At the end of August, the Xiaomi Poco X3 passed approval by Anatel and generated expectations among fans of the brand: would the device be about to be launched in Brazil? The answer is a resounding “yes”. With a focus on the gamer audience, the Poco X3 was announced this Thursday (8) for the country thanks to the partnership between Xiaomi and DL.
The model arrives in Brazil just a month after being announced for the European market and comes in the two color options launched there: Shadow Gray (gray) and Cobalt Blue (blue).
But what stands out the most is the hardware set. It starts with the screen, a 6.67-inch LCD panel, full HD + resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate and 240 Hz touch sampling rate.
According to Xiaomi, these parameters improve the gaming experience by ensuring low visual latency and allowing touch responses up to 33% faster than the average of other smartphones on the market.
The gaming experience is complemented by LiquidCool Plus technology, basically a copper tube combined with multiple layers of graphite that reduces the processor temperature by up to 6 degrees Celsius.
Speaking of processor, the Poco X3 is equipped with the Snapdragon 732G, intermediate chip, but focused on games. Of course, we cannot expect performance similar to that of the Snapdragon 800 series chips, but the Adreno 618 GPU that integrates the 732G has a “turbocharged” clock, so it can provide some performance gain in games.
In a complementary way, Xiaomi explains that, like other cell phones of the brand, the Poco X3 has the Game Turbo 3.0, an application that brings a series of resources to optimize and increase the execution of games.
The specifications complete 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB of storage and a 5,160 mAh battery with a 33 W charger – a full recharge only requires 65 minutes, says Xiaomi.
The set of rear cameras is made up of a main sensor of 64 megapixels (Sony IMX682), one of 13 megapixels for wide angle (119 degrees), one of 2 megapixels for macro and another one also of 2 megapixels for depth. The front camera, housed in a “hole” centered on the screen, has a 20 megapixel sensor.
As approach payments are becoming increasingly important, Xiaomi is keen to point out that the Poco X3 comes with NFC – the device has even officially been called Poco X3 NFC recently (although there is a version of the Poco X3 launched in India that exchanges the NFC for a 6,000 mAh battery).
In Brazil, the suggested smartphone prices are:
- 64 GB Poco X3: R $ 2,999.99
- 128 GB Poco X3: R $ 3,299.99
Obviously, official sales here imply a one-year warranty and technical assistance.
