Xiaomi is introducing the new POCO M3 later today, and the rumor mill has some last-minute leaks for us. The official teasers, featuring the phone and its specs, are already up. What POCO itself hasn’t shared, the new leaks do. Plus, a source also published the alleged prices — leaving little to the imagination at the upcoming event.

POCO M3 another original POCO phone, following and building on the still-recent POCO X3. We’ll get into the design and leaked specs in a few, but here is what the teasers reveal. The POCO M3 adopts a unique but outlandish design.

The phone is expected to live later today in the evening carrying an affordable Xiaomi price tag.

On the back, the camera island stretches and covers the entire width of the device, with POCO’s branding on the left and a triple-camera array on the right. This design reflects the ongoing industry trend of ever-growing camera bumps and takes it to the max. Flip the M3 over to find a 6.53” IPS LCD, with a full HD+ resolution and a notch on top. 

Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 662 processor, which came out earlier this year, powers the device. Although present-gen, the new chipset is a sharp turn from the high-performing POCO X3 and its Snapdragon 732G. But you can expect longer battery life, thanks to the massive 6000 mAh cell that backs up the POCO M3.

Coming back to the reported leaks, MySmartPrice notes that the POCO M3 will ship with a 22.5W fast charger (the M3 only supports up to 18W, however) and 4GB of memory. And come in two storage variants, 64GB and 128GB, and three colors, black, blue, and yellow. Of the three cameras on the back, the primary uses a 48MP sensor, paired with a couple of 2MP macro and ‘depth’ lenses. The selfie camera is 8MP.

Even though some relevant details are still missing from this list, we can already conclude that the Poco M3 will be a device for more casual users who do not want to spend much on their next smartphone. POCO M3 will debut in Europe and start from 149 euros (Rs. 28,000).
