Poco’s Product Marketing Manager and Global Spokesperson is doling out details for the Poco X3. The phone will indeed have a 64 MP camera, the manager confirmed, and shared the first camera sample from the phone.
First official Poco X3 camera sample (down-scaled)
Unfortunately, it’s downscaled – the phone should be taking 16 MP photos with pixel binning. You can also catch a glimpse of the camera UI below. It’s similar but not identical to what we saw on the F2 Pro, for example.
Poco X3 taking a photo
That wasn’t the only teaser for today, Poco X3’s battery can be charged fully in 65 minutes. The chart below compares it with the Samsung Galaxy A71, which needs 80 minutes to fill its 4,500 mAh battery with the included 25 W charger (our tests confirm that number).
So, will the X3 come with a 33W charger as rumors suggested? Perhaps not, it may not be powerful enough. Let’s compare with the Poco M2 Pro – it has a 5,000 mAh battery and does come with a 33W charger. However, it takes 30 minutes to hit 50% charge.
The X3 is expected to have a battery with similar capacity, but if you look closely at the chart, the 50% mark is reached in about 20 minutes. The X3 could have a slightly smaller battery, of course, the X2 had a 4,500 mAh power cell, for example. Or maybe Poco found a way to optimize the charging. “I shall explain how we achieved this in our official launch,” says the manager.
Anyway, the manager promised to share more details about the Poco X3 soon.
