The POCO M3 was recently announced in India. It has been selling like hotcakes since it went on sale and as of yesterday, over 250,000 units have been sold in the country in just under 10 days. Now, the phone has made its way to Nigeria and it remains to be seen if it can replicate its success here.
POCO doesn’t have an official presence in Nigeria, so just like Redmi, its phones will be sold under its parent company, Xiaomi. There wasn’t a proper launch for the POCO M3 but interested buyers can purchase the phone right now on Xiaomi’s official store on Jumia Nigeria.
The POCO M3 is available in two configurations – 4GB RAM + 64GB and 4GB RAM + 128GB for ₦ 64,999 and ₦ 69,999 respectively. Unfortunately, the popular POCO Yellow colorway isn’t available so you can only pick it up in Power Black and Cool Blue.
