A new member has been added to Poco’s M-series lineup, it’s the Poco M3 which brings a large rectangular camera isle at the back with some impressive hardware and an impressive price to back it up.
Poco brings an audacious design with a prominent rectangular camera isle at the rear. The back also has an anti-fingerprint finish as well and some cool color options: Cool Blue, Power Black, and the POCO Yellow.
Put all that aside and you have a battery champ here as the Poco M3’s main highlight is its 6,000mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging as well as reverse fast charging at the same speed. Poco left no stones unturned in this regard as it claims up to 5 days of light use, 3 days of moderate use, and a day and half of heavy use. The company even went on to say that the phone’s battery will last at least 2 and a half years of use without any major degradation.
Taking a look at the back, the large rectangular camera placement consists of three cameras — one is a 48MP main sensor with 0.8μm pixels with f/1.79 aperture. The remaining two are 2MP f/2.4 macro and 2MP f/2.4 depth shooters, both there just for numbers.
The front of the phone is pretty spotless as it gets minimal bezels and a large 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a 60Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. There’s a waterdrop notch at the top holding an 8MP selfie camera.
Powering the Poco M3 is the Snapdragon 662 chipset built atop 11nm fabrication, 4GB of RAM, and either 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage.
The rest of the features include stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner at the side, and an IR blaster which is always a welcome addition.
The Poco M3 sales kick off on November 27, right on Black Friday. There’s a discounted price as well — $129 for the 4GB/64GB variant and $149 for the 4GB/128GB. After the promotion, you can buy it for $149 (~NPR 17,699) and $169 (~NPR 20,000) respectively.
There’s no word on the availability of the phone in Nepal but we expect it to hit within a month or two.
