After making its F2 Pro flagship killer official last May, Xiaomi sub-brand POCO is set to launch its fourth new phone for 2020 with the POCO X3. Unlike with the POCO X2, F2 Pro and M2 Pro, which are rebranded versions of the Redmi K30, Redmi K30 Pro, and Redmi Note 9S respectively, the POCO X3 is the brand’s first all-original phone.
The launch date poster confirms that it will have NFC, and Xiaomi confirmed that the POCO X3 will be the first phone to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 732G—essentially a Snapdragon 730G with higher clock speeds.
Aside from a Snapdragon 732G processor, previous leaks reveal at least 6GB RAM, Android 10 out of the box, and a new design with bold POCO branding, a dual-texture panel, and a circular camera module with four cameras arranged in a horizontal position.
Other confirmed details include a 64-megapixel main rear camera (possibly an IMX682 sensor), and a charging speed of 0 to 100% in 65 minutes, which points to the possibility of 33w wired charging.
POCO is expected to reveal more about the X3 Pro come September 7.
