Just like the OnePlus with the Nord 2 - also the new advanced mid-range device from the creator of Xiaomi Prioritizes the latest products from the Far East chip developer over those of Western competitor Qualcomm
The honor of Qualcomm Snapdragon chips is in place, but it seems that in recent times you can meet more and more advanced intermediate models Which are based on the chips from Mediatek's Dimensity series, And in particular the new Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200 models that offer a lot of impressive results in performance tests for their typical price tags.
The Poco F3 GT is another new example of this - as an alternative For the original Poco F3 introduced a few months ago with a Snapdragon 870 chip, Which is actually an improved version of theSnapdragon 865 Plus which was the most advanced choice in the environment until the end of 2020. The octagonal Dimensity 1200 inside the F3 GT is about half a step behind theSnapdragon 870 in most common performance tests, but the differences between them are small enough to justify such a head-to-head comparison, especially when the price is appropriate and there are other interesting additions that atone for it.
The Poco F3 GT offers a 6.67-inch OLED screen with support for an extended 10-bit color display, a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels and a high average brightness of 500 nits, in a casing with Gorilla Glass 5 cladding both front and back At the back you enjoy, among other things, basic IP53 protection from water and dust, fast internal UFS 3.1 storage of 128GB or 256GB plus 6GB or 8GB of dynamic memory, system Android 11 with MIUI interface 12.5 above it, speakers Stereo, connectivity Wi-Fi 6 dual channels, connectivity Bluetooth 5.1 wireless, built-in infrared transmitter, Fingerprint scanner Built-in versatile 5,065mAh battery with an impressive 67 watt wired charge that should return full capacity in 42 minutes or less.
The photography system is the weak link in the chain of technical capabilities of thePoco F3 GT, it seems, similar to what we also saw inPoco Original F3 - Here you will find a relatively small 64/1 inch main 2-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle photo sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor, along with a 16-megapixel selfie camera in a 'hole' type Already the default recognized in almost all price levels in the field. However, there is a feature that will try to make you forget about commercializing quality sensors and focus on gaming - a pair of buttons on the side of the device with magnetic mechanisms (or Maglev, as they are called in Shiomi as a marketing act) designed to keep your fingers away from the screen.
The Poco F3 GT smartphone will be offered, in black or gray, in the Indian market first - with an official starting price of 26,000 rupees for a base model with 128GB of storage And 6GB of dynamic memory for agile buyers who will snatch it up as early as next week, and an early price of 30,000 rupees for the senior model with 256GB of storage And 8GB of memory Dynamic. Prices range from $ 350 to $ 403, respectively, which translates to NIS 1,150 to NIS 1,320 before tax surcharges and before they reach their original recommended value of 1,000 rupees or an additional $ 13.5 for each model.
In other words - it can certainly be estimated that the European price, with local tax included, for the F3 GT models will be Very similar to the European price for the Poco F3 in the Snapdragon edition, With a cost of 350 euros, which was translated into 1,750 shekels as part of the official launch in Israel.
