Poco M3 Pro 5G could cost under Rs. 18,000, as per a recent leak. The phone is scheduled to launch in India on June 8, following its debut in the European market last month. It is a rebranded Redmi Note 10 5G and speculations suggest there will be a 6GB + 128GB storage variant along with a 4GB + 64GB storage model. The leaked pricing is expected to be for the 6GB + 128GB variant which means that the base variant could be even cheaper. Poco M3 Pro 5G was launched in three colour options and that could be the case with the Indian variant as well.
Poco M3 Pro 5G is tipped to cost Rs. 17,999 for the 6GB + 128GB storage variant, as tweeted by The Leaks Guy (@theleaksguy) on Twitter. It states that this is the box price which could mean the phone could be even cheaper upon purchase. Additionally, there could be a 4GB + 64GB storage variant as well that will also be cheaper than Rs. 17,999.
The phone was launched in Europe for EUR 159 (roughly Rs. 14,100) for the base 4GB + 64GB storage option. The 6GB + 128GB storage option is priced at EUR 179 (roughly Rs. 15,900). It comes in three colour options — Cool Blue, Power Black, and Poco Yellow.
