Poco has today officially announced its latest budget phone at a virtual global launch event. The new POCO X3 NFC is a successor to the POCO X2 that was launched in February this year. Unlike its predecessor, however, the POCO X3 NFC is not a rebranded version of any existing Redmi phone. The POCO X3 NFC will go on sale in the UK from September 17 in Shadow Gray and Cobalt Blue colors. In Europe, however, consumers will be able to purchase the phone starting tomorrow. While the 6GB/64GB version of the X3 NFC has been priced at €229, the 6GB/128GB version will cost €269.
