Hz LCD screen, which also comes with a touch frequency of 240Hz and a brightness of 450 nits. The rear of the phone carries a 48MP quad-camera, while under the hood, we can find a 5160mAh battery. The latter supports 33W fast charge. The 6+128GB variant costs 249 euros and the price of the 8+256GB model is 299 euros.
In fact, we can say that the Pro version has many features in common with the standard POCO X3. But the chip inside is replaced with a new SND860. We would also focus on the camera part. There is a 20MP f/2.2 camera front shooter, which is ideal for selfies. And the rear camera besides the 48MP main sensor also includes an f/1.8 lens and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with a 119-degree FoV.
The POCO X3 Pro will ship with MIUI 12 for Poco interface, based on Android 11. There are a few color variants to choose from – Phantom Black, Frost Blue, and Metal Bronze.
The POCO F3 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip. The handset also carries a 6.67-inch FHD 120Hz AMOLED micro-hole-punch screen, a built-in 4520mAh battery, which supports 33W fast charging, three rear cameras, and side fingerprint recognition module. The rear camera consists of a 48MP main shooter and 8MP ultra-wide camera. This phone also has an X-axis vibration motor and Dolby Atmos-tuned dual speakers.
The price tags are 349 euros and 399 euros for the 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB models.
