POCO M2 price in India (expected)

POCO M2 price in India is speculated to be under Rs 10,000 for the base variant. Like the company’s other models, there should be multiple RAM/storage options for users to choose from. POCO claims the POCO M2 is the most affordable 6GB RAM phone, which suggests the variant will be priced around Rs 10,000, while a possible 4GB RAM model will be under Rs 10,000. POCO M2 is already listed on Flipkart and will go on sale on the e-commerce platform following the launch.

POCO M2 specifications

POCO M2 is confirmed to come with a Full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. The phone is confirmed to come in a 6GB RAM option, but there could be a 4GB RAM variant as well. There is no word yet on the storage options for the POCO M2. The POCO M2 is likely to run Android 10-based MIUI 12 with the POCO launcher on top. Standard connectivity features could include 4G LTE, dual SIM support, and GPS. Moving to optics, not a lot is known but we can speculate it may have multiple camera lenses. The young brand is also teasing a big battery capacity, but this information is still under wraps.

POCO M2 versus the competition

The POCO M2, when launched, will look to take on the latest Redmi 9 Prime that comes with a Full HD+ display under Rs 10,000. Assuming the POCO phone is priced around Rs 10,000, other rivals may include the Realme C15 and Samsung Galaxy M01s.
