POCO will launch two new GT devices this month, with both being rebranded Redmi devices that were launched earlier this year for the Chinese market.
(Update, July 28: Incredible prices yet again! See how much the POCO X3 GT is plus its specs and availability here.)
(Update, July 22: Confirmed: The POCO X3 GT is also launching in the Philippines. Look.)
In addition to the POCO F3 GT, a rebadged Redmi K40 Gaming Edition that will debut in India on July 23, the Xiaomi sub-brand will announce the POCO X3 GT a few days later in Malaysia and Singapore on July 28.
No Philippines… yet?
And though it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it is believed that the POCO X3 GT will be similar to China’s Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G (not to be confused with the Redmi Note 10 Pro variant that was released in other markets), which is powered by a 5G-capable MediaTek Dimensity 1100 chipset.
The Dimensity 1100 SoC is built on a 6nm process and features a Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. It also packs up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. MediaTek’s top-end chip, which shares many specs with the Dimensity 1200, can be found inside the Realme Q3 Pro, Vivo S9, and Vivo X60t as well.
If the leaks are accurate, expect the POCO X3 GT to feature a 6.6-inch IPS LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate and a coating of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on top for flagship-grade protection against bumps and drops.
The main camera will reportedly pair a 64-megapixel sensor with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide shooter and a 2-megapixel macro snapper, while the front-facing camera for selfies is 16 megapixels. It may also sport a 5,000mAh battery that supports fast charging up to 67 watts and likely runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11 out of the box.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G starts at ¥1,499 (around P11,842 or $231) in China for the base 6GB/128GB storage model, so expect the POCO X3 GT to retail at around that price when it launches.
