POCO X3 GT launch date announced officially, rebranded Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G expected

Highlights
  • POCO X3 GT launch date has been set for July 28th in Malaysia. 
  • It is little more than a Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G and will likely be priced as such. 
  • Expected POCO X3 GT specs include a 120Hz LCD screen, 64MP quad rear cameras, a Dimensity 1100 SoC, and a 5,000mAh battery that supports 67W fast charging. 

Over the past few weeks, we’ve learned quite a lot about the POCO X3 GT specifications, which suggests that it is little more than a Redmi Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G with a fresh coat of paint. Now, the brand has officially confirmed the POCO X3 GT launch date. It is set for July 28th (via MySmartPrice), 2021 at 20:00 GMT. It will be launched via an online event live-streamed on Facebook. We don’t have the official streaming link just yet, but POCO should make it public soon. It shouldn’t be long before the POCO X3 GT hits global shores once it has been out and about in Malaysia for a while. 

POCO X3 GT specifications

We already know that the POCO X3 GT will pack a 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel clocked at 120H. It also features a 240Hz touch sampling rate, 1,100 nits peak brightness, and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for protection. MediaTek Dimensity 1100 SoC powers the smartphone, along with up to 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. The device draws power from a 5,0000mAh battery with 67W fast-charging support, although that figure could be bought down to 33W to keep it on par with similarly-priced POCO devices. 

Moving on to optics, the POCO X3 GT packs triple rear cameras with a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 2MP macro lens. A 16MP sensor takes care of selfies and video calls. Similarly, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor enables biometric authentication. 

POCO X3 GT price (expected)

We can expect the POCO X3 GT to cost more or less the same as the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G. Therefore it could retail for around RMB 1,599 (around Rs 18,200) for the base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
