Poco has released a new smartphone in India which is again a rebranded one. The name of the new device is Poco M2, and the brand has been advertising for a long. They were flooding on Twitter about the new device for a while. We were sure that they would be launching a rebranded device because the “Pro” variant was already a rebranded one. This time “Poco” has rebranded Redmi 9 Prime with more RAM. We have expected that they will include 18W charger in the box, but they didn’t include the same.

The Poco M2 sports the same 6.53 inches display with Full HD+ resolution. Further, it has a waterdrop notch. It also comes with Gorilla Glass3 protection, and also water-repellent coating. The brand advertises that it can go up to 400 nits of brightness. Underneath, it features the MediaTek Helio G80 SoC which pairs with 6GB of RAM. It has 64 or 128GB of storage.

Further, it also expandable via the micro SD card. The device runs on Android 10 on top of MIUI 11. They have promised that they will release MIUI 12 soon.

To the optics side, it features a quad-rear camera setup which has a 13MP primary sensor. An 8MP ultra-wide sensor follows it, and finally a 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. To the front, it gets an 8MP sensor which is inside the notch.

All this is backed a 5,000mAh battery which supports 18W fast charging tech. As said, you have to purchase the charger extra for getting the speed. Other specifications include a 3.5mm headphone jack, IR blaster, and supports up to 512GB via micro SD card.
