POCO has been rebranding smartphones in the past after the POCO F1, with the POCO X2 basically being a rebranded Redmi K30 from China. However, POCO has stepped up the game and the POCO X3 is a completely different smartphone. Today, POCO has started to roll out the first update for the POCO X3 carrying build number MIUI V126.96.36.199.QJGINXM weighing at 80MB in size.
POCO X3: First Update Improves Security and Optimizes System Performance [Changelog]
- Improved system security and stability
- Optimized System performance
While the changelog doesn’t mention much about the update, it improves the system stability, brings bug fixes while optimizing the overall performance of the machine. As usual, users should ensure that they back up their data before attempting the download. Also, this update will not arrive on all units at the same time. Thus, if you have not gotten this update, just exercise some patience. Alternatively, you can go to settings to check for available updates manually.
POCO X3 INDIA VARIANT SPECIFICATIONS
Talking about the POCO X3, it comes with a huge 6.67-inch IPS LCD. The display rocks a resolution of FHD+ and to make the experience buttery smooth, the company has opted for a 120Hz refresh rate. Moreover, there is a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz and HDR10 support. The display seems a perfect fit for the gamers out there.
Coming to the cameras, it is a pretty familiar quad camera setup. It sports a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 main lens, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, a 2-megapixel depth, and lastly a 2-megapixel macro lens. It is a pretty common setup in this price tag and resembles the one on the Realme 7 series. I won’t say the setup is bad, but yes nothing special on the camera segment. For selfies, the company has opted for a 20-megapixel shooter resting in a dot hole notch.
What makes POCO X3 special? Well, its a second original phone from POCO. And the chipset! The POCO X3 is the world’s first smartphone with Snapdragon 732G. The chipset is one of the strongest in the mid-range market. To make things running smoothly, we also have LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.1 storage.
And what is the change in the Indian version of POCO X3? Well, it has a bigger battery. The global POCO X3 comes with a 5160mAH battery. While the X3 Indian version has a huge 6000mAH battery with the same 33W charging. This is an answer to the Galaxy M series which is quite popular there. On the software side, we are getting MIUI 12 out of the box based on Android 10 OS. So you will still have to wait for the Android 11 based update.
