Xiaomi Poco M2 Specification, Price, and Release Date

Poco M2 Features

The Xiaomi Poco M2 comes with an Helio G80 chipset paired with 6GB RAM. The phone runs on Android 10-based MIUI 11 out-of-the-box, and the manufacturer has promised to roll out MIUI 12 soon. The brand also said that the M2 will not come with any ads like other MIUI-running smartphones sold under the Mi and Redmi brand.

The Poco M2 is built around a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display that has a notch up top or the 8MP selfie camera. The display is protected by a Gorilla Glass 3.

The back of the Xiaomi Poco M2 has a two-tone pattern with “anti-fingerprint texture” and is home to a fingerprint scanner that’s accompanied by a quad-camera setup, comprising a 13MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor units.

Powering up the device is a 5000mAh battery that draws power through a USB-C port at up to 18W. However, the adapter in the box only supports 10W charging, which means you will have to spend more money if you want faster charging.

If all these features sound familiar to you, that is because the Xiaomi Poco M2 is not an entirely new smartphone. It shares most of its specs with the Redmi 9, which was launched in India as the Redmi 9 Prime.

Xiaomi Poco M2 Release Date

The Xiaomi Poco M2 release date is slated for September 15, 2020, and it will go on sale in India through Flipkart on the said date.
