Xiaomi has announced a new Poco smartphone in India and it's their mid-range Poco M2 Pro. In terms of battery, the Poco M2 Pro comes with a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging while the Poco X2 comes with a 4,500mAh battery and support for 27W charging. It is also expected that the Poco M2 Pro will feature a dual-band Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity.
Poco M2 Pro has just been launched in India and comes with impressive specifications.
While there will be three variants available for purchase, the entry-level version comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the mid-level model has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Speaking on the launch, General Manager of POCO India, Manmohan Chandolu said, "Over the last two years, we've evolved as a brand while maintaining focus on innovation".
I'm not surprised that the Poco M2 Pro is even priced exactly the same as the Redmi Note 9 Pro (after GST hike). The device is powered by the new 8nm-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and the smartphone is being offered in two variants- 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. This is faster than the 18W charging on the Redmi Note 9 Pro.
Anyways, as for our protagonist it has up to 128GB storage onboard. The device also gets a dedicated microSD card slot which supports up to 512GB memory. The rest of the non-main sensors are unchanged, which consists of a 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth camera. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel sensor housed in the hole-punch on the display. The phone comes with a 33W charger out-of-the-box.
Both the Poco M2 Pro and the Poco X2 run Android 10. There are three colour options to choose from including Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black. The 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model costs Rs. 14,999 and the top-end 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant costs Rs. 16,999. With Poco M2 Pro, Poco is now venturing into the budget segment, a space that is dominated by parent Xiaomi's Redmi. You also get the Poco launcher pre-installed on the phone.
