Powerful, good design and good cameras
For weeks it was rumored that the POCO F3 would be an international version of the Redmi K40 and before its presentation, this rumor seemed to be confirmed. The design is identical, with its 6.67-inch perforated AMOLED display, with Full HD + resolution, HDR10 + technology, 1300 nits of maximum brightness and 120Hz refresh rate, which allow a good experience while playing with this device.
It’s something that’s boosted by the 360Hz tactile sample rate, which is higher than much more expensive models. The screen is one of the key aspects of this device.
Snapdragon 870 is the processor of choice in this model, a high-end processor from Qualcomm, which gives the device excellent performance and 5G connectivity as standard. It’s a good processor for gaming too, something that can be used in combination with its screen and 120Hz refresh rate. With this processor we have a battery capacity of 4520mAh, which will give it a good autonomy. This battery also has 33W fast charge.
At the back of this POCO F3 three cameras are waiting for us: a main sensor of 48 Mpx, an ultra wide angle of 8 Mpx and a macro sensor of 5 Mpx. It’s a solid combination, backed by the brand’s AI, to get good images with. A 20 Mpx sensor for selfies awaits us on the front of the phone, with a perforation of less than 3 mm.
