Out of the several leaks that have been going around about the Poco F3 GT, the standout leaks that have been commonly reported accross several sites and blogs include a Mediatek Dimensity 1200 SOC, Very Fast 67W Charging, 5000+ MAH Battery and a triple camera setup.
This smartphone is allegedly said to launch sometime in August according to a lot of reports. There is another smartphone from Xiaomi called the Xiaomi Redmi K40 (Game Enhanced Edition), this smartphone is unfortunately sold only in China. So, many speculate this smartphone to be rebranded version of that Redmi K40 smartphone, with little changes or just some minor changes.
However, we can say for almost one hundred sure that this smartphone will come equipped with the flagship Mediatek Dimensity 1200 SOC, which is a better chip than the Apple A12 Bionic and is almost equal to the Snapdragon 870 SOC in performance, so it will be a really good performer. This phone will be targeted towards gamers and power users.
