POCO X3 GT specifications
The POCO X3 GT packs a 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution. The panel has a 120 Hz refresh rate and a center-aligned punch-hole for the 16 MP selfie snapper. Under the hood, the smartphone carries a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 SoC. This chipset carries the same pedigree as the Dimensity 1200, but with just a little fewer steroids. It comprises four ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.6 GHz and four efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. It will pack 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage.
In terms of optics, the handset sports a triple-camera setup. It brings a 64 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2 MP macro lens. The device draws powers from a 5,000 mAh battery with 67 W fast charging. It runs Android 11 straight out of the box, and hopefully, will have MIUI 12.5 instead of 12.
The device should be available in Black, Green, and White colorways. The device will carry the same design as the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G. The biggest difference will be the POCO branding at the back.
The X3 GT will join the X3 lineup and also the GT lineup alongside the POCO F3 GT. Curiously, the recently released smartphone is also based on a Redmi device, the Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition.
