TL;DR
  • The Poco M3 is launching in Europe tomorrow.
  • It’s confirmed to come with the Snapdragon 662 chipset.
  • The device will also house a large 6,000mAh battery.

Poco is all set to announce the M3 in Europe tomorrow. The design of the smartphone leaked last week, showing a device that resembles the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk edition. Now, Poco has gone ahead and confirmed key specs for the phone, including its chipset, battery, and display size.

As rumored before, the Poco M3 will feature the Snapdragon 662 processor. The mid-range octa-core SoC debuted on the Moto G9 earlier this year and has since appeared on the Realme 7i and the Moto G9 Power.

Xiaomi still doesn’t have a Snapdragon 662 phone so it looks like the Poco M3 isn’t a rebranded device after all. That said, it’s worth noting that Xiaomi is also believed to be working on a Redmi phone with the same chipset so the reskinning might work the other way around this time.

Elsewhere, the Poco M3 is confirmed to come with a sizeable 6,000mAh battery and a 6.53-inch display. The official tweet embedded below shows off the phone in its entirety, including its triple-camera array.
