Rumored for a few weeks, the Poco X3 NFC is official. The manufacturer has just unveiled it online and presented all of its features. Price, technical sheet, design, we take stock of the brand new Poco (or Xiaomi?) Smartphone. And as a bonus, we have already been able to test it from every angle and even reveal it to you on video.
While we tested the Poco F2 Pro less than two months ago, Xiaomi (or maybe should just say Poco?) Is doing it again with a new model in the range. Even if he does not have all the finery, the Poco X3 NFC however, is a much cheaper model than the F2 Pro. The two devices clearly don’t play in the same category, and yet the Poco X3 NFC has everything to become a real power hit. A quick overview of this smartphone that has almost everything to seduce.

An SoC and a battery that hold up for a super competitive price
Team of one Snapdragon 732G, the smartphone is certainly not the most powerful model of the year, but it still has it under its feet. The processor offers performance similar to what we got just two years ago with the top of the basket, namely the Snadragon 845. So much so that Poco clearly presents it as a gaming smartphone, even if we are far from the performance achieved by an Asus Rog Phone 3, for example.
Its 6.67 ″ FHD + screen has a 120 Hz refresh rate. While the technology is spreading more and more, it was for the moment dedicated to high-end smartphones. Offering 120 Hz for less than € 250 is unheard of for the moment. As this technology is particularly energy intensive, Poco has equipped its X3 NFC with a 5160 mAh battery. Enough to last 2 full days without having to worry about recharging, according to the manufacturer.
Finally, the device has a 33W fast charge, which allows it to be fully recharged in 65 minutes. Poco did not hesitate to cut back on its margins and indeed included in the box the adequate charger, rather than opt for a less powerful model as many (too) manufacturers do.
Four sensors on the back and a tiny punch on the front
On the photo side, the device has a small punch on the front which is only 3.8 mm in diameter. There is a module of 20 MP, which features an aperture of ƒ / 2.2 and a 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel. At the rear we take advantage of the following different sensors:
- a 64MP main sensor (a Sony IMX682)
- a 13MP ultra-wide-angle sensor
- a 2MP macro sensor
- a 2 MP depth sensor
