It also has other attractive specs such as the 6GB LPDDR4X RAM, up to 128GB UFS 2.1 expandable storage, 20MP selfie camera, IR Blaster, IP54 water splash resistance, stereo speakers, Hi-Res Audio, and Z-axis linear vibration motor. Most of these features are rare at this price point.

As of the moment

The POCO X3 NFC is a very strong contender for the price and the company's product tagline saying that this handset is "everything that you need" for the price.

The POCO X3 NFC is a near-complete handset for the price and it has a lot of good things to boast. The handset is not perfect, but this is a loaded device and it will be very hard to find a handset rocking better overall specs and set of features than this handset.

Most of our initial complaints are just nitpicks.

The handset impressed us with its build, screen, speed, battery, audio, and cameras out of the box.

Of course, we will be doing a full written review, so stay tuned!
