POCO X3 Pro Overview
Design and Display
The phone features the same 6.67” FHD+ DotDisplay on the front with a centered punch hole. The display uses an LCD panel which is no AMOLED competitor but gets the job done. This panel supports a 120Hz refresh rate, 450 nits(manual), 1500:1 contrast ratio, 240Hz touch sampling rate, HDR10 Certification and Reading Mode 2.0.
Likewise, POCO X3 Pro also has the DynamicSwitch option for refreshing between 60,90, and 120Hz options. Similarly, Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protects the display.
Further, the back design is no different from POCO X3. According to the company, it retains the Croma design on the back which eliminates the fingerprint smudges. Also, it has brought a dual texture design available in three colors- Phantom Black, Frost Blue, Metal Bronze.
Performance and Memory
The POCO X3 Pro features the newly launched Snapdragon 860 chipset. It is basically a Snapdragon 855++, a more powerful 855+ option. SD 860 is an octa-core processor with eight Kryo 480 CPU cores with the Prime core clocked at 2.96GHz. It is built on a 7nm process which aids in low-power high performance. The graphics is handled by Adreno 640 GPU which is still not found in mid-range chipsets.
The chipset scores higher in the CPU Throttle Test than devices with the Snapdragon 765G. In fact, it is 52% better than the SD 765G with an improved AI engine capable of operating 7.6 TOPS (Snapdragon 855+ 7 TOPS).
This chipset teams with 6/8GB of LPDDR4x RAM. You can choose between either 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.1 which is 198% faster than UFS 2.1. Besides this, the POCO X3 Pro also has a dedicated MicroSD slot for extra storage (up to 1TB), and LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus for cooling.
This cooling uses D5 copper heat pipe buried beneath the chipset with a multi-layer graphite cooling. The company claims that this setup can reduce up to 6-degrees temperature.
Moving on, the phone ships with an MIUI 12 based on Android 11.
In terms of optics, the phone has a Quad-camera setup on the rear. Unfortunately, the main camera uses a 48MP f/1.79 Sony IMX582 sensor but the vanilla X3 has a 64MP lens. Complementing the setup is an 8MP f/2.2 ultra wide with a FOV of 119-degrees, 2MP macro sensor (up to 4cm), and a 2MP depth sensor. Upfront, the device has a 20MP (f/2.2) front camera for selfies as in the vanilla X3.
Some of the camera features include Night mode selfies, support for Night mode for ultra wide, Video clones, long exposure and dual video to capture both front and back camera views at the same time.
Battery and Miscellaneous
The phone packs in a decent 5,160 mAh battery with 33W fast charging included in the box. According to the company, it can last for 11 hrs of gaming, and 18hrs of video playback.
Just like the Vanilla X3, the ‘Pro’ variant also has a 3.5mm audio jack, dual-speakers with Hi-Res Audio certified. Besides that, the phone also has a z-axis linear vibration motor for haptics, IR Blaster and NFC.
