The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi spin-off Poco has launched Poco M3 as a part of its latest offering in the M-Series smartphones. The company introduced Poco M2 in India just a month ago and announced its successor but this time in the global market. As of now, there is no information on Poco M3’s entry in the Indian market. Nevertheless, let’s see what specifications and features the company has given in this newly launched smartphone.

Poco M3 has been launched at a starting price of $149 for the base variant of 4GB+64GB. However, the 4GB+128GB variant will cost you $169 in Europe.

Poco M3: Specifications and Features
Design and Display
Starting with the design, the look seems to be inspired by OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition. There is a large rectangular section on the topside where we get to see the triple rear camera and Poco branding. There is a faux leather anti-fingerprint finish to add more comfortability and grip as the company claims. The Poco M3 features a 6.53-inch FHD+ LCD screen with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 90.34 SBR* and standard 60Hz refresh rate. Besides, we also get Corning Gorilla Glass for protection and a tiny notch on the top which accommodates the 8MP selfie camera.
*SBR- Screen-to-body ratio
There is a triple rear camera setup which includes a 48MP primary camera, 2MP depth sensor and another 2MP macro lens. It is disappointing that the company has skipped the wide-angle lens rather than a macro lens. Moreover, we get features like Portrait, Night Mode, Pro Mode, Sky replacement and more.
The Poco M3 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 chipset along with 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and up to 128GB UFS 2.2 storage. Also, there is a space to expand the phone’s storage using a MicroSD card along with 2 SIMs. The smartphone runs on MIUI 12 for Poco based on Android 11 on the top. We get 6000mAh battery that supports 18W fast-charging technology via USB-C port. Apart from USB-C, for connectivity Poco has offered Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, 4G LTE, GPS/A-GPS and 3.5mm audio jack. Sensors include fingerprint scanner double on the power button and Infrared Blaster.
