POCO currently has three big lineups of phones in its product catalog. The F-series for flagships, the X-series for the mid-rangers, and the M-series for budget phones. The latest entry in the M-line, the POCO M3, is soon getting a ‘Pro’ companion. This POCO M3 Pro has already secured several certifications.

First things first, the Xiaomi POCO M3 Pro isn’t a new product but a rebrand of the still-recent Redmi Note 10 5G. The model has been certified by China’s TENNA, the American FCC, and the Indian BIS authorities. You can find the documents under the model number “M2013K19PG”, which closely corresponds to the Redmi Note 10 5G.

Redmi Note 10 5G was announced last month, so we already know what to expect from the POCO M3 Pro. At its heart, the device has the 7nm Dimensity 700 chipset, the most entry-level 5G platform from MediaTek. It works with the Android11-based MIUI 12, 4GB/6GB of memory, and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. 

The build of the new Xiaomi mobile features a side-facing thumbprint reader. You'll also find NFC support, an IR Blaster, and a slot for storage expansion. It all runs on a 5000 mAh battery that can fast-charge over 18W. The POCO M3 Pro would feature a 48MP primary lens, a 2MP macro sensor, a 2MP portrait camera, and an 8MP selfie shooter.

We find a 6.5” IPS LCD with a hole punch out on the front. It delivers a full HD resolution, a smooth 90Hz refresh rate, and 400 nits of peak brightness, all toughened with Gorilla Glass 3. POCO M3 Pro could start from 170 EUR (~ Rs. 31,000.)
