Poco has launched its latest product — the F3 GT, in India. It’s a gaming-focused smartphone and the first one from the company to come with trigger buttons. It’s largely based on the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition that is available in India. Here, we will be discussing the key specifications, features, launch, and expected price of the Poco F3 GT in Nepal.
Poco F3 GT Rumors Roundup
Design and Display
PocoF3 GT features a 6.67-inch OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The touch sampling rate here is 420Hz. Though Poco has not revealed anything, we expect it to be a three-finger sampling rate as in the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition. Moving on, here you are getting a 10-bit display panel boasting over 1 billion colors. In addition, Poco F3 GT has 100% DCI-P3 coverage and HDR10+ support.
Poco F3 GT is the first from the brand to feature an aerospace-grade aluminum frame. Like the front, Poco has used Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone incorporates three levels of curves for comfortable grip – Radial, Square, and Concave bevels. The latter facilitates comfortable gaming.
Performance and Gaming
Under the hood, it packs the flagship-level MediaTek Dimensity 1200. MediaTek’s flagship chipset features four Cortex A78 and four Cortex A55 cores. it supports HyperEngine 3.0 technology which adds features like ray-tracing The integrated 5G modem also allows a 5G dual-standby.
Keeping the system cool is an 11,540mm2 large vapor chamber and aerospace-grade white graphene heat sink. Software-wise you get Game Turbo for GT which enables you to change settings for individual games for the best result.
As mentioned earlier, Poco F3 GT is the first from the brand to feature a trigger button. The GT switches or Maglev triggers utilize two triggers for the pop-up mechanism. Since these triggers are mechanical in nature, Poco says they offer lower latency and more accurate controls than touch-based Air triggers.
