Poco M3 Pro 5G has finally gone official after being part of so many frequent leaks. It will be available tomorrow at Poco's official website or through Amazon, AliExpress. Poco is offering early bird offers, which make the price down to below 200 euros. Poco has announced that so many other partner outlets will also sell the new M3 Pro 5G device.
The device features a cool new design if you look at its back panel. Poco has managed to make a big room for three rear sensors before giving them a separate rectangular module. From the look of the official renders, the module looks flushed inside the rear panel, which is a good thing, unlike many other phones that have a protruding camera setup these days. The front look of the Poco M3 Pro 5G, however, looks similar to many affordable phones out there. It gets a teardrop-style notch to hold an 8MP selfie camera for you.
Under the hood, the new Poco M3 Pro gets MediaTek’s Dimensity 700, the SoC that got launched back in November. It is built upon a 7nm process, so you can expect some better performance compared to the Snapdragon 662 SoC (fabricated using 11nm) used in the vanilla Poco M3 phone. The RAM options available are 4GB or 6GB with storage options either 64GB or 128GB.
The Pro model gets the 90Hz display that makes UI smoother. It runs Android 11 out of the box with MIUI 12 on the top.
