Poco F3 GT India launch confirmed, teaser hints it is a rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition

Poco F3 GT will be Xiaomi spin-off brand Poco’s next solution in India. Poco made the announcement on Friday via a 30-second video confirming one important element of the phone, presence of MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, though teasing one more feature, that is retractable shoulder buttons. Basis of this information and facts, it is all but particular that the Poco F3 GT will be a rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition that was launched lately in China.

We do not know when precisely will Poco launch the Poco F3 GT in India although. All that Poco is sharing at this point of time is, the phone will arrive sometime in Q3 2021 – so it could arrive in July at the earliest but then once more, we can not say for sure but.

There have been speculations floating about the net about Poco’s next phone, and though some mentioned, it will be the Poco M3 Pro 5G, other people have claimed the brand may possibly rebadge the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition for India quickly and launch it in the name of Poco F3 GT. While there is no word on the Poco M3 Pro 5G but (although Poco India director Anuj Sharma did confirm to TheSpuzz Online exclusively that they will launch a 5G phone in India this year), it appears rumours of Redmi K40 Gaming Edition coming to India in one more name may well be spot-on.

One of the important USP of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition is that it packs MediaTek’s flagship Dimensity 1200 chip, the other is that it comes with retractable shoulder buttons – it is Redmi’s initially gaming phone in China. The Poco F3 GT will also come with the exact same chip and Poco has hinted that it will have “triggers”.

If at all the Poco F3 GT is a rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, we are hunting at a 6.67-inch 1080p AMOLED show with a 120Hz refresh price (480Hz touch sampling) and HDR10+ assistance, up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage, 5,065mAh battery with 67W quick charging, dual stereo speakers tuned by JBL and an exhaustive thermal technique which is a mixture of graphene, graphite and vapour chamber cooling. The phone is also IP53 certified.

In China, the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition begins at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 23,000) for the base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

If history is something to go by, Poco may well launch the phone in India with some tweaks right here and there. More facts are awaited.
