Similarly, the Poco X2 launched last year was rated as the best seller on Flipkart in the range of Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000. It’s successor, the Poco X3, also repeated the same move as the best one to buy under Rs 20,000.
The latest launch came in the form of the Poco X3 Pro, which marks the company’s return to its roots of high-performance smartphones at affordable prices. The Poco X3 Pro is currently the only phone under Rs 20,000 to feature the Snapdragon 860 chip. Going forward, the company is expected to launch the Poco M3 Pro to India and there are rumours of the 5G version headed to our shores as well.
