The handset supports DC Dimming technology
The POCO F3 GT features a punch-hole design, an aerospace-grade aluminium alloy frame, a glass back panel, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor along with Maglev Triggers for gaming.

It is offered in Predator Black and Gunmetal Silver color options.
What are Maglev Triggers and how do they work?
The Maglev Triggers (magnetic levitation triggers) are miniaturized mechanical gaming buttons that sit flush with the frame when inactive and pop-up automatically when you activate them using the physical toggle button. You can then map these two triggers to any of the virtual buttons in a game for precise controls. The Maglev Triggers work with all games without any special integration.
