A second new smartphone in the Poco family was unveiled to us that week - with potential to deliver storage Impressively fast 256GB for less than 1,000 shekels, just like its brother
Xiaomi reminds us again that the word 'rest' is completely foreign to it, with the close launch of two new Poco models a few days apart - both based on the fresh Dimensity chips of Mediatek Which give a serious leap in performance compared to previous chips in the same brand.
Having detailed to you the relative strengths and weaknesses In the Poco F3 GT, It's time to focus on the Poco X3 GT which will be even cheaper, similar to the relationships and differences that are already familiar to us between the Poco F3 and the Poco X3 Pro which enjoy great popularity here in the country as well. In the Poco X3 GT you will find a 6.6-inch IPS screen with a well-known 2,400 × 1,080 pixels resolution, a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and a luxurious Gorilla Glass Victus overlay, Android 11 system with MIUI 12.5 interface above it, fast UFS 3.1 storage of 128GB or 256GB along with 8GB of dynamic memory, stereo speakers, 6 dual-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, chip Built-in NFC, infrared transmitter, built-in fingerprint scanner with side button and 5,000mAh battery with charging support USB-PD 3.0 of up to 67 watts that will transfer the capacity from absolute zero to 100 percent in 42 minutes.
All of these features are enabled through chip Mediatek's octagonal Dimension 1100, based on an efficient 6-nanometer manufacturing process and offering slightly or even better performance than those of chip God-Snapdragon 860, which was responsible for operating the Poco X3 Pro model that came to us in less than half a year - and in any case significantly better performance than the Poco X3 NFC Which was introduced a little less than a year ago and started the way of the entire X3 series.
The X3 GT's photography array does not include particularly innovative lines, with a 64/1 inch main 2-megapixel sensor, an additional 8-megapixel sensor for wide-angle photography and a basic 2-megapixel 16-megapixel sensor, plus a XNUMX-inch selfie camera Megapixel - when you can also indicate the lack of support for cards microSD By extension, the lack of connection to headphones and the disappearance of the built-in radio receiver as relative disadvantages of the model, even in relation to its predecessors.
Now, let's move on to the good news: the Poco X3 GT will be offered in black, white or blue (decorated with vertical stripes) with a starting price of $ 300 for 128GB with 8GB of dynamic memory, and an even more exciting recommended price of $ 330 for the improved model with 256GB of storage And 8GB of memory Dynamic.
Taxes need to be added to this price, as you probably already know - but still there is still potential for only a second smartphone in our local market that will be offered (in the end) at a price lower than 1,000 shekels with 256GB of storage Available, similar toPoco The X3 Pro in question was the first to do so thanks to competition between parallel importers.
Now, it seems that we only have to wait a little longer until the official launch of this model in Israel reveals to us - whether it is more expensive than the X3 Pro, cheaper than it or priced at exactly the same levels.
