Xiaomi has unveiled the POCO X3 Pro, a higher-end version of the POCO X3, and the POCO X3 today. The cameras and LED on the Poco X3 Pro are arranged in an X formation, just like on the regular Poco X3. The new chipset, which is said to be a slightly improved version of the 7nm Snapdragon 855+ processor with the same octa-core CPU and Adreno 640 GPU, is the most substantial difference.
A 6.67” LCD with Full HD+ resolution and a single punch hole in the center for the 20 MP f/2.2 camera can be found on the front. The panel has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz. You’ll also find “studio-quality” dual speakers, according to the company.
It’ll be protected by Gorilla Glass 6, which means it’ll be scratch and drop resistant. You’ll get UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR4X RAM for speed, as well as a 5,160 mAh battery with 33W fast charging to keep everything running smoothly.
The camera setup on the Poco X3 Pro isn’t quite as good as it was on the Poco X3. The phone features a 48MP primary sensor with a 1/2” sensor and an f/1.8 lens, as well as an 8MP ultra-wide snapper with a 119-degree visual field. There are two 2 MP sensors for macro shots and depth sensing, but we all know how insignificant they are.
The battery capacity of the Poco X3 Pro matches that of the X3 NFC, rather than the 6,000mAh capacity of the non-NFC variant. Poco calls this LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus, which features an expanded copper heat pipe and various layers of graphite to effectively dissipate heat.
