Roughly six months after launching the X3 NFC, POCO is finally making its higher-end sibling official with the X3 Pro. Headline features of the POCO X3 Pro include a Snapdragon 860 processor, UFS 3.1 storage, and a price that is meant to disrupt the whole competition.
POCO X3 Pro Specs:
- Snapdragon 860 processor
- 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM
- 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage
- 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS display, 120hz refresh rate, 240hz touch sampling rate
- 48-megapixel f/1.79 main camera with PDAF, 8-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera, 2-megapixel f/2.4 macro camera, 2-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor
- 20-megapixel selfie camera
- WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5, side-mounted fingerprint scanner
- IP53 rating, stereo speakers, NFC
- 5160mAh battery
- 33w fast charging
- Android 11, MIUI 12
As a midrange killer offering, the Snapdragon 860 serves as an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 855 and 855+ from 2018, offering a 2.96Ghz clock speed with its Kryo 485 cores, along with an Adreno 640 GPU. As a compromise, the Snapdragon 860 does not have a 5G modem–which explains why the POCO X3 Pro only has 4G/LTE connectivity. To keep temps stable, the POCO X3 Pro gets a D5 copper heat pipe and multi-layer graphite for heat dissipation.
Like the vanilla model, the Pro model also gets a 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a 120hz refresh rate and a punch-hole for the 20-megapixel selfie snapper. You also get the same 5160mAh battery with 33w wired charging, stereo speakers, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and NFC. You also get Android 11-based MIUI 12 out of the box.
For the rear cameras, you have practically the same setup as the vanilla model, though the Pro swaps the 64-megapixel main camera for a 48-megapixel snapper.
