Poco Unveils Poco M2 Pro with Snapdragon 720G and a Quick-Charge Battery Worth Under $ 200
Xiaomi’s latest enticing entry into the low-budget smartphone segment Xiaomi
The Xiaomi Poco brand, which started with Xiaomi, started with a specific receiver for less money, but soon switched to even more modest price segments, to attract a broader user base in markets like India. Poco’s last mid-range ranger was the X2, and now the brand is bringing an even cheaper model. The latest entrant in this category is the Poco M2 Pro, which is an ambitious Xiaomi phone that costs just under $ 200 in India.
Before I asked you, no, it was never an M1 Pro; Poco just decided to use his first M series phone, the M2 Pro. And if this device reminds you of another Xiaomi phone, then it is in its place: Indian Poco M2 Pro is a renowned version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro that debuted in may. Although there are some differences, as the main 64MP camera has been changed to a 48MP one and you will get a faster marginal charging speed of 33W. All Poco branded phones also put the Poco launcher, which offers an Android-like interface, in the skin of the feature-rich MIUI software.
A fairly powerful Snapdragon 720G chip keeps everything running smoothly, along with up to 6GB of memory and 128GB of expandable storage. The LCD screen is near the edge, excluding the cutout of the perforated selfie camera, while the fingerprint reader is under the power key. On the other hand, you’ll find a four-camera panel, which includes that main 48MP sensor. The highlight of this phone should be its 5,000 mAh battery, which charges at a respectable speed of 33 W.
