When the Poco series announced with the Flagship level specs, It breaks most of the sales because there is always a space in this category. Most of the companies enter into this category, and when they got famous, they slowly moved their price range. After Poco F1, Xiaomi can’t give the same price range and specs value combination. They begin to refresh some old models in the brand of Poco. But the Poco series still has its audience. Recently Xiaomi announced Poco X3 NFC with Snapdragon 732G and 120Hz display. The 732 processor is an upgrade in clock speed, which is best for gaming. Other than that, everything is the same, including GPU. The price range starts from 199 euro as early bird access (235 USD).
It is another milestone in the mid-range options of Xiaomi, but its specs are very impressive. Although Xiaomi announced it as a mid-range phone but some of its specs beat the flagships.
Let’s take a look at Poco X3 specifications.
Poco X3 Near Field Communication (NFC)
The main highlight feature is NFC. Most of the mid-range Xiaomi phones don’t come with this feature.

You can bill your grocery, pay your parking fee, connect with other NFC devices to exchange data, and much more.
Poco X3 doesn’t come with 5G processors like Snapdragon 765. But, The Poco X3 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The Snapdragon 732G is a next-generation chipset that requires upgraded CPU and GPU to deliver better gaming experience using the faster artificial intelligence (AI). With this chipset, Poco X3 will be giving the next level of gaming experience and speed to its user. Whenever the “G” suffix comes with the Snapdragon processor, It means the chipset is best for the gaming experience.
