However, Poco has directed its efforts towards the higher tier models this year. The Poco M3 Pro 5G marked Poco’s entry into the affordable 5G smartphone space under Rs 15,000. In the sub-Rs 30,000 space, it is the Poco F3 GT that has the duty of bringing back Poco to the forefront of the flagship killer segment it started its journey with.
The Poco F3 GT is currently the most affordable gaming-spec smartphone you can buy this year. With a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 at the helm and dedicated shoulder triggers on the sides, you have basically got a cut-price ROG Phone 3. A massive 5000mAh battery accompanied by a 67W fast charging solution makes the Poco F3 GT the right choice for most mobile gamers on a budget.
Poco also announced the Poco X3 GT globally as another of its midrange offering with a Dimensity 1100 chipset. However, this phone isn’t coming to India and buyers u the sub-Rs 20,000 space will have to make do with the Poco X3 Pro, which offers a Snapdragon 860 chipset.
