What to expect from the Poco event?
The details haven’t been revealed, but there have been plenty of leaks about devices to expect.
The Poco F3 is thought to be the global version of the Redmi K40, launched in China recently. For the Poco phone, we’re expecting to see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and a triple camera on the rear made up of a 48-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel ultra-wide and a 5-megapixel macro.
Poco X3 Pro
This is expected to be a step-up device over the Poco X3 NFC that appeared in 2020. It’s expected to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 with a quad rear camera using a 48-megapixel main sensor. There’s reports of a 5000mAh battery and a 120Hz display too.
