POCO is all set to launch their POCO M4 Pro 5G globally on November 9, 2021. Now, the POCO F3 Refresh has been officially teased to launch on the same date as well. POCO took to their official Twitter handle to reveal the poster for the smartphone’s launch event. The standard F3 model went official earlier this year and now, we can look forward to the device getting a ‘Refresh’.
We do not get to see any tease in terms of design but, we get to see tagline that says, “The real beast is coming back”. On top of the tagline, we can see the POCO F3 moniker. Noted tipster Mukul Sharma and a bunch of other tipsters are terming it the POCO F3 Refresh. We can expect to see the device arrive with a bunch of improvements over its predecessor.
Now, in terms of the POCO F3 Refresh specs, nothing can be said right now. The company has been pretty hush about the entire thing. However, the official launch is tomorrow itself so, we will get to know everything then. Meanwhile, here’s a quick flashback of the POCO F3 specs.
POCO F3 Specifications
Starting off with the display, the smartphone comes with a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED. In addition, the display features a fast 120Hz refresh rate alongside 360Hz touch sampling rate. When it comes to software, the device runs on Android 11 OS with the MIUI 12 custom skin on top. The POCO F3 Refresh can be expected to arrive with MIUI 12.5 instead. Moreover, we can expect to see a similar or slightly larger display as well.
On the processor front, the standard F3 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. The octa-core chipset is paired with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. We can expect to see the F3 Refresh coming with a slightly better processor, maybe, Snapdragon 888 SoC.
