The POCO F3 GT launch in India has been confirmed. POCO India Country Director, Anuj Sharma tweeted that the upcoming F-series phone is close. The smartphone is slated to launch in the third quarter of the year.
The upcoming POCO F3 GT will be the brand’s second phone under the F-series in India. Till date, there is only POCO F1 available in the country that debuted way back in 2018. It’s unclear whether the F3 GT will arrive as the successor to the F1, which was the most affordable flagship of its time.
"Locked & loaded, finger on the triggers" The next F is closer than ever.

The tweet also includes a video teaser of the POCO F3 GT. It reveals that the smartphone will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor and also come with 5G support. As per previous reports, the POCO F3 GT is tipped to arrive as a rebranded version of the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition in China. If this turns out to be true, then the upcoming offering could come with the same specifications. The POCO F3 is already available in global markets as a rebranded Redmi K40.
