Whether speed or power, the Poco X3 GT ticks the right boxes

July 29, 2021

Speed Meets Power with the Poco X3 GT, which is now available in the UAE! Powered by MediaTek’s high-performance Dimensity 1100 5G chipset, the Poco X3 GT boasts a 120Hz DynamicSwitch DotDisplay, a high-resolution 64MP triple camera, and—for the first time ever on Poco smartphones—67W Turbo Charging technology to rapidly charge its 5000mAh high-density battery. The X3 GT is built tough, with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus prevents most scratches and cracks.

The Poco X3 GT introduces multiple Poco X-series firsts. Under the hood, the X3 GT is equipped with MediaTek’s flagship-level Dimensity 1100 5G chipset. Dimensity 1100 stands out to deliver a faster CPU and better connectivity. This is developed on the back of a 6nm chipset, the first POCO smartphone equipped with this power-efficient flagship process technology. The X3 GT operates on the latest four powerful Arm Cortex-A78 cores at up to 2.6GHz, and four Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. This CPU architecture, combined with an improved nine-core Arm Mali-G77 GPU running at 836MHz, brings more high-fidelity gaming to the device. Plus, you’re well connected with an integrated 5G modem, dual SIM card slots, and WiFi 6 support.

Meanwhile, the X3 GT remains cool throughout thanks to LiquidCool Technology 2.0, the flagship-level liquid cooling that ensures long-lasting performance. To top this off, UFS 3.1’s blazing fast performance makes accessing and saving files lightning fast, so you can do more and do it faster.

The first Poco phone to feature 67W Turbo Charging, charging from 0% to 100% in only 42 minutes, the X3 GT is designed to endure and react to the most demanding content. Its massive 5000mAh  battery, keeps users powered all day, while its high-end display with flagship-level 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate makes POCO X3 GT highly responsive so users will never miss a beat. DynamicSwitch from 30Hz to 120Hz intelligently adjusts refresh rate to match the needs of each content, largely optimizing power consumption.

The Poco X3 GT has been tested to perform reliably even in high temperatures, while its display is Corning Gorilla Glass Victus – a leading display material that’s highly resistant to drops and scratches and arriving for the first time in a POCO phone.

To enhance user experience, POCO X3 GT comes with practical features users will enjoy day-to-day, such as multifunctional NFC and the flagship-level X-axis linear motor for a better haptic experience with every vibration of the device.

On the camera front, the X3 GT includes a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide camera, and 2MP macro camera. With this set up, capture not just Pro Time-Lapse shots and select the best shots from a burst of photos with AI Shutters, but also shoot like a pro with ample video recording features that’ll empower users with tools to rival the look and feel achieved by professional vloggers. These include real-time bokeh video, while HDR video recording on both the front and rear cameras can capture a wide range of colors and depth. Once that perfect shot is recorded, one of 8 cinematic movie filters can be applied, or users can select from one of five vlog templates.

The X3 GT is available in three stylish color- Stargaze Black provides a classic glossy finish, while Cloud White and Wave Blue give a dash of personality in contemporary design.

Poco X3 GT will be available in two variants, 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB, and will be available for purchase on July 29, 2021. 8GB+128GB: Recommended retail price at AED 1,249 and is exclusively available on Amazon. 8GB+256GB: Recommended retail price at AED 1,399 via official sales channels in the UAE
