The Poco X3 Pro is all but confirmed to launch in India on March 30.
Xiaomi spin-off brand Poco launched the Poco X3 Pro 4G and Poco F3 5G mid-premium flagship phones for global markets on Monday. Of the two, the Poco X3 Pro is all but confirmed to launch in India on March 30. Whether or not Poco will also launch the Poco F3 in India on the same day isn’t clear at this point of time.
The Poco X3 Pro is a follow up to the Poco X3 NFC-Poco sells the non-NFC Poco X3 in India. The Poco F3 is meanwhile a follow up to the Poco F2 Pro, that sadly never came to India. To be clear, even though the Poco F3 and Poco F2 Pro are part of Poco’s F series, they are by no means successors to the popular Poco F1. Just like the Poco F2 Pro, the Poco F3 is also a rebranded Redmi phone-the Redmi K40 to be precise.
The Poco F3 starts at Euros 349 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage going up to Euros 399 for the model with 8GB RAM and256GB storage. For a limited period, Poco will sell the phone at an early bird pricing of Euros 299 and Euros 349 respectively.
