Poco X3 users can now record calls on their smartphones. Poco announced on Twitter that the much-awaited call-recording feature has been enabled on Poco X3. The smartphone was launched in India in September and is available in three RAM and storage configurations. It is available in Cobalt Blue and Shadow Grey colour variants. The Poco smartphone is a successor to Poco X2 that was launched in February this year.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi phones have reportedly been facing an issue that puts their phones into a bootloop, making them restart again and again. Poco X3 is reportedly one of the affected phones, besides Mi 10, Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and more.
The problem emerged after the phones receive an error that reads, “Find Device closed unexpectedly.” Xiaomi noted that the issue emerged due to certain lines of code misbehaving during an app update. Phones running MIUI 12.05 Global Stable ROM seem to have primarily impacted due to the issue. Some users also reportedly lost their data as they had to reset their phones.
