POCO will be announcing the POCO F3 flagship phone on March 22 in global markets. Its Indian wing is scheduled to unleash the POCO X3 Pro smartphone on March 30. A fresh tweet by the brand suggests that the POCO X3 Pro may debut along with POCO F3 on coming Tuesday.
As seen in the screenshot above, the newly published tweet from POCO reads “POCO is UNLEASHING the beasts!”. If you notice, there’s an additional “s” behind the word beast which seems to suggest that the company will be launching more than one devices during the upcoming launch event.
While the POCO F3 is said to arrive as a rebranded version of the Redmi K40, which debuted in China in February, the rumor mill has yet to reveal any concrete information pertaining to the POCO X3 Pro.

It is unclear whether the POCO X3 Pro will be powered by a new Snapdragon 860 chip or the existing Snapdragon 855/855+ SoC. The device is expected to come with other specs like 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC, and Android 11 OS. In terms of appearance, it will look similar to the POCO X3 phone from last year. The X3 Pro may arrive in colors like Phantom Black, Frost Blue, and Metal Bronze. It may arrive with a starting price of 269 euros (~$321).
On the other side, the POCO F3 is expected to offer specs like a 120Hz 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel with an in-screen fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 870, 48-megapixel triple cameras, a 20-megapixel front camera, and a 4,520mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
