Build and Design
The F3 GT is a big phone with a large screen, smaller bezels, and great looking body. It has a dimension of 161.9 x 76.9 mm and 8.3 mm thickness. The phone has a premium glass and metal construction with gaming aesthetics. For example, there is Tactical RGB glow light around the back camera, thunderbolt design flash LED, and Maglev trigger buttons. These are special buttons that also open “Game Turbo” mode. The new special trigger buttons are placed at the right side of the frame to help in gaming. As gaming is mostly done in landscape mode, these buttons help by working as extra inputs. These can be mapped in the game turbo settings for ease.
It is not all about the aesthetics of the gaming look. By the way, F3 GT also has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the backside which protects from scratches and drops. There is also IP53 certification which means there is a good amount of dust and splash protection.

The phone comes with 6 GB RAM for the base model and 8 GB RAM for the top-end model. Poco binds 128 GB storage for both 6/8 GB models but 256 GB storage only with the 8 GB model. One thing to notice is that there is no micro SD card support. The Dimensity 1200 is a new chipset with 6 nm lithography and it is a processor made for performance. All of this is getting power from a 5065 mAh battery.
This is a fast processor and it is meant for gaming which means there is a lot of heat generation. Therefore there is a big 11540 mm2 vapor chamber for cooling. In addition, there are 8 layers of graphite with the aerospace-grade white graphene layer on the inside. Graphite is a good conductor of heat and electricity.
