Poco M3 Features, Specs, Price
Since the Poco M3 has already been made official last year, we have a fair idea as to what all the smartphone comes with. It gets a rectangular section at the top of the rear panel that houses the vertical triple rear cameras, LED flash, and the ‘Poco’ branding.
Upfront, the phone gets a 6.53-inch Full HD+ Dot Drop display, which accommodates a waterdrop notch. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor with Adreno 610 GPU. For the global markets, the Poco M3 is available in two RAM/Storage options: 4GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB. However, we don’t know how many variants the Poco M3 will get in India.
On the camera front, the Poco M3 features three rear cameras: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is an 8-megapixel front snapper.
The smartphone gets its fuel from a 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging and runs MIUI 12 with Poco Launcher based on Android 10. Additionally, there is support for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and Face Unlock feature.
The Poco M3 comes in Poco Yellow, Cool Blue, and Power Black colors. However, there is no word on how many color options make it to the Indian shores.
As for the pricing, we don’t have an official word on it. But, considering it starts at $149 (around Rs 11,000) globally, the Poco M3 is expected to fall under Rs 15,000 and be a budget smartphone.
