The phone also comes with a large 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W wired charging, Bluetooth 5.1 support, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, FM radio, and an IR blaster. On the software side of things, the POCO M3 Pro 5G runs MIUI 12 based on Android 11.
POCO has priced the M3 Pro 5G at ₹13,999 ($192) for the 4GB/64GB version and ₹15,999 ($220) for the 6GB/128GB version. It will be available to purchase in India from June 14 via Flipkart.
