Earlier this month, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco launched its much-awaited Poco X3 NFC smartphone in the European market. The device joins the 120Hz refresh rate panel bandwagon and packs in a massive battery as well. Well, the smartphone has now been confirmed for the Indian market. Poco India today announced the launch event for the device on its official Twitter account.
As per the tweet, Poco X3 NFC will see its official unveiling in the Indian market on September 22 which is next week. The brand is teasing the smooth user experience with its #SmoothAF hashtag. As expected, the device will be available exclusively on the Flipkart e-commerce platform. In fact, the product page on Flipkart is already live which mentions the Snapdragon 732G chipset.

A new model of Poco X3 NFC has now surfaced on the Google Play Console listing with the codename “karna”. Surprisingly, the new listing lacks the NFC from the moniker and also seems to be a slightly upgraded version. As per the listing, the Indian variant of Poco X3 will arrive with a Snapdragon 730 chipset paired with 8GB RAM along with Android 10 OS. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels with 440PPI pixel density.
It is worth noting that the device will indeed arrive with Snapdragon 732G and the software might have got it confused since the 732G is the overclocked version of the 730. It is also worth noting that the currently available version of Poco X3 NFC comes with only 6GB RAM. Furthermore, it looks like the company is planning to launch an 8GB RAM configuration as well for Indian consumers.
Coming to the battery, previous leaks have claimed a slightly larger capacity than the 5,160mAh for the Indian market. Apart from this, the remaining specs should be the same. To recall, the device includes a 6.7-inch IPS LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate panel with a 20MP front selfie camera.
Indian pricing is already leaked!
While the official unveiling is set for next week, we already have the Indian pricing information on the smartphone. According to previous leaks, the Indian Poco X3 will fall somewhere between the INR 19,000 ($258) to INR 20,000 ($272) range. If that’s the case, then the pricing will fall in line with the predecessor i.e. Poco X2.
