Xiaomi POCO X3 NFC price, specs, and availability via Revu Philippines

POCO X3 NFC to go on sale again, this time on Lazada PH

In Phones by Ramon Lopez1 Comment

If you missed out on the previous POCO X3 NFC “early bird” deals at Xiaomi‘s brand store on Shopee Philippines, you might want to wait a little longer to purchase the phone at a lower price tag.

On September 19, the Xiaomi Mall on Lazada will be offering the POCO X3 NFC at the same prices it launched with at 11 p.m. September 8th. You’ll be able to pick up the base variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for P9,990 (about $206 converted) instead of the usual P10,990 ($227), while the 128GB storage model will drop to P11,990 ($248) from P12,990 ($268).

Though if you can get a little longer, there’s another POCO X3 NFC flash sale happening on Lazada Philippines — and it’s at the Xiaomi official store this time. Same discounted prices, different date and storefront. We saw the promotion on POCO’s official Facebook page.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi’s official brand store on Lazada won’t bundle this POCO with an active-cooler accessory, but at least you’ll be able to save a bit of cash on an already inexpensive phone with lots to offer.

The POCO X3 NFC is one of the cheapest devices on the market with a 120Hz screen, which should make for a smooth experience when scrolling through menus and navigating apps. It’s also the first to arrive with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 732G chipset, while the battery backup is rated for all-day usage with a 5,160mAh cell.

At this point, it feels like buying the POCO X3 NFC at a non-discounted price is actually a bad decision. Sure, you’ll get a good-specced device out of it, but there will always be the “what if” feeling and worry that perhaps a better deal exists elsewhere. And although buyer’s remorse can apply to every corner of the retail industry, POCO’s regular flash sales might be more disingenuous than helpful.
