POCO Brand Independence

With this launch, POCO Global is ushering into a new era as an independent brand. This significant milestone was enabled by the overwhelming support of its global fan base, which helped the brand accomplish several notable achievements since its first POCO F1 device debuted in 2018.


The POCO M3 sports a 6.53” FHD+ Dot Drop display with 2340×1080 high resolution, along with an impressive 1,500:1 contrast ratio and 19.5:9 aspect ratio for a edge-to-edge viewing experience.

Its Corning Gorilla Glass 3 front screen offers ample protection against drops and scratches, while its anti-fingerprint textured back cover provides a secure grip and superior light-weight feel.

POCO M3 is equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor that enables a minimalistic front screen design. The POCO M3 is also easy on the eyes as it’s TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified, meaning users can watch hours of content with minimal eye strain.

Boasting a dual speaker system with dust blaster, POCO M3 provides superior sound with powerful bass for an immersive indoor entertainment experience.

Battery life

Equipped with the largest battery capacity in its class, POCO M3 guarantees even the most avid gamers will be fully powered to browse, connect, and stream throughout the day with its mighty 6,000mAh high charge cycle battery.

The phone is expected to last over 5 days under light usage, and slightly below 3 days under moderate usage. It takes roughly 1.5 days for the battery to be fully drained under heavy usage. Meanwhile, POCO M3 packs a punch with its specially-designed battery, built to withstand high temperatures and nearly 2.5 years of usage without notable degradation, ensuring a long-lasting experience. 

In addition to its durability, POCO M3 provides a faster and more consistent charging speed for users on the go with its MIUI ultra battery saving mode and 18W fast charge. The device comes with a 22.5W in-box charger and supports reverse wired charging, offering enhanced convenience.

POCO M3 flaunts an attractively priced  48MP triple camera, supported by a 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor. Meanwhile, your selfie game is sure to stay strong thanks to the device’s 8MP selfie camera.
