There’s a notification LED hidden in the speaker grille right at the top, but while this is a popular feature, it isn’t really visible unless you’re looking at this phone head-on. The Poco X3 Pro ships with MIUI 12 based on Android 11, with Poco UI on the top. However, the differences between Poco’s UI and MIUI on Redmi phones have almost completely dissolved, and I can’t point out a single feature that’s not available on Redmi phones. One difference I could find is that Poco UI doesn’t have the Google Discover feed to the left of the homescreen.
This is an HDR10-compatible 120Hz refresh rate IPS LCD with pretty good color accuracy. To top it off it does get plenty bright for reasonably good outdoor visibility. But side by side you can see how much better the AMOLED display panel on the Poco F3 is.

Other notable features include an IR blaster at the top, as is the case with most Xiaomi phones. Along the bottom edge is a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, download the stock firmware as well as stereo speakers. They aren’t the loudest I’ve come across either but they’ll suffice in a pinch. Mid-range competition in the smartphone industry is tough, and it’s not easy for any handset to stand out.
- In some cases the device might not be unbricked with this tool, for example if it is hard-bricked.
- Unfortunately, the performance sometimes drops significantly under load.
- To exit the Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro download mode screen, you can restart your device by using the Volume Down key or Soft Reset method.
- With the “Android 12 – 13 Eligibility Check” and “MIUI 13 Eligibility Check” menus, you can check which update your selected device will receive or not.
