The Chinese smartphone maker Poco has been revealed launch date of its new F series smartphone Poco F3 GT in India. After the multiple teasers and promotional tweets of the smartphone, now the company has been revealed the launched date of the Poco F3 GT. The company confirmed that the Poco F3 GT will launch on July 23 at 12pm (noon). The Poco F3 GT is rumoured to be the rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition released in China in April as a gaming variant of the Redmi K40. The phone will be the first Poco brand to feature a 120Hz refresh rate display.
According to the teaser, you’ll see a poster with the Call of Duty Mobile theme in the background. This means that the new POCO F3 GT suggests a special focus on the game. This is not surprising given that the handset is speculated to be a rebrand of the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition.
