Without a doubt, the latest smartphone released by POCO will set like hotcakes this holiday season! POCO M3 enters the highly competitive entry-level smartphone category, which is now getting surprisingly interesting with the arrival of high-performance and feature-packed devices.
POCO M3 comes with the most impressive features for its class. The device is also important as it comes as POCO Global becomes an independent brand. “The POCO philosophy embodies an attitude we all strive for—to be different and confident,” said POCO Global Head Kevin Qiu.
Here are six of the best features that make POCO M3 not just different but confident but a really superior device in the entry-level smartphone category.
1. Impressive battery performance
POCO M3 is equipped with a battery that has the largest capacity in all entry-level smartphones in the market. Thus, the device can guarantee full power most of the time for browsing, connecting, and streaming throughout the day. With its mighty 6,000mAh high-charge cycle battery, the smartphone can function for more than 5 days under light usage and about 3 days under moderate usage. It would take about 1.5 days before its battery is fully drained under heavy usage.
POCO M3 also charges faster and more consistently—perfect for users who are always on the go. It is also equipped with MIUI ultra battery saving mode and 18W fast charge. The unit has 22.5W in-box charger, supporting reverse wired charging, offering enhanced convenience at the same time.
“We’re flipping the device category on its head with POCO M3, providing more than you expect at every level,” said POCO Global Head of Product Marketing Angus Ng. The specially-designed battery pack can withstand high temperatures and last about 2.5 years of usage without significant degradation for longer-lasting battery life.
2. Stunning display for entertainment use
As an entertainment beast, POCO M3 stuns with its 6.53” FHD+ Dot Drop display with 2340 X 1080 high resolution, along with an impressive 1,500:1 contrast ratio and 19.5:9 aspect ratio—facilitating an edge-to-edge viewing experience. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 front screen gives ample protection against scratches and drops, while the anti-fingerprint textured back cover provides a secure grip and superior light-weight feel. There is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for a minimalistic front screen design that does not compromise user accessibility.
Moreover, POCO M3 is TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified—its users can watch hours of content with minimal eye strain. That is paired with a dual speaker system with a dust blaster for a superior sound with powerful bass for an immersive indoor entertainment experience.
3. A 48MP triple camera setup with excellent photography features
What other phones in its class can beat the 48MP triple camera that only POCO M3 can boast about? That is backed by a 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor. Those are even topped by the 8MP selfie camera on the front side. Truly, you can elevate your photography skills to the next level.
The powerful camera system is complemented by new creative software. First, the movie frame gives pictures a more cinematic flavor. Time-lapse uses various speed vales to capture various scenes. Night Mode helps make sure photos are still beautiful even if captured in dark environments. This feature boosts the color contrast, while Color focus makes tomes pop so subjects can stand out. Capturing killer moments and upping your social media game has never been this interesting.
4. Brilliant mobile performance
Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor delivers a brilliant experience that may not be possible in other smartphones in POCO M3’s category. Qualcomm Adreno 610 GPU facilitates a smoother and gaming video experience—and the opportunity to store high-quality photos at half the size. Its 11nm processor delivers higher performance, produces less heat, and consumes less power. The UFS storage promises higher performance, speed, and multitasking when opening and using apps and games, which should be quicker.
The MIUI Game Booster tracks CPU and GPU usage in real-time, while the voice changer brings a little space to users’ gaming experience. You can even cast your screen onto an external monitor. Thus, effortless entertainment can be at the palm of your hand!
5. Stylishly unique design
The stylish design of POCO M3 won’t weigh you down. The smartphone is available in Cool Blue, POCO Yellow, and Power Black. The device, which weighs less than 200 grams, is made of a material that won’t lose anyone’s grip. It has a redesigned side-mounted fingerprint scanner that easily allows unlocking the smartphone in a jiffy. It includes a smaller groove and rounded corners to minimize sharp edges.
6. Amazing price tag
With all its impressive features, POCO M3 is surprisingly priced at P6,990 for the 4GB+64GB variant, while the 4GB+128GB variant costs P7,990. Both variants are exclusively available online at the Xiaomi Official Store Global on Lazada.
