Announcement. POCO F3 is like Redmi K40, but you can buy it for $ 299 ?!

So, Xiaomi has announced the POCO F3 smartphone. As expected, we have before us a global copy of the already actively sold “Chinese” Redmi K40.

I want to start with the interesting, I want to start with the price. As you can easily see, Redmi K40 can be bought on AliExpress. $ 449 (₽34,100) for the 6 + 128 GB version and $ 539 (₽41,000) for the 8 + 256 GB version.

And POCO F3 "early birds" will be able to buy a littlecheaper. For $ 299 (₽22,700) and $ 349 (₽26500), respectively. Feel the difference. The start of the attraction of unprecedented generosity is on March 29. Apparently, it makes sense to take a walk and add the device to the basket. Something seems to me that this generosity will not last long.

Well, briefly about the smartphone.

Flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset, in the region of 650 thousand AnTuTu points.

I have already said about the memory, 6 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of constant. Apparently, there is no support for memory cards, like the Redmi K40. Although for some reason it is listed on AliExpress.

The screen is huge, 6.67 ″. AMOLED-matrix with a resolution of 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). Ultra-high refresh rate - 120 Hz. The polling rate of the sensor is generally 360 Hz.

Medium battery, 4520 mAh. Charging at 33 watts. A full charge from zero to 100% takes less than an hour.

Cameras. The main module is a 48 MP Sony IMX582. Auxiliary - 8 MP shirik and 5 MP telemacro. There is no talk of any fancy periscopes. Front camera - 20 MP.

There are already a couple of "first glances" in English, you can see examples of photos.

First glances

NFC is there, 5G is, Wi-Fi 6 is, Type-C is.Plus there are stereo speakers and even an IR transmitter to control all kinds of TVs. And even the fingerprint scanner is correct, sideways, not subscreen.

It seems that we should take ... Which color do you like best?

P.S. POCO F3 will be officially sold in Russia after a while - we can assume that this has already been officially confirmed. But the price is unlikely to be as tasty.
