To compete with OnePlus Nord 2, the Poco F3 GT got released in India on Friday. The smartphone features a unique pricing structure that may confuse some but gives early customers the best price. Poco’s F3 GT is the company’s second smartphone in the F series after the Poco F1 was released almost three years ago. A repackaged Redmi K40 Gaming Edition was released in China earlier this year.
The Poco F3 GT has a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 CPU, triple back camera, 120Hz AMOLED display, and gaming side buttons. Poco includes a 67W fast charger with the phone. Besides the OnePlus Nord 2, the Poco F3 GT will fight with the Asus ROG series by offering a more inexpensive alternative.
Poco F3 GT Pricing in India
The Poco F3 GT pricing in India is Rs 26,999 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, Rs 28,999 for 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, and Rs 30,999 for 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. However, this is the real price of the phone and customers may get it for considerably less during the first few days.
To celebrate the launch of the F3 GT, Poco has created the Mad Reverse Pricing (MRP) idea (Till August 2, 2021). This week (August 3–9), the phone will be sold for Rs 500 cheaper than the actual price. On August 12, at 12 noon, the phone will start selling for the mentioned price. Pre-orders begin July 24 and sales begin on July 26.
Using ICICI Bank credit or debit cards will also give consumers a Rs 1,000 discount.
The Poco F3 GT features a glass back panel and is available in Predator Black and Gunmetal Silver. It’s the first Poco smartphone with AMOLED. Packed with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR 10+ support. 10-bit panel with DC dimming to minimize on-screen flicker.
Despite a 5,065mAh battery, the phone is 8.33mm thick and weighs about 205 grams. Poco ships the phone with a 67W fast charger and an L-shaped charging cord so you can charge it while gaming.
It has a Mediatek Dimensity 1200 processor. The same CPU powers the OnePlus Nord 2. Poco has added two magnetic shoulder buttons to the top of the phone.
On the back, Poco F3 GT has a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. It may have a 16-megapixel front camera. Like previous Xiaomi and Poco phones, the phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
