It gets a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 663 processor and comes in two RAM/Storage variants: 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB, both options being expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card.
On the camera front, there are three rear cameras: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It comes with an 8-megapixel front camera. The 6,000mAh battery supports 18W fast charging. The smartphone runs MIUI 12 with Poco Launcher based on Android 10. Additionally, there is support for AI Face Unlock along with the fingerprint sensor.
The Poco M3 is a direct competitor to the Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power, considering both phones fall in the same price category and share a resemblance in terms of the spec sheet.
Should you buy it?
The Poco M3, with a massive battery, a focus on the cameras, fast charging, two biometric authentication methods, and an attractive design, becomes a smartphone that is worth going for when you just have to spend Rs 10,999 (which is the starting price).
While it gets tough competition from the Redmi 9 Power, your urge to get into the Poco ecosystem on a budget is enough a reason to go for it.
