The Poco M3 also has a triple camera setup along with a high-capacity 6,000mAh battery to boot. Let’s take a brief look at the pricing and specifications of the Poco M3.
Poco M3 has a plastic build and textured back panel that the company says is its anti-fingerprint design along with an extended camera module. The phone is 9.6 millimetres at the thickest point and weighs 198 grams. It is being offered in Cool Blue, Poco Yellow and Power Black colours to choose from.
The Poco M3 features a 6.53-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution display with a waterdrop notch cutout for the selfie camera. This gives the screen a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and is further topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3.
It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 610 GPU. This is paired with 4GB RAM and upto 128GB storage variants. Additionally, there is an option of expanding the storage further by using a microSD card. It runs on MIUI 12 based on Android 10 with the Poco Launcher.
The Poco M3 has a triple camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 48MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera housed within the notch cutout. The rear camera can record videos in 1080p at 30FPS.
The phone has stereo speakers and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. It is fitted with a 6,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. Poco claims that the M3 is capable of lasting 40 hours on calling or 196 hours of music playback or 17 hours of video viewing.
The Poco M3 is priced starting at $149 for the base model with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and $169 for the 128GB storage variant. This pegs the India pricing to start somewhere at Rs 11,000 by direct conversion. There is no official word on the India launch of Poco M3 yet but we expect the company to launch it in the country soon.
