The POCO X3 GT 5G is now official. And it looks like we have another candidate for the most affordable 5G phone, decked with top-end specs.
In the Philippines, you can grab the 8GB + 128GB for Php 15,990, while the 8GB + 256GB can be yours for Php 17,990. Not bad if you ask me. These will be exclusively sold on Lazada.
On August 3 and August 10, the phones will come with an early bird price of Php 14,990 and Php 15,990, respectively.
When I said the phone is decked, I do mean the phone is decked. The POCO X3 GT is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 5G chipset with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.1 storage. The processor has four Cortex A78 cores with speeds up to 2.6GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores up to 2GHz.
The phone has a 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS DotDisplay with 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and a 360-degree ambient light sensor. It has DynamicSwitch functionality, which automatically switches the display’s refresh rate, depending on what the user is doing. The screen also supports DCI-P3 and HDR10, protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
At the back, it has a 64MP main camera with an 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro cameras. While for selfies, a 16MP camera sits on a small punch hole cutout at the top of the screen.
Lastly, the handset has a 5000mAh battery with a blazing 67W fast charging. The retail package also includes a 67W charger.
