POCO is holding a Global smartphone launch today and from the looks of it, will be launching two phones. The two smartphones they are launching are the POCO F3 and the POCO X3 Pro. We saw the POCO X3 Pro renders and spec sheet leak yesterday and now we have the POCO F3 renders ahead of launch.
The POCO F3 is the next flagship killer in the POCO F series of smartphones. While the POCO F2 had top-of-line specs, we see a difference in the POCO F3. For starters, the phone will be a rebranded Redmi K40 which launched last month in China. It will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC along with up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS3.1 storage.
From the renders, it seems like the F3 will be launched in three colors. As for other specs, it is speculated to have a triple camera setup on the back with a main 48-megapixel sensor which is assisted with an ultra-wide-lens and a depth sensor. Apart from this, the phone will pack a 6.67-inch E4 AMOLED screen with MEMC, 120Hz refresh rate, and 360Hz touch sampling rate.
There is support for HDR10+ and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and up to 1300nits of peak brightness. It also has a 2.76mm ultra-small punch-hole that houses a 20MP camera. You could also see a pair of stereo speakers with Dolby support, an X-axis linear motor, and a 4,520mAh battery that supports up to 33W wired charging.
