What’s Good in the Poco M3 Pro 5G?
What comes to mind when you hear the name Poco? I think of affordability and stylish designs. Poco has been one of the best value for money smartphone makers in many markets with its budget, mid-range and even flagship smartphones.
However, in India, the company has focused mostly on the budget and mid-range devices with its C, M and X series smartphones. Now, the brand has unveiled its first 5G phone in the mid-range segment with the introduction of the Poco M3 Pro 5G.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G is also the first phone from Poco to feature a MediaTek Dimensity chipset. The device also features a high refresh rate display and fast storage. While the device is not the top of the line gaming phone, the Poco M3 Pro 5G will try and beat the competition in the budget segment in India. The Poco M3 Pro will be an improved version of the Poco M3.
If there is one area that I expect the Poco M3 to stand out from the rest of the crowd, that’d be the design. The Poco M3 came in a stunning new design and some eye-popping colour options. With Poco M3 Pro 5G, the company has taken it to a whole new level. The design is also one of the potential selling points of this phone as its two-tone design might appeal to some.
The Poco M3 Pro 5G is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity chipset, making it the brand’s first 5G phone with a Dimensity chipset. The MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset powers the device. It is an octa-core processor built on top of a 7nm process with two Cortex-A76 CPU cores clocked at 2.2Ghz and six efficient Cortex-A55 cores running at 2GHz.
Another feature that stood out to me was the battery life. It is packed with a big 5,000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging via Type-C. Overall, this seems like a decent phone to me which will surely be very popular this year.
