A few weeks after its brother Poco X3 Pro, the senior model of the emerging Chinese brand from Shiomi is also available with a generous amount of processing power and storage In relation to the price - but also one and only one shade without a choice for consumers
Another power for less than NIS 2,000: After getting a chance to be impressed by what the fresh Poco X3 Pro brings to the table, now it's the Poco F3's turn to take some of the spotlight on itself in the local market - as the heir, roughly but not exactly, For the Poco F2 Pro which gained great popularity in the country in the second half of last year as one of the modelsSnapdragon 865 most accessible.
The new generation is similar but different from its predecessor because it does not make use of the newest and most senior flagship chip of Qualcomm, But in one degree below it - theSnapdragon 870, which is actually a slightly improved version for him Snapdragon 865 we encountered in the previous generation, with an increased maximum speed of 3.2GHz for the senior processing core in the octagonal array (compared to a maximum speed of up to 2.84GHz "only" in the 2020 version of the chip).
The Poco F3 is not supposed to deliver a meteoric leap in performance compared to the Poco F2 Pro, then, but still enjoys some important improvements in other elements of its specs to our delight - with a much brighter 6.67-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels And with a high refresh rate of up to 120 Hz plus a 360 Hz touch-sensing system Android 11 with MIUI interface 12 above it, speakers Stereo, 4,520mAh battery with 33 watt wired charging that should bring the capacity from zero to 52 in XNUMX minutes and a shell (plastic covered with glass Gorilla Glass Front and rear) with support for IP53 standard for basic water protection and dust protection.
The Poco F3 features a fairly simple triangular main array with a main 48-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle photo sensor and a 5-megapixel macro sensor, combined with a 20-megapixel selfie camera inside a front 'hole' recess Which replaces the motorized camera in the previous incarnation (remember there was such a trend?), Built-in side-by-side fingerprint scanner, 6-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, chip Built-in NFC, infrared transmitter, receiver GPS Dual channels for improved accuracy and more - and all of these can be found in a black finish only at this point, although official PR photos also proudly feature white and blue finishes.
So how much will all this pleasure cost Israelis? Local representative Hamilton has started offering the Poco F3 in its online store with a 24-month warranty and free shipping for NIS 1,750 for the base model that includes 128GB of fast internal UFS 3.1 storage and 6GB of RAM - and for NIS 1,900 for an apparently more advanced and lucrative model, with 256GB of storage Fast internal (in both cases no expansion is possible) and 8 GB of memory Dynamic.
These prices are several hundred shekels higher than the recommended prices of the F3 announced for European countries, but do not reflect the initial flash sales at a cut of 50 euros in the price of each of the models that took place in some countries - so we have to wait patiently to find out These pricing will be able to reach lower thanks to the various parallel importers who will no doubt be interested in the product.
