Poco M2 Goes Official In Nepal With Helio G80 CPU & 6GB RAM
POCO as a brand was loved immensely by the consumers, here in Nepal after the introduction of POCO F1, back in 2018. Now, POCO is bak with two of the latest devices in Nepal, POCO C3 and POCO M2. We already talked about the Poco C3 in our previous article. Now, let’s have a look at what POCO M2 has to offer.
Design & Display
POCO M2 comes with a plastic body with the texture back. At the front, we have a 6.53 inches FHD+ display with a drop notch. While the back house Quad camera setup, LED Flash, and a fingerprint sensor with POCO branding at the bottom. The display in the front is protected with Gorilla Glass 3 and supports 400 nits of maximum brightness. The devices weigh around 198g and have a water repellent coating.
Talking about the cameras, at the back we get a quad-camera set-up with 13MP f/2.2 primary shooter, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide along with 5MP f/2.4 macro lens, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. While at the front, inside a drop notch we get an 8MP f/2.0 shooter. Earlier launched Redmi 9 packed the same camera setup and did a commendable job under the 20K department and we expect the same from POCO M2. You can even get better results if you use a compatible G-Cam port.
Performance & Battery
Under the hood, POCO M2 comes with Mediatek Helio G-80 SoC. It is an Octa-core CPU with 2×2.0 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.8 GHz Cortex-A55 and Mali-G52 MC2. It is one of the best lower mid-range gaming SoC in 2020. This when coupled up with 6GB of RAM, can give you a serious bang for your buck. While the 64GB and 128GB internal storage used is eMMC 5.1.
A powerful SoC requires a powerful battery. So, POCO M2 comes with a 5000mAh large battery with 18W fast charging via the Type-C port.
The device comes with MIUI 12 and Android 10 out of the box along with the POCO launcher. It also has an IR blaster at the top.
