Poco X3 Pro Expected Features, Specs, Price
We lack concrete information on the Poco X3 Pro. However, we do have some rumors that give us some clues on what the device could offer. As per a recent report by XDA Developers, the smartphone is likely to get two codenames, ‘Vayu’ and ‘Bhima,’ throwing light on two of its variants.
The smartphone is likely to be powered by an ‘sm8150’ chip, hinting at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or the 855 Plus processor, which is surprising as the processor is quite old.
The proposition might lure people since it’s a high-end processor but we are not sure how good an idea it is to incorporate a two-year-old chipset in a phone today. Since there will be support for LTE, there are chances there won’t be support for 5G.
Other possible specs include a 48-megapixel quad rear camera setup, a big battery like the Poco X3, the inclusion of a 120Hz higher refresh rate, and support for fast charging. As for the price, there are chances the Poco X3 Pro could fall under Rs 30,000 and compete with the likes of the recent Realme X7 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 10i.
