Looks like Poco has something new coming our way soon. The Poco M3 Pro is on its way to complement the vanilla M3 in Poco’s ever-expanding roster. It’s a similar move to what Poco recently pulled with the X3 and X3 Pro.
Unlike that pair, however, it looks like the M3 Pro won’t look identical to the M3, opting to forgo that model’s standout design for a different type of standout design. We’re saying this based on the leaked renders you can see below.
Compared to the M3, the M3 Pro will have a MediaTek Dimensity chipset at the helm, according to Kevin Xiaobo Qiu, the head of Poco Global, and Angus Ng, Poco’s global head of product marketing. The exact SoC isn’t named, but it will perform better than the Snapdragon 662 in the non-Pro phone. The company’s internal testing had that one score 301,635 in AnTuTu, while the upcoming M3 Pro scores 329,072.
Because it’s a Dimensity, it will have 5G connectivity. Additionaly, the Poco M3 Pro will sport a high refresh rate screen, which is another improvement compared to the M3. As you can see, it will be available in three colors, including Poco yellow.
Interestingly, as the Poco M3 Pro launches, the Poco X3 will be retired. The M3 Pro will be priced around the same as that model, and for those who want even better performance there’s the Poco X3 Pro.
