Xiaomi’s Poco M2 Pro is now official in India, bringing the brand’s popular price-to-performance ratio to the budget segment.

The Poco M2 Pro is a performance and battery-centric smartphone that marks the company’s entry into the budget segment of under Rs 15,000. It borrows a few design cues from the Redmi Note 9 family to be able to achieve this feat.

For starters, the Poco M2 Pro is powered by the 8nm octa-core Snapdragon 720G chipset with LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 storage for one of the best-in-class performance packages. The storage can also be expanded via micro SD.

It brings a familiar design with a Gorilla Glass 5 sandwich that protects the front, back as well as the camera. The front sports a big 6.67-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080. Owing to its construction, the fingerprint scanner is embedded in the power button on the side. The display has a punch-hole notch located in the centre for the selfie camera.

Speaking of cameras, the Poco M2 Pro has a quad-camera setup on the rear, starting with a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, a 5MP macro lens and a depth sensor. The front camera has a resolution of 16MP. It brings a full-fledged manual camera that can be used for stills as well as videos. RAW image capture is available, too.

The battery is one of the key talking points of the Poco M2 Pro, as it houses a big 5,000mAh pack which supports 33W fast charging over USB Type-C. This is one of the fastest charging stats in the segment. The entire package is also P2i splash-resistant. The Phone runs on MIUI 11 out-of-the-box, with Poco launcher 2.0 on top.
