POCO X3 NFC Features
The POCO X3 NFC is running on Qualcomm’s most powerful 4G processor to date, which offers sustained peak performance and AI capabilities that will impress even the most demanding gamers thanks to its architecture based on the Kryo TM 470 octa-core CPU and Adreno™ 618 Elite Gaming series GPU.
To ensure steady operation and frictionless user experience, the device embeds LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus, combining an enlarged copper heat pipe with multiple layers of graphite that work together to reduce the heat of the phone’s processor. The device’s performance can then be further optimised for gaming thanks to the latest iteration of Game Turbo 3.0, the utility that tunes the phone in accordance with game requirements, that ensures users get the most out of the handset’s powerful hardware. Additionally, the phone’s Z-axis linear motor ensures superb haptic feedback with over 150 vibration modes for different scenarios.
In line with POCO’s original goal of making innovation available to everyone, POCO X3 NFC sports a stunning edge-to-edge 6.67” FHD+ DotDisplay with a staggering combination of a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The device also packs a pair of flagship-grade stereo speakers that provides an immersive crystal clear stereo sound and an absorbing gaming experience. Meanwhile, the speakers’ ability to self-clean ensures unmuffled audio in the long run.
POCO X3 NFC sports a top-notch rear quad-camera system consisting of a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, the device sports a tiny dot 20MP camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel, ideal for taking unblemished selfies.
As it’s being touted as the ideal gaming smartphone, it’s going to need a lot of battery and the POCO X3 NFC delivers. Packed with a large 5,160mAh(typ) battery, the device can last over two days under moderate usage. The handset supports 33W fast charging which not only means that the device can be charged to 100% in only 65 minutes, but also that a mere 30 minutes will fill it up to 62%!
