There are two GT phones coming from Xiaomi later this month – the Poco F3 GT will launch in India on July 23 and today we learn that the Poco X3 GT will be unveiled in Malaysia on July 28. Official Facebook page at 20:00 local time.
This has not been officially confirmed, but what we know so far suggests that the X3 GT will be the global name for the Chinese Redmi Note 10 Pro). This shouldn’t be confused with the Indian or overall Note 10 Pro (though it’s already more than a bit confusing).
The unveiling of the Poco X3 GT will be broadcast live on YouTube on July 28
The Chinese version has a 6.6-inch LC at 120 Hz with support for Gorilla Glass Victus and HDR10. It is powered by the Dimensity 1100 chipset with faster UFS 3.1 storage, but no microSD card slot. The camera configurations are identical, 64+8+2 MP on the back, 16 MP on the front. Stereo speakers are present on all three models, but the Chinese loses the 3.5mm jack. It should have NFC, though. The battery capacity is essentially the same at 5,000 mAh, although charging is much faster at 67 W (100% charge in 42 minutes). Here’s a one-on-one comparison.
The Poco F3 GT is also based on a Redmi model, the K40 Gaming Edition, in particular. With a 120Hz OLED display and a Dimensity 1200 chipset, it should be the more expensive of the two. The Poco F3 (S870 chipset, but 33W slower charge) currently sells for around €300 (MSRP is €350), so expect the F3 GT model to cost about the same and the X3 GT a little less than that.
