The new Poco M2 Pro just landed in India and happens to be the second device carrying the Poco brand to be launched in the country in 2020. The M2 Pro is also out to make its presence felt in the sub Rs. 15k price bracket which is one of the most competitive mobile segments in the country.
The new M2 Pro, however, comes with all that is needed to impress buyers, which includes the looks, build quality, specs features. For instance, there is the 6.7-inch full HD+ 60 Hz LCD display up front. The display features a tiny punch hole placed along the top middle while bezel depth all around is just the bare minimum.
Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 720G which works in tandem with the Adreno 618 GPU. The phone is available in three trim levels which include the base model that offers 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Thereafter, it is the model with 6 GB of RAM and the same 64 GB of storage.

So far as optics are concerned, the Poco M2 Pro comes with a quad camera setup at the rear. That includes a 48 mp primary camera that is complemented by an 8 mp ultra wide angle lens, a 5 mp macro lens and a 2 mp depth shooter.
