After rebranding Redmi K40 as the Poco F3 for global markets, the company has now rebranded Redmi K40 Gaming Edition as the Poco F3 GT for the Indian market today. This is a gaming phone from the company and here are the specifications and pricing of the device.
Poco F3 GT: Specifications
Poco F3 GT features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ Samsung E4 AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate. You get up to 1300 nits of peak brightness, HDR10+, and DCI-P3 color gamut support with this display. The device is protected with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back.

Talking about the gaming-centric features, the Poco F3 GT packs what the company calls Maglev triggers.
