As per the post, the POCO X3 will feature a 6.67-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood, the phone is said to feature an unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 chipset. Around the back of the phone will be a quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor. For selfies, the phone will have a 20MP camera housed within a tiny hole-punch cutout at the top of the display. Keeping the lights on will be a 5,160mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
