POCO Global, last month, introduced its most affordable smartphone – POCO M3. Within a week after the global launch, the POCO M3 Indian variant made an appearance on Google Play supported devices list. Though the Indian variant has also received TUV certification, POCO has been completely silent regarding the POCO M3 India launch. A recent post on POCO Community suggested that the POCO M3 India debut might happen on 13th January. Now, POCO India Country Director, Anuj Sharma has said that the information isn’t accurate, and the POCO M3 India launch date isn’t yet finalized/public.

To those unaware, POCO M3 shares a lot in common with the Redmi 9 Power which was recently launched in the country. Let us have a detailed look at POCO M3 India price (expected), features, and specifications.
