Poco M3 Pro 5G: Design, features
While leaked renders showed the Poco M3 Pro 5G design from every angle, Poco confirmed the details a week later. The new Poco phone will flaunt a sleek profile with a tall form factor. The camera island rests on the upper left corner and has a different shade that gives an appealing look to the device. The triple-camera system is stacked vertically with the Poco branding inscribed below it. The power button which is expected to trigger as a fingerprint sensor is placed on the right edge with volume keys sitting above it on the frame. While the design is a tad bit different compared to the Poco M3, the new Poco M3 Pro will retain the signature Poco yellow colour coat. The handset will be available in Black, and Blue colour options as well. Upfront, the new Poco phone has a punch-hole-style display with a thick chin.

The Redmi Note 5G was launched starting at $199 (around Rs 14,600) for the base variant with 4GB RAM/64GB native storage.

As for the specifications, the Poco M3 Pro will feature a 6.5-inch FHD+ LCD display with a punch-hole cutout to accommodate the front-facing camera.

The phone will come with 4GB of RAM (standard) and up to 128GB UFS 2.2 internal storage. It is expected to run MIUI 12 based Android 11 OS.
In terms of optics, the Poco M3 Pro will offer a triple rear camera array with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. For selfies and video calls, it has an 8-megapixel shooter. The Poco M3 Pro 5G will be backed by a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charge support. Besides 5G support, the phone is expected to offer dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS, USB-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack under its connectivity suite.
