POCO just launched the POCO F3 GT, the company’s first gaming smartphone in India, as it had promised.

It is powered by 6nm Dimensity 1200 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM.

The phone has an 8-layer graphite layers combined with super-large vapor chambers, and new aerospace-grade heat dissipation material with a built-in “white graphene” layer that covers 11540mm², which not only efficiently dissipates heat for the charging chip, but also offers good insulation to reduce its impact on nearby antennas to reduce the temperature by 2°C. It will come with triple microphones and triple Wi-Fi setup that includes two conventional and one Wi-Fi gaming antenna group.

The phone features a glass body with Slipstream Design and anti-fingerprint matte finish, and an aerospace-grade aluminum alloy frame with three styles of bevels that includes a square bevel on the sides and a concave bevel on the top.
