Rumors that one or more models of Redmi’s new K40 series would launch globally under POCO brand have persisted since Redmi officially launched its new K40 series in China last week, with previous certifications confirming this.
Now that the phone has also been certified by the US FCC, POCO F3 will be available as an overseas version of Redmi k40. If nothing goes wrong, there is likely to be a Poco F3 Pro, presumably Redmi k40 Pro or K40 Pro+, but there is no information on that yet.
Back to Poco F3, this model, like the Redmi K40, uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 chipset, supports 5G, has 6-12GB of RAM, offers 128/256GB of storage, and does not support scaling. There are three cameras on the rear, including a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera and a 5MP macro camera, and a 20MP camera for selfies. The phone has a 4,520 mAh battery capacity and a quick 33W charge (zero to full in an hour).
The screen is 6.67-inch 1080×2400 120Hz Super AMOLED, covering Gorilla Glass 5, running MIUI 12 system based on Android 11. The launch date of the overseas version of the phone is still unknown.
