POCO X3 GT passes SIRIM certification
Remember when I was lamenting that the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G was nothing like the Redmi Note 10 Pro we have here in Malaysia? Well, it seems that it might actually make its way to us, but under a different label. According to many rumors, the POCO X3 GT might be a rebranded variant of the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G, and it just got certification from SIRIM, which means that it will be launching in Malaysia really soon.
While it might be a rebadged Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G, we might see the POCO X3 GT come in an entirely different design but with the same innards, like in the case of the POCO M3 Pro 5G. If the rumors are true, the specifications list of the POCO X3 GT could turn out to be quite interesting. It should come with a Dimensity 1100 under the hood, that will be cooled by one of the largest vapor chambers we have heard of in a phone, measuring a good 16370mm2.
Other cool stuff under the hood include LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, along with 67W fast charging for its 5000mAh battery. There’s a nice 120Hz refresh rate for its LCD display, along with a 64MP main camera. There’s no headphone jack, which might reduce its appeal to mobile gamers, but it does offer dual-speakers with JBL tuning and Dolby Atmos, which hopefully is enough to soften the blow of the missing legacy audio connector.
POCO X3 GT Specs *rumored*
- Dimensity 1100, octa-core up to 2.6GHz, 6nm EUV
- Up to 8GB LPDDR4x
- Up to 256GB UFS 3.1 storage
- 6.6″ FHD+ 120Hz LCD display, 450 nits max brightness
- 64MP f/1.79 + 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide + 2MP f/2.4 macro
- 16MP selfie camera
- 5000mAh battery, 67W fast charging
The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G also touts a Razer software keyboard, but I am not sure if Xiaomi has licensed the keyboard to be used outside of China. Will we get to see it in the POCO X3 GT? We have yet to see the first phone to tout it arrive in global market. It is also worth mentioning that this isn’t the rumored POCO F3 GT, that is supposed to arrive later this year. I am quite excited to see that one though.
Pokdepinion: Would this be the first gaming phone under the POCO brand? I know I considered the POCOPHONE F1 a gaming phone, but it isn’t officially regarded as one.
