The Poco F3 GT is launching on July 23 but ahead of the release, we have more information on it. Rumours have long claimed it to be a renamed Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition and Poco has now confirmed it indirectly. Based on a recent teaser on Flipkart, this Poco F3 GT carries the same design theme as the Redmi version, complete with the LED light inserts.

The Poco F3 GT appears to have a similarly designed rear as the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. The only change Poco makes here is replacing the “Fighting” and “Redmi” badges with the Poco logo. Rest everything appears to be unchanged, including the aggressive lines imitating a circuit. It also carries over the slider keys for the pop-up shoulder triggers.

Poco is going to use a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset with dual-channel UFS 3.1 storage and support for 5G networks. The rear camera setup is also going to be the same as Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. Hence, you are getting the 64-megapixel main camera that’s accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. These cameras are surrounded by LED ring lights.
Poco also confirms the 5065mAh capacity battery on this phone but weirdly hasn’t said anything about the charging solution. The Redmi version gets the 67W wired solution and it remains to be seen whether Poco goes for a slower system to keep the costs in check.
In another report, a tipster got hold of the expected prices for the Poco F3 GT. As mentioned by 91Mobiles, tipster Debayan Roy (Gadgets Data) says that the base version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage could start from Rs 28,999. The top-end version with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage could cost Rs 31,999. The prices could fluctuate by Rs 1,000.
Do note that this does not come from a reliable source and hence, we suggest you take these with a pinch of salt.
