Just in time for the Christmas business, Xiaomi is preparing to launch a new entry-level smartphone. It comes from the Poco family, which also includes the popular Poco F2 Pro and the recently launched Poco X3 NFC. The Poco M3, which was newly presented on Tuesday, clearly focuses on an affordable price, but is stingy in some areas in terms of equipment. In return, it scores with an energy storage device that has almost a unique selling point. The basic approach is: offer entry-level hardware at a fair price.
Entry-level smartphone in three colors
Perhaps the most important message: the display of the 198 gram mobile phone is large. The diagonal dimension is 6.53 inches and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels. The aspect ratio is 19.5: 9. The fingerprint sensor is not to be found behind the display or on the back, but is integrated in the frame on the side. The back is available in black, blue or yellow and should be less prone to fingerprints with a structured surface.
Also to be found at the back: a very simple triple camera. The main tasks are done by a 48 megapixel sensor together with a lens with an f / 1.8 aperture and autofocus. The main camera is equipped with a night mode, among other things, and allows slow-motion videos at 120 fps. In addition, two 2-megapixel cameras are installed. In addition to a macro camera, there is also a depth of field module – each with an f / 2.4 aperture. A telecamera is missing, as is a wide-angle lens. The selfie camera on the front has a resolution of up to 8 megapixels.
Xiaomi relies on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 for the processor. It is supported by 4 GB of RAM. More RAM is rarely common in the entry-level class. On the software side, Android 10 is preinstalled with an adapted user interface (MIUI 12). Additional features include two speakers, a 3.5-millimeter jack for headphones, two SIM card slots (dual SIM) and dual WLAN (2.4 & 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5.0 and an FM radio. However, you have to do without an NFC interface. This means that mobile payment with the Poco M3 is unfortunately not possible either.
But there is a really large battery with a capacity of an impressive 6,000 mAh. Poco itself speaks of the largest battery in the segment in which the Poco M3 is fighting for market share. A look at the Samsung Galaxy M21, for example, shows that the transitions are pretty fluid. It also has a 6,000 mAh battery and is currently available from just under 190 euros.
What does the Xiaomi Poco M3 cost?
The Xiaomi Poco M3 will be available in two memory versions from November 27th. Initially exclusively via the in-house online shop and on Amazon. With 64 GB of storage space, the smartphone costs just 129 euros for four days. If you want 128 GB of storage space, you have to pay 149 euros. After that, the cell phone costs 149 and 169 euros in the two variants mentioned.
The bottom line is that the Xiaomi Poco M3 is a smartphone that wants to swim with the broad mass of smartphones under 200 euros. And want to score with a rock solid equipment with a huge battery as a highlight. But the competition is great. Even in-house. For example, you can currently secure the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (128 GB memory / 6 GB RAM). Cost: around 170 euros. The Honor 9X Pro, which is currently available from Amazon for just under 170 euros, even offers access to 256 GB of storage space.
In this respect, the following applies: The approach of bringing a smartphone onto the market at a price point of around 150 euros can certainly be worthwhile for Xiaomi. But if you are smart, you don’t pick up the first offer, but find out beforehand whether there might even be better equipped smartphones. Our leaderboards offer you good assistance in this regard.
