Poco X3

The all-new Poco X3 is set to launch on September 7th according to a recent tweet. It will feature Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 732G chipset. While the phone wasn’t explicitly named the announcement of the chipset quoted Sam Jiang from Poco, who said his company will be the first to use the new chipset. Seeing how the teaser campaign for the X3 is already in progress it’s not too hard to guess that it will be the one using the new chipset. The phone is predicted to fall anywhere in the mid to the mid-low range when it comes to pricing and its expected price can be somewhere around Rs. 25,000. This device is expected to be a mid-range warrior and has already been teased to bring a 64-megapixel lens-based quad-camera set-up and also feature a massive battery with possibly 33W or even faster fast charging.

Seeing how the teaser campaign for the X3 is already in progress it’s not too hard to guess that it will be the one using the new chipset. Not to mention that some rumors claimed it will ship with the 732G even before Qualcomm had announced it. Apart from this, the chipset also gets the Snapdragon Elite Gaming and 4th-generation Qualcomm AI Engine for “intuitive interactions and predictive user experiences with distributed intelligence twice as powerful as previous generations.” This helps with battery performance as well. The built-in ISP can record 4K video at 30 fps and supports HDR10 and HLG for high dynamic range footage. It can compress photos with the HEIF format. The AI accelerator offers performance up to 3.6 TOPS. Most new chipsets are being heavily battery and camera-centric with some room for gaming and the Poco X3 is no different when it comes to the Snapdragon 732G. 

The Snapdragon 732G chip is supposed to bring 15% improvement in the GPU department over the Snapdragon 730G.  the CPU’s main Kryo 470 Prime core is clocked at 2.3 GHz from 2.2 GHz. The performance Kryo 470 core is running at 2.2 GHz while the other 6 cores are ticking at 1.8 GH. Qualcomm will announce the chipset soon but reviews might already start coming in after the launch of the Poco X3 by users themselves. With the recent ban on PubG, there are still various other gaming apps which can benefit with a high performance gaming chip in India.
