Those are especially attractive prices for what the X3 brings to the table, including an LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 240Hz touch-sampling rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for added protection against bumps and drops. Not to mention, the battery is rated at 5,160mAh for longer usage and supports 33-watt fast charging out of the box.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G is a gaming-focused chipset for midrange devices, sporting a performance Kryo 470 Prime that runs at up to 2.3GHz and an overclocked Adreno 618 GPU that delivers up to 15% better performance compared to the previous generation. According to Xiaomi, the POCO X3 can reach north of 300,000 in Antutu Benchmark, which basically crushes the results of most other mobile devices at this price point.
