Poco M2 Pro launched with a quad-camera setup, support for 33W fast charging, and more
Poco has officially launched the Poco M2 Pro in India. All of Poco's 2020 releases have been rebranded Redmi phones. The Poco M2 Pro is no different, as it appears to be a Redmi Note 9 Pro with a fresh coat of paint.
Interestingly enough, the Poco M2 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro are priced identically. The Poco M2 Pro's base version comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and retails at INR 13,999 (US$187). There's a 6GB/64GB version too, and it'll set you back by INR 14,999 (US$200). The maxed-out version of the device comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It costs INR 16,999 (US$227). The smartphone will be up for grabs starting July 14th on Flipkart. Its availability on other platforms is unknown at this point.
The Poco M2 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel sandwiched between two layers of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC powers it along with an Adreno 612 GPU. It is compatible with Qualcomm's Elite Gaming Phone technology, which is a bit of a rarity at this segment. Furthermore, the phone comes with a 5,000mAh battery that supports fast charging at up to 33W. It is quite an upgrade from the Redmi Note 9 Pro's 18W limit. You even get a 33W charger out of the box. On top of GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou, the phone also supports India's NavIC navigation system.
The Poco M2 Pro's quad-camera setup consists of a 48MP wide-angle sensor at the helm assisted by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Selfies are taken care of by a 16MP camera. Some of the camera-centric software features include Pro Video mode, Night Mode for the selfie camera, Pro Color mode, and more. Some of the phone's other features include support for 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
