POCO X3 NFC : Powered By New Snapdragon 732G!

The POCO X3 NFC was just unveiled – the first smartphone to be built around the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G mobile platform!

Here’s what you need to know about the new POCO X3 NFC smartphone, including its price, deals and specifications!

 

POCO X3 NFC : Powered By New Snapdragon 732G!

Built around the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G mobile platform, the POCO X3 NFC smartphone promises to deliver high-end gaming performance at a fraction of the usual cost.

Gaming Performance

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G has two high speed Kryo 470 cores, with six low-powered cores, and an Adreno 618 Elite Gaming series GPU.

To ensure peak performance even during strenuous gaming sessions, it’s kept cool by an enlarged copper heat pipe with multiple layers of graphite – their LiquidCool Technology 1.0 Plus, which promises to reduce processor temperature by up to 6 degrees.

Complementing its gaming performance is a 120 Hz display with a 240 Hz touch sampling rate, to ensure both silky-smooth gameplay.

Gameplay also becomes more immersive, thanks to its integrated Z-axis linear motor, which delivers over 150 vibration modes for haptic feedback.

Cameras

In the front, the POCO X3 NFC has a 20 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, with a 4-in-1 Super Pixel capability – combining four pixels for better low-light performance.

In the back, it has a 64 MP main camera using the Sony IMX682 sensor and an f/1.89 aperture. It also supports 4-in-1 Super Pixel, for better low-light performance at ¼ the resolution.

This camera is also supported by a 2 MP depth sensor, to allow for more accurate software bokeh effects.

It also has two other cameras in the back – a 13 MP ultra-wide camera with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 2 MP macro camera, with f/2.4 aperture.

Battery

POCO X3 NFC promises to last up to two days on a single charge, thanks to its large 5,150 mAh. And it supports 33W fast charging, allowing it to be fully recharged in just 65 minutes.

Its increased charging speed is achieved through the Middle Middle Tab (MMT) technology, which delivers power to the battery in the middle, letting the module charge upwards and downwards simultaneously.

This allows for faster and more consistent charging speed, while ensuring better battery longevity, compared to traditional battery layouts.

The POCO X3 NFC is available from 9 September 2020 onwards, in two colour options – Shadow Gray and Cobalt Blue, in two variants :

  • 6 GB + 64 GB : RM 899 (about US$216 / £164 / A$297 / S$295)

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 | Note 10 Pro : 108MP Penta-Camera FTW?

Xiaomi just launched the Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro – two mobile photography beasts with five rear cameras, including a 108 MP camera!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the new Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro smartphones!

 

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 | Note 10 Pro : 108 MP Penta-Camera FTW?

Xiaomi is pulling out all the stops with both models, equipping them with 5 rear cameras, including a 108 MP Samsung HMX camera!

Let’s dive into their key features…

Penta Camera System with 108 MP Main Camera!

Their marquee feature is, without doubt, the penta camera system which consists of :

  • a 108 MP Samsung HMX camera (f/1.69 aperture) with OIS
  • a 12 MP telephoto camera with 2X zoom (f/2.0)
  • a 5 MP telephoto camera (f/2.0) with 5X zoom and OIS
  • a 20 MP wide-angle camera (f/2.2)
  • a 2 MP macro camera

The 108 MP main camera defaults to 27 MP, to ensure maximum image quality in low-light conditions, and smaller file sizes. There is an option to turn on 108 MP if you need the ultra-high resolution.

Incidentally, the Pro version uses a 8P lens design for its 108 MP shooter, while the standard version uses a 7P lens setup.

3D Curved AMOLED Display + Back

Both models come with a large 6.47-inch 3D curved AMOLED edge-to-edge display, with ultra-thin bezels.

Their backs are covered in 3D curved glass for a more comfortable grip and protection. They are protected in the front and back by Gorilla Glass 5.

Performance + Storage

Both models are built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, a mid-range mobile SoC which is also used by the Samsung Galaxy A80.

It has two fast Kryo 470 Gold cores at 2.2 GHz, six low-power Kryo 470 Silver cores at 1.7 GHz, and an Adreno 618 GPU running at 700 MHz.

The Mi Note 10 comes with 6 GB LPDDR4x memory, and 128 GB UFS 2.1 storage. The Pro version, on the other hand, has 8 GB LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB UFS 2.1 storage.
