To be the best gamer in the lobby doesn’t mean you have to have the most expensive gaming phone on the market. The newest smartphone that is raging up a storm is the POCO F3 GT, a budget gaming phone that aims to bring all the top notch features of gaming smartphones in an affordable package. The POCO F3 GT is expected to launch in India on July 23, 2021.
Some gamer centric features on the POCO F3 GT include shoulder buttons, a high touch sampling display, dual stereo speakers, vapor chamber cooling, and a large battery to augment your gaming experience. Since this is set to be a budget gaming phone, it will shake up expectations, so here’s what to expect from it.
POCO F3 GT: Enhanced Game Control
The POCO F3 GT will sport a ‘Slipstream Design’ which makes way for dual shoulder buttons on the top left and right of the phone. These triggers are a common find on more expensive gaming phones. It is great to see an upcoming budget gaming phone offer similar functionality.
These triggers will be highly useful in shooter games such as Free Fire, Call of Duty Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India as they can be mapped to the ADS (aim down sights) and Fire buttons. Along with the triggers, there are also switches which Xiaomi is calling GT Switches. These switches let you pick if the triggers will have a tactile feedback or not.
POCO F3 GT: Gaming Display

The POCO F3 GT is expected to sport a display with a high touch sampling rate of 480Hz. This will enable quick response to user inputs on the screen, meaning there is no lag between you pressing the shoot button and your in-game character reacting to the button press. Readers should note that this is different from the phone’s screen refresh rate which is confirmed to be 120Hz. Incidentally, it will also feature a Turbo AMOLED screen, making for richer visuals when gaming.
POCO F3 GT: Power Packed Gaming Performance
To ensure optimal gaming performance, the smartphone will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset.
Towards the same goal is the cooling mechanism of the gaming smartphone- it will feature a vapor chamber cooler design which makes for efficient and optimal cooling, keeping internals running at an even temperature no matter how taxing your games get. This will enable longer life of the phone itself and overall better performance when gaming for long hours.
POCO F3 GT: Other Gaming Features
Here’s a list of just some of the other features on the phone which will make gaming a more enjoyable experience on this phone:
- Dual stereo speakers that enable Dolby Atmos sound, making for more immersive and dynamic sounds.
- RGB Gamer lights around the camera and attribute towards the unique look on the phone.
- A large 5065 mAH battery along with an L-shaped charging cable, making it easier to charge and game at the same time.
- 3 wi-fi antennas resulting in better and more stable ping.
- 3 microphones to ensure that your callouts are always loud and clear for your teammates.
POCO F3 GT: Price and Availability in India
The POCO F3 GT will launch in India on 23 July, 2021. It is expected to be a budget gaming smartphone, so it should be priced around the INR 30,000 price range, but all the details will be clarified once the phone launches tomorrow. As of now, there is no word on the variants and the configurations available either.
However, it is known that the phone will be available in two colours- Predator Black and Gunmetal Silver along with some interesting back designs.
