Several reports have claimed that POCO’s next smartphone for India will be called the POCO F3 GT. Today, POCO India released the first teaser of the smartphone to confirm its moniker. The teaser revealed that the POCO F3 GT will be powered by the Dimensity 1200 chipset.
The teaser ends by saying that the note ‘Q3 coming soon.” This indicates that the POCO F3 GT may break cover in July. It appears that the smartphone could be a rebranded version of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, which was announced in China last month.
The Redmi K40 Gaming Edition is the first gaming-centric smartphone from Redmi. It comes with RGB lighting around the rear cameras, and it has mechanical pop-up gaming shoulder buttons. There is a possibility that the POCO F3 GT may include the same specs as K40 Gaming, but it may flaunt a different design.
