After a bit of halt, Poco has made a comeback in the Nepali market with its Poco M2 mid-ranger. The launch comes a year and a half after they unveiled the beloved Poco F1, which sold like hotcakes in the market.
The Poco M2 is not as exciting as the F1 but it does bring some pretty good specs to the table (at least on par with the M2 Pro). The only eking point here is that if you compare this phone side by side with the Redmi 9, it sounds like a rebranded phone. Regardless, the specs are still not that bad — a 6.53-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection underneath.
You have a MediaTek Helio G80 processor paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB eMMC 5.1 onboard storage, expandable up to 512GB via dedicated microSD slot. The phone runs on MIUI 12 layered on top of Android 10 out of the box.
For optics, there’s an f/2.2 13MP wide sensor, an 8MP ultrawide sensor with an f/2.2 lens, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor alongside an LED flash. Meanwhile, at the front is a single 27mm wide 8MP sensor with HDR for selfies.
The Poco M2 also brings a loudspeaker, 3.5mm audio jack, A2DP Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB 2.0 with USB On-The-Go, and Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. It also has P2i water-repelling nano-coating, IR Blaster, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Powering all the needs and necessities is a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
