Poco M3 Pro 5G phone now in India

The Poco M3 Pro, besides making us future-ready with dual 5G, provides us with features that are trending right now. To start with, it comes with a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with support for a 90Hz refresh rate. The screen also comes with a DynamicSwitch feature that switches between the refresh rate (from 30Hz to 90Hz) depending upon what's being displayed.

The phone is powered by a 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 700 chip. It comes provides people with two RAM/Storage options: 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. Both variants support expandable storage (up to 1TB).



The phone being a Poco M3 successor comes with a funky design, which is known as the SwitchBlade design. There is a vertical strip in the top left corner that houses the camera hump and the company's branding. This is a change from the big camera setup on the M3. But, what remains the same is the attractive colour options that include the Poco-proprietary yellow colour. Other colours are Cool Blue and Power Black.

On the camera front, there are three rear snappers: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The phone gets an 8-megapixel front camera. This is similar to the Poco M3.

The smartphone also comes with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. This is a step down from the 6,000mAh battery seen on the Poco M3. But, don't be disappointed as the company claims it will last you for up to two days. It runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11.
