POCO F3 GT India launch is expected to happen sometime in the first half of August and the phone is speculated to be a Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition rebrand. The POCO phone is already confirmed to ship with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC and will look to take on the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2 that also has the same chipset. Now, ahead of the announcement, POCO F3 GT has teased by the company on Twitter. According to the tweet, the handset will feature Aerospace-Grade Aluminium Alloy Frame. It is said to come with three levels of bevels – a radical bevel on one side, a concave bevel at the top, and a square bevel on the other side. POCO F3 GT is built with a 7000 aluminium alloy frame and features a glass sandwich design.

“Our spanking new Poco F3 GT looks more refined than its predecessor (and the competition of course :P) as it exudes a premium feel owning to its glass construct in conjunction with an aerospace-grade aluminium alloy frame. Purposeful engineering led to us developing a high-quality metal frame that starkly contrasts that of our competitors, who still persist with flimsy plastic frames on their so-called “flagship killer devices.GT’s singular metal frame is crafted to have three levels of bevels: radical, concave, and square, which lend an extra dimension to the ergonomics of the phone,” said the post. Unfortunately, the company is yet to reveal the POCO F3 GT launch date in India, we can expect more teasers to follow.

POCO F3 GT specifications are expected to be similar to the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. To recall, the Redmi phone sports a 6.67-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 480Hz touch sampling rate, HDR10+, and punch-hole cutout for the selfie snapper. The phone will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage that is further expandable via a microSD card. It runs Android 11-based MIUI 12 custom skin and packs a 5,065mAh battery with 67W fast-charging support.
