The Poco M2 Pro is essentially a reworked version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro. The phone looks similar to the Redmi devices and borrows a majority of the latter’s specifications. The only difference between these two phones is the charging speed. The Poco M2 Pro gains a faster 33W fast wired charging system.
Poco M2 Pro Specifications
Rest of the phone is almost identical to the Redmi Note 9 Pro. Poco is using the same 6.67-inch IPS LCD Full HD+ display with narrow bezels and a small punch-hole cutout for the camera. This display cutout holds the 16-megapixel front camera. There’s a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the power key for biometric verification.
Inside, the M2 Pro uses a Snapdragon 720G chipset. This chipset is similar to the Snapdragon 730G but with slight compromises in performance. One can get up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The M2 Pro runs on MIUI 11 based on Android 10 and there’s the Poco Launcher 2.0 on top.
As for the cameras, it has a quad-camera setup consisting of a 48-megapixel main camera. This is accompanied by an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera and a depth camera. A 5020mAh battery keeps the phone alive, relying on a 33W fast-charging system.
