The POCO F3 will launch tomorrow alongside the POCO X3 Pro. It has been reported that POCO will be rebadging the phone that launched as the Redmi K40 in China, and now leaked press renders have confirmed it.
The photo was shared on Twitter by Ishan Agarwal, the popular and reliable young leaker. It shows the POCO F3 in three color variants, one of which seems to be a special edition due to its different finish and paint job.
The phone has a display with a centered punch hole and curved corners. The camera housing is home to three rear cameras, and if you zoom in close, you can make out the text that reads ”48MP AI TRIPLE CAMERA“.
POCO will make the phone available in Black, White, and a special edition Blue that has different finishes and a large POCO logo printed across the back. According to the leaker, there is a Snapdragon 870 chipset inside it. The phone also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Will be launching with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G Chipset.

We are not surprised POCO is rebadging the Redmi K40 this year. Last year, its POCO F2 Pro was a rebadge of the Redmi K30 Pro and the only differences between the two were the supported network bands and RAM and storage configuration. we expect a similar situation for the POCO F3.
The POCO F3 should have a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display. The Snapdragon 870 processor will most likely be paired with up to 8GB of RAM as we don’t expect POCO to launch a 12GB RAM version. Alongside the 48MP primary rear camera should be an 8MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 5MP macro camera. A 20MP sensor will sit in front for selfies.
Other specifications and features are a 4520mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging, NFC, IR blaster, stereo speakers, and Android 11 pre-installed.
The phone will launch alongside the POCO F3 which is scheduled to be unveiled tomorrow as seen in the invite above. The invite is reported to have been sent out by Xiaomi Vietnam and was shared on Twitter (via @chunvn888).
