The chipset is further accompanied by 4GB RAM and two storage options – 64GB/128GB, both of which can be expanded further using a microSD card.
One of the main highlights of the Poco M3 is its gigantic battery capacity that is a 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. The phone also supports reverse wired charging in case you want to charge any other phone with it.
It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and has an IR blaster too. It features dual speakers and has a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. You also get a USB Type-C, USB 2.0. Poco M3 runs Android 10 with MIUI 12.
