POCO now has its aim set on the flagship market as it releases two new phone models today. One of them is the POCO F3, and its specs and features will surely make it the popular choice among smartphone enthusiasts in the weeks to come.
Crafted from a non-slippery material and measuring only 7.8mm thin and 196g in weight, the POCO F3 feels comfortable and secure in the hand. At the same time, the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back gives the phone sturdy protection. The POCO F3’s 120Hz high refresh rate provides unprecedented smoothness when gaming on the large 6.67″ AMOLED display. This beast also features one of the tiniest dots in the industry at just 2.76mm.
Additionally, the 360Hz touch sampling rate and the fine-tuned touch algorithm allows the phone to respond extremely fast to the touch of a fingertip. The MEMC technology, adding up to 60fps, further enhances the smoothness of video content.
POCO F3’s AI triple camera setup and myriad of crafty, innovative camera features help unleash photography skills. The rear cameras consist of a 48MP main camera with 1.6μm 4-in-1 large pixel, an 119° ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP telemacro camera that supports 3cm – 7cm autofocus. This finely tuned combo allows for stunning high-resolution and detailed images in lightning time, greatly improving the camera’s versatility. The 20MP front camera also supports Night Mode selfie.
Unlike most of the dual-mic smartphones, POCO F3 has a triple-microphone setup and comes with Audio Zoom feature. When shooting a video, the dedicated third microphone on the rear allows the device to “zoom in” on the sound along with the image, capturing clear audio of far-away scenes and considerably improving sound reception during filming. Meanwhile, the X-axis linear haptic motor provides short, crisp vibrations to complete the flagship-level entertainment experience.
The 4,520mAh battery capacity can be charged to 100% in just 52 minutes with a 33-W fast charger that comes with the package.
The POCO F3 comes in three colors, Arctic White, Night Black and Deep Ocean Blue, with two storage variants – 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB. The 6GB+128GB will retail at P17,990, while the 8GB+258GB version is priced at P20,990 exclusively on Lazada. Consumers who will avail on March 27 will enjoy an early bird offer of P15,990 and P18,990 for the 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB respectively.
