Is it possible to hope that the fresh device from the brand that gained its independence from Shiomi will cost only NIS 600 when it is launched in Israel?
We knew it was coming, we wished for a price that would surprise for good - and now we can announce that the official presentation of the Poco M3 model manages to live up to expectations in an impressive way.
This new competitive smartphone, from the brand, which was created two and a half years ago under Xiaomi and has already had the option of independent and separate operation from the parent company, includes a 6.53-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1,080 × 2,340 pixels, a standard refresh rate of 60 Hz and a protective coating. Gorilla Glass 3, chip Qualcomm's octagonal Snapdragon 662, system Android 10 with MIUI 12 interface above it featuring specific adjustments for Poco devices, 4GB dynamic LPDDR4X memory, fast 2.1GB or 2.2GB UFS 64 storage respectively with the added support of expandable microSD cards of up to 128GB - and a large 512mAh battery with 6,000 charging support Watts and reverse charging of other devices, just like battery Portable, at the same maximum power of up to 18 watts.
The Poco M3 weighs 198 grams, with a shell made of 9.6 millimeter thick plastic that will be sold in a black, blue or bright yellow shade that gets the name that requires something Poco Yellow - and includes a basic triangular rear photo array with a 48-megapixel main sensor and a pair of 2-megapixel sensors Secondary pixel for depth whispering and macro photography, basic 8-megapixel selfie camera, built-in infrared transmitter, speakers Dual, slot for headphones, connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11ac Dual Channel, Connectivity Bluetooth 5.0, FM radio receiver and fingerprint scanner built into a side button.
The specs for the Poco M3 are far from the most impressive we have encountered, with the simple use of a 60 Hz screen, the lack of dedicated sensors for wide-angle photography and telephoto photography and the disappearance of chip The NFC compared to previous Poco models are quite significant weaknesses - but here comes the official price tag and helps to make order. The new model will be officially launched in several European countries in three days, on November 27, with a sale flash At exciting prices of 130 euros (including local tax) for a version with 64GB of internal volume and of 150 euros for a version with a volume of 128GB - that is 520 shekels and 600 shekels in direct conversion respectively.
Once the initial stock at the launch sale is completed the prices will grow slightly though, to a threshold of 150 euros as a basis for the model with 64GB of storage And 170 EUR to model with 128GB of storage - But these are still price tags lower than 700 shekels that should be close to the recommended prices here in Israel, considering that the tax in European countries is similar and even slightly higher than the Israeli VAT value. After the launch of the Poco X3 NFC in the local market with the sale flash At great prices, we have good reason to believe and hope that the Poco M3 will also come here, and will be marketed with real bargain prices for the most agile.
