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 Design and Display

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.

Maglev Triggers on Poco F3 GT

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.

Camera

At the back, we see a minimal camera bump enclosing the triple camera setup. The bump has a metal enclosing that protects the lenses from scratches and reduces wobble when placed on a flat surface. You also get an RGB Glow around the module that alerts users of notifications while also adding to the gaming aesthetics of the phone.  Poco has even spiced up the LED flash by giving it a lightning-like shape.
