The new POCO X3 NFC has just been announced here in Malaysia, with an exceptionally affordable price tag. The POCO X3 NFC offers POCO fans a sub-RM1000 option that actually offers certain features that are actually better than what’s found on their flagship POCO F2 Pro.

On the POCO X3 NFC you get stereo sound, a 120Hz LCD display and a whopping 5160mAh battery, all of which the POCO F2 Pro lacks. Of course you aren’t getting a flagship chipset here, but you get the point. The POCO X3 NFC has a pretty impressive feature set for users who are more into the user experience than straight out flagship performance.

Speaking of performance, you do get the Snapdragon 732G, which is an overclocked variant of the already pretty capable Snapdragon 730G. The POCO X3 NFC is the first device to offer said chipset, and POCO pairs it with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of storage.
