The Poco X3 Pro has debuted in India, days after the phone launched globally with the new Snapdragon 860 processor by Qualcomm – designed for flagship 4G smartphones. The phone comes in two storage options, and customers can purchase it in either Graphite Black, Steel Blue, or Golden Bronze colour option via Flipkart starting April 6. Flipkart customers will also be able to avail up to Rs 1,000 instant discount with ICICI debit and credit cards. Notable features of the Poco X3 Pro include a quad rear camera system, a 5,160mAh battery, and a large display. As its name suggests, the phone succeeds the Poco X3, launched in September 2020.

The Poco X3 Pro carries a 5,160mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging, with the charger included inside the box. Poco claims that the large battery can deliver up to 11 hours of gaming time and 18 hours of video playback time.
Additionally, the Poco X3 Pro can automatically adjust the refresh rate to 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz or 120Hz, to preserve the battery. The quad rear camera system includes a 48-megapixel primary camera with f/1.79 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, and two 2-megapixel shooters for macro and portrait photography.
