The newly independent Xiaomi spin-off Poco has announced its latest smartphone, which further broadens the brand beyond Poco F1’s initial pitch with high specifications for low prices. Like the X2, the M2 Pro is more of a mid-range business: it’s basically a fine-tuned version of Xiaomi’s global Redmi Note 9 Pro that caters to the Indian market.
No one will mistake M2 Pro’s flagship specification sheet, but it can be a compelling option for customers who prioritize battery life. There is a 5,000 mAh battery with a 33W quick charger included in the box. Poco says it should give a 50 percent fee in 30 minutes. In combination with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, I expect this phone to last quite a while.
The M2 Pro features a 6.67-inch 1080p LCD with a 16-megapixel hole punch Selfie camera. There is a fingerprint sensor integrated in the switch. The camera setting contains four sensors: 48-megapixel primary, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel depth.
The phone comes in green, black and blue color options, and there are models available with 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage. There is also a microSD slot.
Poco M2 Pro will cost Rs. 13,999 (~ $ 185) for a model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Rs. 14,999 ($ 200) for 6 GB / 64 GB and Rs. 16,999 ($ 225) for 6 GB / 128 GB. It will be available in India exclusively on Flipkart on July 14.
