What Poco M3 brings for consumers
We are unsure if the Poco M3 Indian version will be similar to the global model. As far as the specifications are concerned, the Poco M3 comes packed with a 6.53-inch full-HD+ display that offers resolution of 1,080×2,340 pixels. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor paired with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM. In India, the company could bring more RAM options given how important gaming is for consumers out there. The global model of the phone is available in two storage versions including 64GB and 128GB. We will need to wait for the company to reveal details related to the Indian variants of the smartphone.
One of the key highlights of the Poco M3 is the massive 6000mAh battery onboard with support for 18W fast charging. For security, the phone including side-mounted fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock support.
As far as the optics are concerned, the phone includes a triple camera rear setup including a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 2-megapixel secondary sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, the phone features an 8-megapixel image sensor.
