POCO Global has officially announced the POCO X3 Pro. It is an all-new phone and a successor to POCO X3 NFC. Last year, POCO X3 NFC was introduced and it became very popular thanks to the features like 120Hz refresh rate display, Snapdragon 732G, and more. And today with the POCO X3 Pro, the company has improved the performance even more. Let’s check out the POCO X3 Pro in detail below.
First of all, the POCO X3 Pro comes with an all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 860. It is a 7nm-based chipset and it sits between the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ and 860 processors. The chipset uses the Adreno 640 GPU. According to the company, POCO X3 Pro was able to get an average of 50 frames per second in Genshin Impact on high settings. It is quite good considering Genshin Impact is a graphics intense game. The phone also has a faster UFS 3.1 storage and up to 8GB RAM, unlike POCO X3 NFC which was limited to 6GB RAM. The phone also has an expandable storage option of up to 1TB. The phone has a 5160mAH battery with 33W fast charging.
