Let’s talk about the POCO M3, which is big on specs but light on the price tag


On Thursday, 10 Dec, POCO Global dropped the brand-new entry-level smartphone, POCO M3, which comes with great specs but more importantly, a reasonable price tag. With its long battery life, FHD+ smartphone display and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 chipset, the POCO M3 is perfect for millennials and Gen Z who don’t want to break the bank for a device that can support their intensive gaming and streaming needs.

POCO M3 marks the debut of POCO Global’s M-series: the brand’s foray into an entirely new category. The new product line builds on POCO Global’s success competing with top-of-the line flagships with its F-series, as well as the impact of its X series in the mid-range category.

Here’s what you need to know about the POCO M3’s specs in a nutshell:

  • 6000 mAh battery
  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 chipset
  • 6.53-inch 1080p LCD screen
  • Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 front screen to keep it protected
  • Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
  • TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified
  • 48MP triple camera setup
  • 8MP selfie camera
  • The smartphone weighs 200g

“POCO M3 brings a truly elevated experience to our users, offering one of the largest batteries in the industry for long-lasting security,”

said Angus Ng, Head of Product Marketing, POCO Global. 
The POCO M3 comes in Cool Blue, POCO Yellow, Power Black. Our pick: the POCO yellow!

The POCO brand has also announced its independence from the  Xiaomi Corporation.

With this latest launch, POCO Global is ushering in a new era as an independent brand. This significant milestone was enabled by the overwhelming support of its global fan base, which helped the brand accomplish several notable achievements since its initial POCO F1 device debuted in 2018:

  • The brand entered more than 35 global markets within three years; 
  • POCO F1  reached over 2.2 million shipments; 
  • Overall, the brand has sold over 6 million* POCO phones globally.

“These tremendous results underscore consumers’ overwhelming endorsement of POCO’s brand philosophy – ‘everything you need, nothing you don’t – and we remain focused on bringing innovative technology to consumers without all the unnecessary frills.”

“The POCO philosophy embodies an attitude we all strive for – to be different and confident. As a newly-established independent brand, we’re looking forward to continuing to deliver technology that matters in an ever-evolving world.”

said Kevin Qiu, Head of POCO Global
