After the launch of the very successful POCO X3, the brand is back for a new smartphone launch. POCO Global previously teased the arrival of a new smartphone by the end of 2020. Now, the brand officially confirmed the arrival of the POCO M3 on November 24.
POCO has been known for its recent rebranding strategy. So far, the X3 is the only original device released by the company. Apparently, the Xiaomi POCO M3 will also be a rebranded version of the yet-to-go official Redmi Note 10 4G.
According to previous reports, the smartphone uses a 6.53-inch 2340*1080P LCD screen with a body thickness of 9.6 mm. The weight is 198g.
In terms of performance, it adopts the Snapdragon 662 processor based on a 11-nanometer process technology, and 4*Cortex A73 2.0GHz+4*Cortex A53 1.8GHz octa-core architecture. This chipset isn’t what we want to see at the end of 2020. Perhaps, the device will come with an aggressive price tag to justify the choice for a chipset that has less horsepower than the Snapdragon 665 which is present on the Redmi Note 8 from last year. Apart from the SoC, the listing also revealed 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the front, the phone sports a 6.53-inch FHD IPS LCD panel with a waterdrop notch serving as a house for an 8MP selfie camera. It also features a rear 48MP triple camera module.
The biggest highlight of the Xiaomi POCO M3 is that it is equipped with a large battery of up to 6000mAh, and supports 22.5W fast charging. Long battery life, to meet users who are inconvenient to charge when traveling.
Due to processor limitations, the machine will not support 5G networks. And we expect the price to not exceed 1,000 yuan ($140), focusing on the low-end market.
