The teasers suggest that the RAM, display size, battery capacity and the cameras will be the key highlights of the Poco M2. It will have a mini-dot notch surrounded by a display spanning almost 6.5-inches. Since the Poco M2 Pro was a Redmi Note 9 Pro in disguise, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Poco M2 too takes a few cues from another Xiaomi smartphone.
Looking at the currently available information and design, the Poco M2 could be based on the Redmi 9 or the Redmi 9 Prime that recently launched in India. There could be minor changes though.
Since the Poco M2 Pro price starts at Rs 13,999 in India, the Poco M2 could start at an even lesser price point and could well be the most affordable Poco device till date. The Redmi 9 Prime is currently priced under Rs 10,000 in India.
For context, the Redmi 9 Prime offers a 6.53-inch Full HD+ LCD screen with a dew-drop notch. On the inside, the device is powered by Mediatek’s Helio G80 SoC. It is paired 4GB of RAM and comes in two storage options – 64GB and 128GB. There is also a microSD card slot.
On to the cameras, the Redmi 9 Prime has a quad-camera stack at the rear with a 13MP f/2.2 main lens, an 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor. The front has an 8MP sensor tucked underneath the notch for taking selfies. All this is backed up by a huge 5,020mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
