After weeks of leaks and rumors, Poco has officially announced the arrival of a new Poco device — POCO X3 NFC. The device is a successor to the Poco X2 that was launched in February.
In a tweet, Poco has said that the device will be unveiled on September 7th at an online event; its live stream will begin at 20:00 (GMT+8).
A few specifications of Poco X3 are still a mystery, but there are no doubts that the device will be a performance champ. Qualcomm has said that Poco X3 will be the first device to come with Snapdragon 732G.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G is a gaming-focused chipset that offers an improved GPU and CPU over the Snapdragon 730. Qualcomm claims the chip can deliver Adreno 618 GPU, which will be a boost in graphic rendering. The chip supports Bluetooth 5 and is ready for WiFi 6.
At the chipset announcement, Sam Jiang, Poco Global head, said, “We are extremely excited about the upcoming POCO smartphone and our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies that allowed us to create the first device on the market with the latest Snapdragon 732G Mobile Platform.”
Other rumored POCO X3 NFC specifications are a 6.67-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 5,160mAh battery, and 33W fast charging. Users speculate that the device will have an AMOLED panel.
Poco Global product marketing manager Angus Kai Ho Ng said the device would have a 64 primary lens. It will most probably be a quad camera setup. In his tweet, he also shared a few shots taken from the Poco X3. He also confirmed fast charging support in another tweet and said the device could be fully charged in about 65 minutes.
We will likely hear more about the upcoming Poco device before the official launch on September 7th.
