Poco F3 GT is set to launch in India in the third quarter of 2021, a company executive has confirmed. The Country Director of POCO India (Anuj Sharma), shared a 30-second video on Twitter that also shows the smartphone will come with MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. In his tweet, he also talks about triggers. Both of these clues align with a previous rumour that Poco F3 GT will be a rebranded version of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition.
Poco F3 GT Price in India and availability
As mentioned by Sharma in his tweet, the Poco F3 GT will be launched in Q3 2021, which starts from July 1. Another report suggests that the Poco F3 GT may be priced around Rs 25,000 in India.
To give some perspective, the Redmi K40 Game Edition was launched at a starting price of CNY 1,999 (around Rs 22,800) for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model, and goes up to CNY 2,699 (around Rs 30,800) for the 12GB RAM + 256GB storage model.
Poco F3 GT specifications (expected)
The Poco F3 GT is expected to run on Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 and feature a 6.67-inch FHD+ (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) AMOLED display. It will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, however, there is no detail about the variants that will be launched in India, though if we go by the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, we can expect up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
As for optics, the phone is tipped to carry a triple rear camera setup with a 64MP primary sensor with an f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 2MP macro shooter. It may also have a 16MP selfie camera sensor at the front.
The phone is expected to be backed by a 5,065mAh battery with 67W fast charging support. It may also have an Infrared (IR) blaster as well as a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Poco F3 GT is expected to come with connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS / A-GPS / NavIC, and a USB Type-C port.
All these leaked specifications match with the specifications of Redmi K40 Gaming Edition.
