A couple of months ago, Redmi unveiled its very first gaming smartphone in the form of Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition. While the device was announced only in China, we all knew that its arrival on other markets like India was just a matter of time. During the past few months we saw many rumors suggesting the arrival of a POCO F3 GT smartphone in India. This device would bring the same specifications and possible the design of the Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition. The device was rumored for this quarter, and after many leaks, POCO India decided to confirm. The POCO F3 GT will go official on July 23 in India.

POCO India decided to make a very brief post where the big star is the POCO F3 GT. The new gaming smartphone is just one week away from getting an official release in the country. Unfortunately, we don’t know if the POCO Global will also unveil this device for other markets at the same date.
POCO F3 GT specifications and features
One time that the POCO F3 GT is just a rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition we know most of its specifications. The gaming-oriented smartphone packs a 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution. The panel also offers 120 Hz of refresh rate and has a 480 Hz touch sampling rate for a smooth experience while gaming. The panel also sports a centered punch-hole and is HDR 10+ certified.
Under the hood, the POCO F3 GT will pack a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. It comprises one ARM Cortex-A78 core clocked at up to 3 GHz, and three ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.6 GHz and six power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. The chipset also brings a powerful Mali-G78 GPU with nine cores. The SoC boasts cutting edge 6 nm architecture. To ensure long-gaming sessions with stable performance, the company developed a vapor cooling technology to keep heat away.
In terms of optics, the handset sports a 64 MP triple-rear camera setup with a pulsating ambient light around the module. This can be used as a notification LED. The secondary camera is an 8 MP ultrawide angle camera, while the tertiary sensor is a 2 MP macro shooter. Selfie lovers will be served with a 16 MP shooter.
The POCO F3 GT draws power from a 5,065mAh battery with 67W fast-charging. It also sports JBL-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio. The original smartphone is available in Shadow, Light Blade, Silver Wing colorways as well as a special Bruce Lee edition. We don’t know if all these colorways will get a “POCO” treatment yet.
