The Poco M2 Pro has made its debut in India today and it's the least interesting phone to me. This means Poco M2 Pro includes a punch-hole display, Snapdragon 720G, 48MP quad-cameras, and more. There are three price tags as well for the different memory variants - the 4/64 GB is INR13,999 ($185/€165), the 6/64 GB option is INR14,999 ($200/€175), while the 6/128 GB's price is INR16,999 ($225/€200). The Poco M2 Pro costs ₹13,999, ₹14,999 and ₹16,999 for the 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB respectively.

Poco has no plans of launching the Poco F2 Pro in India just yet. For selfies, the punch-hole on the screen houses a 16MP selfie camera. The first phone to arrive under the new M-series is the Poco M2 Pro.

In terms of camera, the quad camera setup at the back includes a 48 MP primary wide-angle camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, a 5 MP macro sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. The phone uses a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which also acts as power button. The smartphone also comes with fast charging support. It's a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro that's already available in India, with the design and charging capabilities from the global variant. You can select from Out of the Blue, Green, and Greener, and Two Shades of Black shades. The camera module is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. But it can be expanded to up to 512GB through a dedicated card slot. According to the Wi-Fi certification website, the smartphone is likely to run on MIUI 11 out of the box based on Android 10-based operating system.

As for the connectivity aspects, the device offers a USB Type-C port which is placed alongside the 3.5mm headphone jack and the speaker grille at the bottom. The device will go on sale starting 14th July at 12pm on Flipkart. Backing it up is a 5,000 mAh battery and the device will ship with 33W fast charger. The 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model will be available at 14,999 and the 6GB RAM+128GB storage model is priced at Rs.16,999.
