The Poco M2 Pro has been unveiled in India today through an online launch. The device was widely believed to be a rebranded Redmi Note 9 Pro, and here we have basically the same internals and camera, barring its aesthetics.
One shouldn’t expect the phone to give flagship-like experience but it’s for people who want to get their job done with pretty impressive battery life. The phone has a 5,000mAh battery with a 33W fast charger inside the box, which is a significant upgrade from Redmi Note 9 Pro’s mere 18W. Poco claims the fast charge should top up the 50-percent battery in just 30 minutes. And with the Snapdragon 720G processor, also seen on the Note 9 Pro, the phone should last a day or two.
The M2 Pro has a similar 6.67-inch 1080p LCD panel with a punch-hole at the top that holds a 16MP selfie camera. The fingerprint scanner resides at the side into the power button. We can see the two-tone finish at the back; it holds a quad-camera setup: 48MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth. The camera setup is undeniably similar to what you would see on the Redmi Note 9 Pro.
The phone has three color options namely green and greener, two shades of black, and out of the blue, with two memory options; 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage. There’s a microSD card slot as well.
The Poco M2 Pro is priced at INR 13,999 (~ NRs. 22,398) for the 4GB/64GB variant, while the 6GB/64GB variant will cost INR 14,999 (~ NRs. 23,998), and for 6GB/128GB you’ll have to pay INR 16,999 (~ NRs. 27,198). The phone will go on sale in India exclusively through Flipkart on July 14th. The availability of the Poco M2 Pro in Nepal is yet to be known.
