Poco M2 is now confirmed to feature a Full HD+ display and will come with at least 6GB of RAM, ahead of its official launch on September 8. Poco M2 will be announced for India just a day after the global unveiling of the Poco X3 NFC. However, the Poco M2 is likely a toned-down version of the Poco M2 Pro that was launched back in July. While the Poco X3 NFC is the successor to the Poco X2 and is touted to be the world’s first smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor that was announced earlier this week.
Poco has started teasing the key specifications of the Poco M2 in the heads up to the launch. In a series of posts, the company’s official social media handles have revealed that the Poco M2 will feature a Full HD+ display and will have at least 6GB RAM to boot. Here, the base variant can either start with 6GB RAM or Poco could be hinting that the 6GB RAM will be the maxed-out version.

It comes with a quad-camera setup on the back which is positioned in the top centre, accompanied by a fingerprint reader.
The Redmi Note 9 features a 48MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 118-degree field-of-view, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor supported by an LED flash. The rear cameras can record in 1080p at 30FPS. On the front, there is a 13MP selfie camera housed within the punch-hole display that can also record in 1080p at 30FPS.
