Xiaomi launched the Poco X3 NFC at a virtual launch event on 7 September and it’s on sale in the UK right now.
The Poco X3 uses a Snapdragon 732G chip that packs powerful mid-range performance. The only thing you’ll miss is 5G connectivity – which isn’t really a bad thing (here’s why). Instead, the phone packs a massive 5160mAh battery, 33W fast charging, a 120Hz refresh rate, and an incredibly vivid 6.67in LCD screen that might be one of the best in the budget range.
