Poco M2 expected specifications

The Poco M2 seems like another classic case of a rebranded Redmi smartphone. The Poco X2 was a Redmi K30 4G from China whereas the Poco M2 Pro was a beefed-up Redmi Note 9 Pro. Based on the speculations, the Poco M2 could be just another rebranded Redmi 9 with a few tweaks. In fact, it could be just another Redmi 9C from the global market.

That means the Poco M2 will end up with a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset paired with up to 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. There will be a 6.5-inch LCD display with 720p resolution The phone will be powered by a 5000mAh battery and a 10W charger will accompany it. A dual rear camera setup could be there as well, with a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The front camera will have a 5-megapixel sensor.

With the upcoming phone, the company would go up against the Realme C12 and Realme C15 in the sub-Rs 10,000 segment. Poco could offer faster charging as well as offer new color options on the M2 as compared to Redmi 9.

Poco X3 shaping up to be an original

While the Poco M2 is looking like another rebranding job, the Poco X3 appears to be a completely new device. Based on the leaks and teasers, the X3 will replace the Poco X2 but still adhere to 4G connectivity. The phone will use the newer Snapdragon 732G chipset and get a new design for the rear. The display will retain a 120Hz LCD panel with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera.
