The Poco M3.

Poco today announced its first entry-level smartphone, the Poco M3. 

The Poco M3 is the first member of the new M-series product line, which marks the company's foray into the entry-level segment. Despite its positioning, the Poco M3 has an impressive list of specs.

It has the largest battery capacity in its class at 6,000mAh, which is stated to last more than 5 days under light usage, about three days under moderate usage, and an estimated 1.5 days under heavy usage. In addition, the battery can withstand high temperatures and nearly 2.5 years of usage without significant degradation. The 22.5W in-box charger can deliver consistent 18W fast charging for the Poco M3.

The Poco M3 comes with a 6.53-inch FHD+ (2,340 x 1,080 pixels) Dot Drop Display and 19:5:9 aspect ratio for optimal edge-to-edge viewing experience. The display is also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified, which helps to minimise eye strain for consumers as they consume multimedia content on the Poco M3.  The Gorilla Glass 3 helps to protect against drops and scratches while the anti-fingerprint textured back cover offers a more secure grip. 

Other specs include MIUI 12 based on Android 10, Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, 4GB RAM, a rear triple-camera setup (48MP f/1.79 main lens + 2MP f/2.4 macro lens + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor), an 8MP front-facing camera, dual SIM slots + 1 microSD card slot, Bluetooth 5.0, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, AI Face Unlock, dual speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Poco M3 will be available locally in two variants: 4GB + 64GB and 4GB + 128GB. They can be purchased exclusively on Xiaomi Official Store Global on Lazada from 27 November at S$199 and S$219 respectively. The Cool Blue and Power Black models are available at launch, but the Yellow model will be available at a later date.

You can get them at the Xiaomi Official Global Store on Lazada.

Limited-time offers

Poco is offering early bird prices of S$179 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB model, and S$199 for the 4GB + 128GB model. Customers who purchase the Poco M3 on 27 November will also receive the Mi In-Ear Headphones Basic Piston Earphone for free. Both promotions are on a while-stocks-last basis.
