Earlier this week, reproductions of a new Poco X3 Pro were discovered from known leaks. It seems that a release for this boosted version of the Poco X3 NFC, which has been out for about half a year, is immanent: now it appears in retailer listings, complete with a set of specifications. It’s mostly similar to the already released device, but the text teases more RAM and storage, and a Snapdragon SoC we have not heard of before.
Both the pages from the Vietnamese online store Shopee and screenshots of the store posted on Twitter have been removed at the time of writing, but XDA-Developers managed to take some photos and specifications. The renderings of the phone look almost identical to the Poco X3 NFC, with an identical rear camera cluster and a 6.67-inch screen. But according to the store page, this boosted version of the phone has an optional upgrade to 8 GB of RAM and 1
Most interesting is the “Snapdragon 860” SoC, a model that has not been used in any previous phones. Based on the Kryo 485 processor and Adreno 640 GPU in the specification list, this seems to be a small revision of the 855+, which runs at an identical maximum clock of 2.96 GHz. While it would be somewhat outdated when it comes to flagship devices, this is not a flagship phone: the X3 NFC runs on an economical Snapdragon 732G and costs under $ 300.
With both the look of the phone and the leaky guts, you can expect to spot this model in an official announcement sooner rather than later. Expect the price to be somewhere in the $ 300-400 range.
