POCO X3 with 64MP camera, 5160mAh battery, 33W fast charging is the next smartphone from POCO

Late last month, we learned that Xiaomi’s spin-off brand POCO was planning on rebranding the international Redmi 9C as a new POCO device for the Indian market. Then, just a few days ago, we spotted the upcoming POCO C3 in a Bluetooth certification listing with the same model number as the Redmi 9C, which further confirmed our suspicions. But while POCO is yet to announce the POCO C3 officially, we’ve now spotted another upcoming POCO device, which might be the successor to the mid-range POCO X2 from earlier this year. The device, which is expected to go by the POCO X3 moniker, was recently spotted in a certification listing.

POCO X3 back panel design

The certification listing in question can be found on certifications aggregator FCCID’s website, and it reveals some key details about the upcoming device. As per the listing, the upcoming POCO device will go by the model number M2007J20CG, and it will feature a new back panel design that doesn’t resemble any existing Xiaomi smartphone. The image attached in the certification listing (see above) showcases a device with a rectangular camera module with rounded edges, large POCO branding in the center, and what looks to be some form of a textured finish. The image also reveals that the device will feature a 64MP primary camera.

We’ve also unearthed an RF test report of the device, which further reveals that it will run MIUI 12 out of the box, and it will be accompanied by another device with the model number M2007J20CT. A SAR test report for the device spotted by @_the_tech_guy on Twitter reveals that it will feature a 5,160mAh battery with support for 33W fast wired charging. The report also mentions both the model numbers, which leads us to believe that the device will be offered in two different SKUs. While none of the listings mentioned above state the marketing name for the device, our internal sources suggest that the device will be called the POCO X3.

As of now, we have no official information from POCO regarding the POCO X3. We’ll update this post as soon as we learn more about the upcoming smartphone.
