Poco has made its latest move for the Indian smartphone market with the announcement of an all-new budget segment device, the Poco M2 Pro. It is the company's most affordable smartphone to date, but still, one that does not disappoint when it comes to the spec sheet.
While a unique offering in many ways, the phone does bear a strong resemblance to the Redmi Note 9 Pro, as it comes with not only similar specs but also design. Here's all you need to know about the Poco M2 Pro.
Poco M2 Pro: Specifications
Display: It brings a 6.67-inch 20:9 FHD+ punch-hole display that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Chipset: The Poco M2 Pro gets a Snapdragon 720G Octa-core processor
Ram: Either 4GB or 6GB of RAM
Storage: Depending on the variant of choice, either 64GB or 128GB of ROM
Rear cameras: 48-megapixel lens which is paired to an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor, 5-megapixel macro sensor, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Front cameras: A 16-megapixel sensor for clicking selfies and video calling
Battery: 5,000mAh battery pack, which can be topped up real fast using the phone's 33W fast charger that ships within the box.
Poco M2 Pro: Features
The Poco M2 Pro is one of those phones that banks heavily on the spec sheet to overcome the existing competition in the market. At the core of the phone's attempts at establishing its supremacy is the powerful mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 720G SoC. This paired with up to 6GB of RAM should prove to be good enough for more than casual gaming, and mostly flaw-less performance.
Poco is also talking up the camera of the phone, which sees it house a quad-camera set-up similar to what we've previously seen on the Redmi Note 9 Pro. The phone also brings with itself a big battery that promises at least a day's worth of use on a single charge. However, what the company hopes will truly do the trick is the battery's support for 33W fast charging -- equipment for which is being shipped in the box with the device.
Poco M2 Pro: Price and availability
Poco has announced that this new device, the Poco M2 Pro will be available in three RAM and storage variants. The company has said that the Poco M2 Pro will start retail at Rs 13,999 for the 4GB/64GB variant. The 6GB/64GB one will retail for Rs 14,999 while the top-of-the-line 6GB/128GB variant will be sold for Rs 16,999.
All three variants have been announced to be made available in three different colours -- Two Shades of Black, Out of the Blue and Green and Greener. The phone has been announced as a Flipkart exclusive and will be available via the platform during its first sale on July 14 at 12 pm.
