Poco X3 NFC
The Design and Display
The general look of the Poco X3 NFC is quite different from that of its predecessor and telling them apart is quite easy.
The smartphone comes with an IP53 rating for splash-proof. It is true that it is not like the top of the line IP68 rating, for water and dust resistance but it is still okay.
The quad rear cameras are arranged in a camera module at the rear of the device. There is also an LED flash for bright pictures even in low lit areas.
You can’t miss the Poco branding on the rear panel of the device as the dark colour strip used for this purpose makes it very obvious.
The screen of the device is a 6.67 inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2400, a density of 395 PPI, as well as a 120Hz refresh rate. The front facing camera is placed on the hole-punch of this display.
The Poco X3 NFC is fitted with a quad rear camera set up which is made up of a 64MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.9, a 13MP ultra wide camera with an aperture of f/2.2, a 2MP macro camera with an aperture of f/2.4, as well as a 2MP depth camera with an aperture of f/2.4.
This camera set up is able to record videos at 4k @ 30fps. It can also record 1080p videos at 30 / 120fps and 720p videos at 960fps.
Unlike the Poco X2 which features dual front-facing camera, the Poco X3 NFC is equipped with a single 20MP punch hole camera with an aperture of f/2.2. This selfie camera in addition to providing the phone users with awesome pictures, can also record videos at 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software
Running the show on the the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC is the newly released Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor. In case you are wondering what the fuss is all about with the processor, just know that it is regarded as the most powerful non 5G processor in the Snapdragon 700 series.
In addition to the amazing processor, the phone comes with an Adreno 618 GPU, 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage, which all contribute towards a seamless performance.
The battery capacity of the device is also one of its highlights as it boasts of a non-removable 5160mAh battery. The battery also supports a 33W fast charge mechanism, which makes it even better.
For software the Xiaomi Poco X3 features the MIUI 12 interface on top of the Android 10 operating system.
When it comes to connectivity, the mobile phone boasts of a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C (USB 2.0), NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth 5.0.
For Internet connectivity the Poco X3 NFC supports only as much as 4G LTE. So if what you really want is a phone that supports 5G, then this is not for you. That is not to say that the 4G is not okay, as it really is and will provide the phone users with fast as well as reliable internet connectivity, albeit at 4G speed.
