Today, Poco launched the much-hyped Poco M2 Pro in India. Well, it is indeed the re-packaged version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro. Seems like becoming a norm for Poco as this the third phone that has been re-packaged by the brand after coming back, which is pretty disappointing who started off good with legendary Poco F1.
Moreover, there’s already Redmi Note 9 Pro available in the market which has similar specs, so M2 Pro with similar Specs but slightly tweaked back design & an upgraded fast charger. So it is basically the same phone with a different name, which makes no sense at all.
Poco M2: Design & Specifications.
As we said above, it is basically the same phone with the same display, similar button placement, ports, same length & weight. The only difference in terms of the design with the Note 9 Pro is the dual-tone finish of the rear panel & camera design which is also there on the Redmi Note 9 Pro (Global).
As far as specifications are concerned, here also there’s no change except for a faster-charging speed. So there’s 33W instead of 18W in the case of Redmi Note 9 Pro.
Poco M2 Pro features the same 6.67 inch punch-hole IPS LCD panel with 20:9 aspect ratio & FullHD+ resolution & there’s three-way protection on the front, back & camera unit by Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, the handset is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset & Adreno 618 GPU & is coupled with 4/6GB RAM & 64/128GB.
