POCO M2 has sold over 1 million units in India since its launch in September 2020. The company claims it is currently the third-largest online smartphone brand, probably behind Xiaomi and Realme. The POCO M2 was launched at a price of Rs 10,999 for the base model with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage and goes all the way up to Rs 12,499 for the same amount of RAM and higher 128GB storage. However, the phone is currently selling on Flipkart at a slightly lower price tag of Rs 9999 for the base model and Rs 10,999 for the high-end variant (even cheaper if you have an ICICI bank card). POCO M2 will soon get a successor — POCO M3 — that is scheduled to launch in the country on February 2nd.
