Both the Poco X3 Pro and Poco F3 have Qualcomm’s new chipset that have been fundamentally refresh and repurpose as flagship processors from the past two years, making them an exciting show of price performance.

It also features a 6.67-inch 120Hz 1080-pixel LCD screen, a 5160 mAh battery, a 33-watt fast charging feature, and a quad-camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor.
What is new here is the processor, where the Poco X3 Pro comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 SoC processor, and this processor is a new version of the Snapdragon 855, which is find in phones like the Galaxy S10 and Pixel 4.
