Sales will commence July 26, and until August 2, buyers will get a Rs 1,000 discount. Between August 3 and 9, buyers will get a Rs 500 discount. Each discount will be applicable for all the three variants of the phone.

Key specifications

The Poco F3 GT is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, along with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. Up front, it gets a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate. It reportedly features a vapour chamber with ‘white graphene’ heat sink, which should help in long gaming sessions. There is also a 64MP triple rear camera setup, and a 5,065mAh battery pack with 67W fast charging in tow. Poco has claimed that 15 minutes of charge time should be enough to offer “one day” of usage.

The Poco F3 GT is reportedly built of aircraft grade aluminium, and features ‘Maglev’ triggers for an enhanced gaming experience. The company has also made optimisations such as an L-shaped charging cable, which will apparently ensure ease of charging while gaming. It will also come with a ‘Game Turbo’ mode in its MIUI 12.5 software based on Android 11, for optimised gaming. It also has a centered selfie camera in a drill hole slot, and the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top for screen protection.
