POCO X3 Pro outed with a Snapdragon 860 SoC, a 5,160 mAh battery and a 120 Hz AMOLED display; Xiaomi could be re-using components from the Redmi Note 10 series
POCO has teased that the X3 Pro will arrive on March 30, albeit probably only in India. In advance of that, Xiaomi & MIUI News has alleged to have obtained specifications about a Xiaomi smartphone by the model name 'J20S'. While the Telegram channel published this information in January, it flew under the radar somewhat. However, knowing that the X3 Pro is the M2102J20SG, it seems that Xiaomi & MIUI News may have revealed multiple details about POCO's next smartphone.
According to the leak, the POCO X3 Pro will have a Snapdragon 860 SoC, which is thought to be a cutdown version of the Snapdragon 865 or the Snapdragon 870. Additionally, Xiaomi & MIUI News describes the 'J20S' as having an AMOLED display that runs at 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a 120 Hz peak refresh rate. Meanwhile, a 5,160 mAh battery is expected to complement this high-end display, as are four rear-facing cameras consisting of a 48 MP primary sensor, an ultra-wide, a macro and a depth camera. There will be no OIS support on any of these cameras, though.
Comparing these specifications against recent Xiaomi smartphones suggests that the POCO X3 Pro may share a few components with the Redmi Note 10 series. The displays in the Redmi Note 10 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max match that of the 'J20S', which Xiaomi protects with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Moreover, the quad-camera arrangement in the 'J20S' mirrors the one Xiaomi uses in the Redmi Note 10. If Xiaomi is re-using the cameras from the Redmi Note 10 in the POCO X3 Pro, then expect to see an 8 MP ultra-wide and dual 2 MP cameras dovetail the device's 48 MP primary camera.
The POCO X3 Pro should eventually launch in multiple regions, including in India and the EU. @Sudhanshu1414 expects the device to start at €250 in the latter, with its price rising to €300 for a configuration with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
