Poco has done it once again. Fans have been long awaiting a worthy successor to the Poco F1 released back in 2018 with the flagship Snapdragon 845 processor.
The F1 brought top-of-the-line performance to the masses at a ridiculously low price. Sure, some corners had been cut to make the device a reality but it was all definitely worth it.
However, the brand took a lengthy break following that and shifted its focus towards the budget segment with seemingly no plans to launch a worthy successor. But that changed when the Poco X3 Pro came into the picture.
The device comes with the flagship-grade Snapdragon 860 processor. The chip is essentially a beefed-up version of Qualcomm’s champ from 2019 – the Snapdragon 855.
But what Poco did differently this time around was not cutting too many corners and instead fitting the Poco X3 Pro with stuff like a 120Hz HDR10 display, a 48MP camera, and even a 240Hz touch sampling rate.
Still, it is not possible to sell a device with a processor like the Snapdragon 860 for cheap without some cost cuttings. And with the Poco X3 Pro, it is a plastic back panel.
Perhaps, that is the primary reason why the device rattles/vibrates when audio is played from the speakers. This gives the impression of a cheap build with bad structural integrity. It’s also just plain annoying.
Some users even began to think that their unit is faulty and needs to be replaced. But as expected, requests for a replacement were turned down by support.
Thankfully, it appears that the Poco X3 Pro back panel vibration isn’t exactly a hardware one as Poco has now informed that they’re already working on a fix. This should come in the form of a future software update.
We aren’t too sure how the company will reduce the Poco X3 Pro back-panel vibration issue without reducing speaker loudness or impacting the audio quality.
But let’s just wait and see how it actually plays out before jumping to conclusions. For now, stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
