Following the release of the Poco M2 Reloaded recently, the company has yet again launched another model–the Poco M3 Pro 5G. The new release of Xiaomi is identical to the new Redmi Note 10 5G by Xiaomi. The specs of the two phones are similar with the only difference being the appearance: both are made of plastic but the Poco has a glossy finish with a black accent running on the rear from the camera setup to almost the middle, housing the Poco branding.
