As scheduled, POCO has officially launched the POCO M2 Reloaded in India. The newly released smartphone is nothing but the good old POCO M2 with lower RAM and cheaper pricing. Going by the announcement posts on Twitter, the brand is re-releasing the handset to take a dig at other companies that still keep on launching phones with an HD+ display in the sub-₹15,000 ($199) price segment.
POCO M2 Reloaded Specifications and Features
The newly launched POCO M2 Reloaded differs from the original merely on the basis of two factors. The new model only comes in a single 4GB + 64GB storage configuration and two colors (Pitch Black, Slate Blue) instead of two storage variants (6GB + 6GB, 6GB + 128GB) and three colors (Brick Red). Apart from these two differences, the POCO M2 Reloaded is basically a POCO M2 inside out.
Hence, the POCO M2 Reloaded flaunts a 6.53-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD panel with 394 PPI, 1500:1 contrast ratio, 70% NTSC color gamut, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and a dewdrop notch. The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC coupled with LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC storage.
Further, the handset houses a quad-camera setup on the back consisting of a 13MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, a 5MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor. Whereas, on the front, it sports an 8MP shooter for selfies and video calls.
On the connectivity front, the phone supports dual-SIM, 4G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GNSS (GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou). It also has all the essential sensors and ports like a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, infrared sensor, MicroSD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port.
Last but not least, the POCO M2 Reloaded runs MIUI 12 based on Android 10 backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. It measures 163.3 x 77.8 x 9.1mm in dimensions and weighs 198g.
POCO M2 Reloaded Price and Availability
The POCO M2 Reloaded is priced at ₹9,499 ($126) in India. It will be sold exclusively on Flipkart like other POCO products. The first sale of the smartphone is scheduled for 3 PM today.
