Like a bolt from the blue, a few days ago the official announcement for November 24 appeared, about the global launch of the new smartphone POCO M3, of which many have speculated to be a rebrand of the new Redmi Note 9 5G / Redmi Note 10 also expected to arrive at the end of November. Apparently something slightly different awaits us, at least judging the design that the colleagues of 91Mobiles through a render they proposed to the internet, even if the source is not specified.
The image in terms of quality seems to be quite well done and therefore it could also be an official render, but at the moment there are neither denials nor confirmations. In any case, as happened with the recent POCO X3 NFC, also in this case on the rear we have a rather curious photographic module, which incorporates 3 cameras in a rectangle that extends over the entire upper width of the smartphone until it fades with the logo of the brand.
LITTLE M3: a leaked render that reveals the very special design ...
So a first difference compared to the model that Redmi will launch on the market and therefore probably only for the Chinese market, on POCO M3 we have one less photo sensor while the main one will have 48 MP resolution. From the rendering we can also see how the new device will come in 3 different colors, such as black, blue and a beautiful yellow, meaning that the terminal will appeal to a young audience and that therefore the price will also be rather low.
The display will have Full HD + resolution with a 6,53-inch diagonal and a drop notch. Certainly not a panache of innovation, but there are those who hypothesize a refresh rate at 90 Hz, such as to hold onto the recent OnePlus N100.
There will be good performance, certainly not a top of the range but an excellent mid-range, as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor will be equipped as well as a 6000 mAh battery, designed to guarantee an autonomy worthy of the most geek. We just have to wait for next November 24th, 13pm for Italy, when we will know all the secrets of this new POCO M3. For the rest of what has been leaked so far, the (hypothetical) technical data sheet of POCO M3 should be composed as follows:
- 6,53 ″ Full HD + LTPS LCD perforated display (2340 x 1080 pixels) - LIKELY REFRESH RATE AT 90HZ;
