120Hz + 240Hz display and stereo speakers

 In line with POCO’s goal of making innovation available to everyone, the X3 sports a stunning edge-to-edge 6.67” FHD+ DotDisplay. It sports one of the smoothest screens in its price category.

Its unique DynamicSwitch function automatically switches the phone between 50, 60, 90 and 120Hz depending on the format of the content displayed on the screen, allowing the phone’s refresh rate to go up for use cases like gaming and down for lighter operations like reading – thereby optimizing power usage.

The 240hz touch sampling rate further reinforces the phone’s extraordinary display capabilities, providing an exceptionally satisfying user experience as well as a noticeable competitive advantage even in the most sophisticated games. 

To ensure utmost immersion, X3 comes with a pair of flagship-grade stereo speakers. The 4cc-equivalent upper speaker, 1cc-equivalent lower speaker, and up to 0.5mm vibration amplitude deliver crystal clear stereo sound and absorbing gaming experience. Moreover, the speakers’ ability to self-clean ensures unmuffled audio in the long run. 

64MP AI quad-camera system

POCO X3 NFC sports a rear quad-camera system consisting of a 64MP primary camera, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The phone’s primary camera is a flagship Sony IMX 682 sensor featuring an ƒ/1.89 aperture and 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel.

The 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera sports a 119° field of view propped up by ƒ/2.2 aperture and a 1.0μm pixel size, while the 2MP macro camera and depth sensor complete the setup offering extra functionality and reinforcing the primary lens’ capabilities.

On the front, the device sports a tiny dot 20MP camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel. 

POCO X3 NFC also packs a slew of creative features including six kaleidoscope options, Gold vibes mode, Cyberpunk mode, numerous new photo filters, as well as AI Skyscaping 3.0, presenting innovative ways to brighten up users’ captures.

The device’s 4K video recording as well as features including smooth video zoom, focus peaking and AE/AF lock are ideal for video enthusiasts.

5,160mAh battery and 33W fast charging

POCO X3 NFC is equipped with a massive 5,160mAh battery that lasts over two days with moderate usage. The handset supports 33W fast charging which means that it can be charged to 100% in only 65 minutes while a 30 minutes of charging will fill it up to 62%.

The increased charging speed is achieved through Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology – an innovative method wherein the battery receives the electric current from the middle and spreads it simultaneously to the top and bottom of the module. This allows faster and more consistent charging speed along with battery longevity.
