POCO X3 NFC becomes a new hype. Thanks to its affordable price for a mid-range, near-to-flagship, NFC-available phone.
First released in India, POCO X3 has now been released worldwide. Even Mi fans living in Southeast Asia can now have the NFC phone.
The phone that has codename Surya is now one of enthusiast-friendly Android phones.
This has been proven by the release of Mauronofrio’s TWRP, the first unofficial recovery for POCO X3 NFC.
The device boasts SM7150-AC Snapdragon 732G which is a 8nm chipset by Qualcomm. The SoC comes with Octa-core CPU consisting of 2x 2.3GHz Kryo 470 Gold and 6x 1.8GHz Kryo 470 Silver processors.
Even its official performance benchmark is stunning: AnTuTu: 283750 (v8), GeekBench: 1777 (v5.1), and GFXBench: 16fps (ES 3.1 onscreen).
Putting aside all of other aspects in the specs sheet, the SoC and CPUs are already overwhelming for most enthusiast users, especially gamers.
Now those users need to thank to Mauronofrio.
He has managed to release the first working build of TWRP for this lovely device.

How to Install
Flashing this build is similar to the way you flash an official TWRP.
You’ll need your device’s bootloader unlocked, ADB Fastboot being installed on your PC, and of course a USB cable to connect your phone with your PC.
Follow our previous guide here to unlock Poco X3 bootloader.
Next, download and install ADB Fastboot USB drivers.
Download TWRP .IMG file and place it in the ADB folder.
Rename the image file from this (example, whatever the xxx are)
Open a Command Prompt window right inside the ADB folder.
Then issue these lines of command:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot boot twrp.img
In case if the last command doesn’t work, you can also use this to reboot your phone to TWRP recovery for the very first time:
fastboot oem reboot-recovery
Your Poco X3 is now rebooting to recovery mode.
Do the Slide to Allow System Modifications
From here, you can go even further like flashing Magisk, a custom ROM, a custom kernel, etc.
