Up-to-date processing chips at particularly exciting introductory prices make thePoco F3 and thePoco X3 Pro for a central topic of conversation - and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the launch in Israel is already in the advanced planning stages
All four Poco brand models from home To be accurate (Xiaomi) which have officially landed in Israel over the past two and a half years have gained handsome popularity thanks to surprising prices in relation to value - and this gives us all the reasons we need to appreciate and hope that the company's first pair in 2021 can win a similar refresh very soon.
The Poco X3 Pro is designed to inherit the great Poco X3 NFC that is available in Israel today for less than NIS 900, and like it is the debut for chip Modern intermediate from home Qualcomm - God-Snapdragon 860, which is a remake of theSnapdragon 855 / Snapdragon 855 Plus which were at the forefront of the market in 2019 and continue to deliver highly relevant performance well into 2021, with a healthy lead over most modern mid-range models at the same price level based on initial reviews from across the network.
Except for the intriguing processing chip, the X3 Pro offers an almost identical exterior design to the X3 NFC with the same 6.67-inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, a plastic body weighing 215 grams and 9.4 millimeters thick with IP53 water protection And dust - as well as fast internal UFS 3.1 storage of 128GB or 256GB including the option of additional expansion and 6GB or 8GB of dynamic memory, stereo speakers, system Android 11 with MIUI 12 interface, connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11ac Double Channel, Fingerprint scanner Versatile and 5,160mAh battery with fast 33 watt charging that should bring the battery from zero capacity to full capacity in about one hour.
Quite bizarrely, the Pro's photo array is a step backwards compared toPoco The standard X3 from last year. There are still four rear cameras here, but now the main sensor is a more modest 48-megapixel resolution and smaller physical dimensions and the wide-angle photo sensor is simpler with a maximum 8-megapixel resolution instead of 13-megapixel - and the remaining two sensors with a 2-resolution Megapixels for macro and depth sense.
The Poco F3 is an even more advanced product and the twin of the Redmi K40 to the Chinese market, with a slightly higher price tag - with a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, chip Snapdragon 870 which is a refreshed version for the Snapdragon 865 / Snapdragon 865 Plus, metallic casing with Gorilla Glass 5 cladding front and back, Android 11 system straight out of the box, 3.1GB or 128GB UFS storage (no further expansion option this time) with 256GB or 6GB of Dynamic memory, 8 dual-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, chip Built-in NFC, speakers Stereo and 4,520mAh battery with 33 watt wired charging.
Also the photography set inPoco The F3 stands out as the weak link of the specs - three rear sensors with a 48-inch 1/2-inch main unit, an 8-megapixel wide-angle photo sensor and a 5-megapixel macro sensor, plus a modest 20-megapixel selfie camera 1 / 3.4-inch size inside a tiny 'hole' recess.
