POCO presents M3 smartphone revelation flagship, one that comes to make " a lot of noise": Poco, the sub-brand of Xiaomi, has presented this Tuesday worldwide its new phone, the POCO M3, under the slogan "more than you imagine".
The company was born in 2018 From The Hand of Xiaomi with the aim of capturing the segment of public "technology enthusiast" who is looking for concrete specifications but who does not care about a premium design.
The first mobile of the Multinational, the Pocophone F1, was a bestseller in all international markets, reaching 2,300,000 shipments of units worldwide.
In addition, their Poco F2 Pro and Poco X3 NFC models also had quite good reception, in the case of the last reached the million shipments in the first two months. Now, the M3 comes to reaffirm the motto of the company that aims to "make a lot of noise".
The new device can only be purchased online, so little bets on a market that has grown exponentially during the pandemic. In particular, online sales have gone from being a percentage of 18% to 26% during the health crisis.
This terminal represents the premiere of the M series of Poco Global, in the words of the company, "the brand's foray into a completely new category" focused on a new group of "technology lovers".
The M3 "comes to meet the demand of users looking for an entry terminal with competent features". Thus, it stands out for incorporating an admirable autonomy, as well as a more than decent camera. All for less than 150 euros.

The POCO M3 is made of polycarbonate (plastic) and simulates the appearance of the skin, which prevents imprinted traces from remaining on the back of the smartphone, something that occurs in many current devices, as well as favoring the secure grip.
Likewise, the terminal has dimensions of 162.3 mm x 77.3 mm x 9.6 mm and weighs 198 grams. It will be available in blue, yellow and black.
The screen has a dimension of 6.53 inches with FullHD + resolution (2.340x1.080 pixels), a good choice for those who like to enjoy series or videos on their mobile phone.
POCO M3 is also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified, which, according to the company, reduces visual fatigue.
The terminal incorporates Qualcomm Adreno 610 GPU, which guarantees "a fluid audiovisual and gaming experience", as well as the opportunity to store high-quality photos at half the size.
In addition, the terminal processor offers higher performance, less heat generation and lower power consumption.
The company has advanced that, with its UFS storage, it promises greater performance, speed and multitasking, which will "outperform the competition when it comes to opening apps and games."
It carries a 6,000 mAh battery and a 22.5 W USB-C charger in the box, although the company has specified that it only supports 18W fast charging.
POCO claims that the battery will last more than 5 days with light use, almost 3 days with moderate and a day and a half with intensive.
Regarding the photographic section, the M3 incorporates three cameras: a 48-megapixel main, a 2-megapixel macro and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, in addition to an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
Among the features included, the company has highlighted the night mode, the option to do time-lapse or slow motion video at 120fps.
In addition, it should be noted that Xiaomi has collected complaints from users regarding the latest smartphones about the size of the rear camera modules that caused the terminals to stagger. In this case, the difference in thickness is minimal which, a priori, will allow to avoid this discomfort.
This smartphone supports bluetooth 5.0, incorporates two speakers, NFC and fingerprint reader on the side, as well as facial recognition for unlocking.
The equipment has a jack of 3.5 mmm, a feature already deprecated but that will delight music lovers.
And in what price segment will this new smartphone be located? Following the line of POCO products that are set at very competitive values, the M3 will officially cost 149 euros for the 64 GB version and 169 euros for the 128 GB version.
The company has wanted to highlight that the terminal incorporates a case, a protector and the charger of 22,5 W, something that "normally takes for granted, but it should not" since many brands like Apple have already removed it from the box of their devices.
The M3 of POCO will be available from today on platforms such as Amazon, PC components, Mediamark and the Xiaomi store— but only in its online version -, since the company continues to bet on marketing these devices exclusively in ecommerce.
As a launch offer, the 4GB + 64GB variant will be available for 129 euros between Friday 27 November and Monday 30, while the 4GB + 128GB model will cost 149 euros during those days.

A group of international scientists has managed to create diamonds at room temperature in a matter of minutes
Science has managed to challenge nature once again by creating diamonds at room temperature in a matter of minutes.
Until now, the manufacture of these precious stones involved a process of billions of years at 150 kilometers of depth and temperatures above 1,000 °C.
However, a team of researchers from different countries led by the Australian National University (ANU) and RMIT University in Melbourne have managed to establish a new procedure much faster and more feasible thanks to a key element: pressure.
Thanks to a pressure equivalent to 640 African elephants applied in the form of twisting or sliding, scientists have created 2 structurally different types of diamonds at room temperature: the one that can be found in jewelry stores and Lonsdaleita.
The latter is much harder than conventional diamonds. It is usually found in places where a meteorite has impacted and is used to cut ultrasolid materials inside mines.
"Creating more lonsdaleita diamond units is the long-term goal of this work," explains xingshuo Huang, an academic on the project. "It was exciting to be able to make 2 types of diamonds at room temperature for the first time in our laboratory."
In addition, to make the project a resounding success, the RMIT team of researchers led by physics professor Dougal McCulloch had to use advanced electron microscopy techniques to take cuts from the experimental samples so that they could better understand how they were formed.
It is important to mention that the creation of synthetic diamonds is not something new, but many scientists have been manufacturing them since the 40s in their laboratories.
Usually laboratory diamonds have been created from the beginning by subjecting carbon to very intense heat with the aim of finding cheaper, ethical and environmentally friendly gemstones.
"Seeing these little normal lonsdaleita and diamond 'rivers' for the first time was just amazing and really helps us understand how they could form," McCulloch adds.
