Poco India has teased the launch of a new phone which is set to be the successor of the Poco F1.
Well, the brand has not mentioned the exact model but the rumors suggest that the new phone will be Poco X3 Pro. And it could launch on March 30th.
Poco X3 Pro
On March 10th, POCO tweeted an open letter to its fans which hints towards the launch of the successor of Poco F1. The letter also explains why the company has not been able to recreate phones like Poco F1.
Poco X3 Pro Launching as Poco F1’s Successor?
In the letter, Poco has left a lot of clues for its fans as certain texts are highlighted in bold. If you piece all of it together, then it hints towards the launch of the Poco X3 Pro. You can check out the post below.

The same post also explains the reason why Poco has not been able to produce devices like the Poco F1. Poco mentions that the cost of the components has grown rapidly along with the tax. And, that is sadly true!
If a phone is to rock a flagship chipset like the Snapdragon 865, its price will skyrocket immediately. As the new flagship chipsets come bundled with the 5G modem, the added cost makes it impossible to reproduce a phone like Poco F1. If you do not know, Poco F1 rocked a Snapdragon 845 chipset for Rs. 33,999. Impossible, Isn’t it?
That’s why Poco is releasing an X3 Pro. And I quote ‘After all, “only a POCO can beat a POCO!” The only difference being it’ll not be an F by the name but by the game!’ This exact sentence hints that the X3 Pro will come as a replacement for the Poco F1.
Poco X3 Pro Launch Date
And just today, Anuj Sharma, Country Director of POCO India also tweeted an image referring to the launch of a PRO device on March 30th. Furthermore, POCO themselves have been posting a lot of teasers on social media.
POCO X3 Rumored Specs and Launch Date
According to tipster Mukul Sharma (aka stufflistings), the Poco X3 Pro will feature an FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. And, it could most possibly rock an AMOLED panel.
It is also rumored to come with the unannounced Snapdragon 860 chipset which will be an improved version of the Snapdragon 855 SoC. Furthermore, it may come with a 5200mAh battery. As for the price, the X3 Pro could be priced well under INR 21,000.
Well, they are all rumors and we will have to wait until March 30 to see it for ourselves.
