POCO M3 Pro 5G: Expected Specifications
As per rumours, the device is expected to be the company’s first budget 5G offering. Its specifications will be similar to the Redmi Note 10 5G variant.
Some of the key specs include:
The phone will come with a 6.5-inch full-HD+ LCD panel. With a peak brightness of 1100 nits, it will be a 90Hz refresh rate display. The display will also have a centrally-aligned punch-hole for the selfie camera.
As revealed by the company, it will support adaptive refresh rate technology, which will help in conserving some battery life.
Further, the display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
It will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G processor. Coupled with the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, it will handle everyday tasks in a breeze and also provide improved gaming performance. The Dimensity 700 is a 5G processor which supports 5G connectivity and dual-5G support.
Based on the 7nm fabrication process, it is small yet powerful and also battery efficient.
It is a processor which will deliver great and sustained performance as and when needed.
Ram & Storage
Further, supporting LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage interface, lags are a thing of the past.
The device will be paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage as standard. Storage can be further expanded via the dedicated MicroSD card slot support.
The phone will run on Android 11 out-of-the-box with MIUI 12. The phone may have some custom skin with special features and additions to differentiate it from MIUI.
The camera performance will be a fairly decent one. At the back will be a triple-camera setup with a primary 48MP sensor, a 2MP+2MP camera for depth sensing and macro capabilities, respectively. The primary camera will have an f/1.8 aperture. High Dynamic Range (HDR) will also be supported.
The device will have an 8MP front shooter for selfies, which will give you good selfies and better video quality video chats.
The POCO M3 Pro 5G will be backed by a massive 5,000 mAh battery pack and an 18W fast charging support.
This high-capacity battery will ensure your all-day performance, and the coupled 18W fast charger will further help you recharge the phone quickly.
The main highlight would be the dual 5G support, including dual-band 4G and dual-band Wi-Fi. The phone will also have Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and a USB Type-C port for fast charging and speedy data transfers.
For security, the phone will support Facial Unlock and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Also, the device will have Hi-Res audio support and an IR-Blaster.

POCO M3 Pro 5G: India Launch
The POCO M3 Pro will be the successor of the POCO M3. Being a budget-range 5G phone, it is expected to come in India under the 15k price bracket. If this happens, the POCO M3 Pro will be a direct rival to the Realme 8 5G.
We may get to see the device launch in India after the situation gets under control.
Also, in a recent interview with Android Central, the company executives confirmed that the device would have a new design. Many renders are seen floating on the internet, which shows that POCO is trying to design something different.
But moreover, from creating their designs, they should also work on designing new mobile devices indigenously. I think the re-branding should stop as it probably affects a brands image and dignity.

Rumours have also confirmed that POCO is also working on a gaming device, allegedly the POCO F3 GT, which will also be a re-brand of the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition.
It will be a delight to see what changes POCO brings to this device.
We can expect this device to launch in one or two months.
