Poco is a recognized brand that provides top of the line features for budget smartphone segment. Carrying the legacy, the company has launched its gaming centric smartphone, Poco F3 GT in India at impressive price tag. It is more or less the same phone as Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition launched in China. The phone brings some major improvements over Poco F3 in terms of gaming features. While being targeted solely towards gaming community, it offers great day to day performance as well. So, can the phone impress all the gamers out there? Are the features exciting enough to consider over regular F3? Let’s find out in this overview with full specifications and expected price in Nepal.
Poco F3 GT Overview: A Gamer’s Delight
Design & Display
Poco F3 GT gets all the gamery aesthetics from all corners possible. It has Gorilla Glass 5 back that has lines cut at different angles which give the phone that look. The pill shaped camera module has RGB lighting that changes colors according to your battery percentage too. The lightening shape houses flashlight.
Talking about the display, it is the same one used in Poco F3. It is 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED 120Hz display. The display can go bright up to 500nits. It is a 10 bit color panel and has 480Hz touch sampling rate. It also supports HDR10+ content. The display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Performance & Gaming Features
The CPU on the phone is a more budget friendly powerhouse, MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chip-set. It is an octa-core (1×3.0 GHz Cortex-A78 & 3×2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) processor. This is the same one as used in OnePlus Nord 2, which is recently launched too. The AI performance of the CPU is praised by all and is sure to deliver best results whenever necessary like camera and processes management. It even comes with HyperEngine 3.0 that offers ray tracing capabilities.
The main highlight of the phone is it’s physical pop-up gaming triggers for improved experience and haptics. By simultaneously sliding the pop-up slider, you can quickly launch the game space too. Furthermore, the device comes with 6 layered graphene sheets and vapor chamber to give you best possible results while gaming. F3 GT also features RGB lighting in the camera housing to give that gamer feel to it. Also, to improve Wi-Fi and cellular reception, the company has provided 4 antennas around the horizontal axis of the phone. For non-interrupted handling while gaming, you will get L-shaped charging connector on the box as well.
Camera & Other Features
Talking about cameras, we get triple camera setup on the back with 64MP, f/1.65 primary lens, 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro lens. No OIS here like Nord 2. For selfies, there a 16MP secondary camera. While the phone may have been solely focused for gamers, the camera performance of the phone should not be that bad to be honest.
There is a large 5065mAh battery with 67W fast charging. This was just a necessity for a gaming phone and Poco listened to us. Unlike Nord 2, F3 GT does come with IP53 dust and water resistance. There are 3 microphones setup with dual speakers tuned by JBL along with support for Dolby Atmos. Sadly, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint scanner is situated at the power button.
