- Performance is great but the cameras might disappoint some buyers
- You can buy it with 6GB or 8GB of RAM but 128GB of storage is common
- The Poco X3 Pro is IP53 “splash-proof”
Poco X3 Pro price in India starts at Rs. 18,999
Billed as the true successor to the iconic Poco F1, the new Poco X3 Pro has some big shoes to fill. Not everyone wants all the latest fancy features – some buyers with tight budgets like having choices when it comes to phones that prioritise the cameras, battery life, or even gaming performance. The Poco F1 was all about its high-end processor and made no apologies about lagging in other departments. With a new focus on the youth market, Poco has chosen a slightly different approach for the X3 Pro. Interestingly, parent company Xiaomi has also recently launched the Mi 11X (Review) in India, which in other markets is known as the Poco F3 and is a closer match to the F1 in terms of price. Which of these phones should you choose? We’ve got the answers.https://www.youtube.com/embed/iXlbWtn9_Ec?rel=0&showinfo=0
Poco X3 Pro price in India
The Poco X3 Pro has been launched starting at Rs. 18,999 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you want 8GB of RAM, there’s another variant priced at Rs. 20,999, but storage remains unchanged. If you consider yourself a power user and expect to use this phone heavily for several years, you might notice the difference between 6GB and 8GB of RAM. There are three colour options: Graphite Black, Steel Blue, and Golden Bronze.
In terms of positioning, the Poco X3 costs less than the Poco F1 (Review) did at launch time, although that model received several price cuts and was often discounted on sale. It will compete with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max (Review), Realme X7 5G (Review), Moto G60 (Review), and several other popular recent models.
