Latest POCO M3 GOES OFFICIAL WITH New SNAPDRAGON 662, 6000MAH BATTERY, 48MP CAMERA AND $129 PRICE

POCO has pretty much revolutionized the smartphone world in 2018 with the release of the Pocophone F1 with a Snapdragon 845 SoC and other compelling specifications. In 2019, Xiaomi put the brand to rest and only revived it this year.

So far, the company already released a multitude of smartphones but lost some of its appeals due to an unexpected rebranding strategy. In September, however, POCO surprised us again with the POCO X3 NFC, one of the best value for money smartphones released in 2020.

The POCO M3 packs a 6.53-inch LCD with FHD+ resolution (2,400 x 1080) and a 19:5:9 aspect ratio thanks to the waterdrop notch that serves as a house for the selfie snapper.

Unfortunately, the display only has a 60Hz refresh rate, but this still is a standard for budget smartphones. The display is covered with Gorilla Glass 3.

Under the hood, the POCO M3 carries the Snapdragon 662 SoC. According to the brand, the 11nm chipset was the perfect choice for the budget device since it is cheaper and even outperforms the Snapdragon 665 which is available in other devices like last year’s Redmi Note 8.

The Octa-Core chipset brings the Adreno 610 GPU that can run modest games and heavy ones at average settings. In case you’re wondering this is an LTE only smartphone, but it brings the usual Dua-SIM support.

The chipset is paired with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM which boosts the phone’s multitasking capabilities. There are two distinct variants, one has 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage and the other has 128GB of UFS 2.2 Storage.

The POCO M3 comes with a Triple-Camera array led by a 48MP main camera. The camera housing is black and reaches the edges of the smartphone resulting in a design that quite resembles the first Pixel smartphone.

The main sensor has a 1/2″ size, f/1.79 aperture, 6P lens, Auto-Focus, 0.8um pixel size, 1.6um 4-in-1 Super Pixel. The secondary shooter is a 2MP Macro Camera with a 1.75um pixel size, f/2.4 aperture. The third and final sensor is a 2MP Depth module with 1.75um pixel size and f/2.4 aperture.

The POCO M3 has a matte finish and three distinct colorways – Power Black, Cool Blue, and POCO Yellow. During today’s keynote, the brand stated that the latter color is what better represents POCO as a brand.

This color is what makes the device stand with its original design among the myriad of other smartphones in the segment. He says the users will love to see it in the real life.

The phone has a USB-C port that supports up to 22.5W fast-charging. If you’re curious about the battery size, yes, the POCO M3 comes with a massive 6,000mAh battery.
