Ever since the launch of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition, there rumors regarding its availability in the Indian market. Rumors were rife that the company will toss the device in as a rebranded phone in the region and it could be called the Poco F3 GT. Today, Poco India on its Twitter handle has shared a teaser video of its upcoming powerful device and it is none other than the Poco F3 GT.
Poco F3 GT Launch Details and Availability
According to the video, the device will fuel the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1200 chipset under the hood. It seems that the much-awaited gaming phone from the company will finally arrive in India in the form of the Poco F3 GT.
Notably, the video has the moniker ‘Poco F3’ instead of Poco F3 GT, which makes us think whether it would really be termed ‘GT’ or it would just be the F3 considering that the Indian market has not received the original Poco F3.
Aside from this, there’s nothing else to consider apart from the tags “Locked & loaded, finger on the trigger”. Well, this confirms the shoulder triggers present on the smartphone.
In terms of the arrival, the video confirms the smartphone to debut by Q3 this year. With that said, we can expect the phone to launch next month.
