Prior to the official launch of the POCO F3 GT in India, a company executive has revealed the pricing of the device. The device is the second F series model arriving in India from the company and will launch around the 400 US Dollars mark.
Previously, the Chinese smartphone maker had stated that the handset will launch sometime in the third quarter of this year. And now, Anuj Sharma, the Country Director of POCO India officially revealed to India Today that the device will launch in the region sometime later this month.

The executive revealed that the original launch window was set between August and September 2021 but the device is confirmed to arrive on July 23, earlier than its initial plans.
The senior official also revealed information regarding the F3 GT’s pricing to India Today. It will launch later this month for a price of around 30,000 INR (roughly about 402 US Dollars). In other words, we can expect multiple variants arriving either under or above the 30,000 INR mark.
Although, Anuj confirmed that the upcoming device’s top end variant will be priced under 35,000 INR (roughly 470 US Dollars), making it competitive in the segment that it is targeting.
Notably, its 23rd July 2021 launch date is also close with the OnePlus Nord 2 announcement, which the company had recently trolled as well. Both smartphones feature the same MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC.
POCO also confirmed certain other specs for the upcoming smartphone, this includes an AMOLED display that supports HDR10+ and 120Hz refresh rate. It will also arrive in two color variants, namely Gunmetal Silver and Predator Black, and offer Dual Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos.
Anuj added that “The smartphone market has changed a lot in last three years. We could have done a simple F1 successor which means cut out everything else and give performance. But, in the mid-premium segment users are not happy with one aspect.
Things like the build quality, glass back are all expensive. This would make the Poco F3 GT a lot more expensive than Poco F1 but at the price, will be unlike any other phone.”
