On September 8, Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO released the POCO M2 in India. Its positioning is lower than the POCO M2 Pro released in the country in July. In fact, it will compete with the Realme Narzo 10 and other similar models.
The POCO M2 uses a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop design that hosts a selfie camera. The front is also covered with a Corning Gorilla Glass. The smartphone uses a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, supplemented by a 6GB RAM and a 128GB storage space. The latter can be expanded through the microSD card slot. This phone runs MIUI 12 based on Android 10, and its connection features include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, infrared transmitter, GPS, and a USB Type-C port for charging and data synchronization. This phone also uses P2i coating, which makes it waterproof.
In terms of camera, the POCO M2 sports a quad-camera module on the back. It consists of a 13MP main camera, an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, we can find an 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video chats. The phone has a rear fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, we can find a 5000mAh battery, which supports 18W fast charging.
The POCO M2 is priced at 10,999 rupees (about $149) for 6GB+64GB in India, and 12,499 rupees (about $169) for 6GB+128GB. It is available in three color options: asphalt black, slate blue and brick red. POCO M2’s first sale time is September 15.
