Mid-range smartphone champion POCO X3 NFC arrives in PH

The industry-redefining smartphone brand POCO is bringing its latest mid-range champion to the Philippines! The recently launched POCO X3 NFC is launched in the country, simultaneously with all first-batch markets globally.

The new middle-range smartphone is designed for young tech and gaming enthusiasts. It also adopts the unique finish-line look that screams power. POCO X3 NFC puts performance above all else without any frills—at a fraction of the usual price.

“POCO X3 NFC continues the legendary tradition of POCO as it is the perfect daily driver with incredible everyday use and optimized gaming experience,” said Xiaomi Country Manager of The Philippines Mark Li. “We are proud of the fact that POCO X3 NFC is the world’s first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. This is a testament to our commitment to provide the latest technology at honest prices.”

Here are the outstanding features that caught our attention during the September 7 global launch of this new champion:


Brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 platform

The new device is powered by the most powerful 4G processor so far from Qualcomm—the Snapdragon 732G. Thus, the POCO X3 NFC can sustain its peak performance and AI capabilities. On top of that, it has an architecture based on Kryo 470 octa-core CPU and Adreno 618 Elite Gaming series GPU. Even the most demanding gamers will surely rave about this.

LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus combines an enlarged copper heat pipe with multiple layers of graphite. This reduces the heat within the smartphone’s processor by up to 6 degrees—for steady and frictionless user experience.

The incredible performance can further be optimized for gaming through the latest iteration of Game Turbo 3.0. It tunes the phone in accordance with game requirements that ensures users to get the most out of the handset’s powerful hardware. Its Z-axis linear motor ensures superb haptic feedback with over 150 vibration modes for different scenarios.


120Hz + 240Hz display and stereo speakers

POCO X3 NFC features a stunning edge-to-edge 6.67” FHD+ DotDisplay with a staggering combination of a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Meanwhile, its DynamicSwitch function switches between 50, 60, 90, and 120Hz depending on the use and format of the content displayed on one of the smoothest screens available in the mid-range price category. Power usage is optimized with the refresh rate going up for gaming and down for lighter operations like reading.

The 240Hz touch sampling rate further reinforces the smartphone’s extraordinary display capabilities. It boasts of a 22% faster response than most other flagships, facilitating a more satisfying user experience while providing users a noticeable competitive advantage even in the middle of the most sophisticated games.

A pair of flagship-grade stereo speakers (4cc-equivalent upper and 1cc-equivalent lower speaker with up to 0.5mm vibration amplitude) bring in crystal clear stereo sound and absorbing gaming experience. The speakers are even able to self-clean for unmuffled audio.


64MP AI quad-camera system

The top-notch rear quad-camera system has a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide angle camera, 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, POCO X3 NFC is equipped with a 20MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and 1.6µm 4-in-1 Super Pixel for taking unblemished selfies.

There are more. The new smartphone packs a slew of creative features that include six kaleidoscope options, Gold vibes mode, Cyberpunk mode, new photo filters, and AI Skyscaping 3.0 all to further brighten up your social media feed.

As a video-creating device, POCO X3 NFC has 4K video recording features with smooth video zoom, focus peaking, and AE/AF lock. The LOG/RAW format support and Vlog mode not only ensures users can capture their most important moments in the utmost quality but also turn the phone into a semi-professional workstation for video content production.


5,160mAh and 33W fast-charging battery

The large 5,160mAh(typ) battery can last for over two days under moderate usage. The handset supports 33W fast charging—making the device to be charged 100% in as fast as 65 minutes. A 30-minute charging time can fill the battery up to 62%.

The increased charging speed is attained through Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology. This is based on an innovative method wherein the battery received the electric current from the middle and it spreads simultaneously to the top and bottom of the module. (In traditional batteries, the electric current comes from the bottom, going upwards.) This is cited for the faster and more consistent charging speed and ensured longevity.


POCO X3 NFC is available for P10,990 for the 6GB+64GB variant and P12,990 for the 6GB+128GB variant. It comes in Shadow Gray and Cobalt Blue. Check it out in Shopee, Lazada, and authorized Mi Stores.
