In less than 24 hours Xiaomi will unveil its new POCO M3 . An entry-level terminal of which we not only know its characteristics, but also its price has now been filtered, demonstrating a totally illogical strategy on the part of Xiaomi.
Although, the Redmi Note 9 is officially sold for about 199 euros, the LITTLE M3 seems to arrive ready to compete at home . And it is that, according to reports from 91Mobiles , this new terminal of the Xiaomi subsidiary will have a starting price of 149 to 159 euros.
Specifically, according to this new leak, the POCO M3 with 4 / 64GB of storage will have a price of around 149-159 euros . Instead, its 4 / 128GB variant will amount to 169-179 euros .
POCO M3, between the Redmi Note 9 and Note 9S
As we can see, with characteristics very similar to those of the Redmi Note 9, the new POCO M3 seems to be willing to take all the limelight … perhaps with an inferior processor in performance, but developed by Qualcomm so it will provide greater advantages in the face of be able to install Custom ROMs, better GCam, etc.
Nothing new, we could see this after the launch of the POCO X3 NFC . Rivaling the Redmi Note 9 Pro, the POCO terminal turned out to be more complete and economical than the Redmi smartphone that to date was the best option.
Of course, if we compare it with the Redmi Note 9S that officially sells for 169 euros, its price is perhaps somewhat high. As the only advantage, the POCO M3 would offer NFC , an increasingly demanded feature that we do not find in the Redmi Note 9S.
In short, there is no one who understands Xiaomi's strategy with its sub-brands . Even so, having terminals with such a good quality / price ratio continues to benefit us economically, although not at the level of understanding that each device offers.
