Poco unveils M2 Pro with Snapdragon 720G and hefty fast-charging battery for under $200

Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Poco started off with a spec-packed handset for less money but soon shifted to even more modest price segments to appeal to a broader userbase in markets like India. The last mid-ranger from Poco was the X2, and now the brand is bringing an even cheaper model. The latest entrant to the category is the Poco M2 Pro, which is an ambitious phone from Xiaomi costing a little under $200 in India.

Poco M2 Pro with quad cameras will launch on July 7

Xiaomi's Poco sub-brand rose to prominence in 2018 with the introduction of the truly flagship-killing Poco F1. The handset received pretty solid reviews, including our own which called it a lot of phone for the small price. Since then, Poco has released the follow-up to its initial hit in the form of the Poco X2 and the slightly higher end Poco F2 Pro. Now the value-focused brand is gearing up to launch a new phone for the mid-tier market: the Poco M2 Pro.

Poco F2 Pro debuts as basically a Redmi K30 Pro running the Poco launcher

Poco’s first phone created quite a stir back in 2018 when it came out rocking the then-flagship Snapdragon 845 chip for an astonishingly low price tag of about $300. It took the Xiaomi spin-off close to two years to deliver its hotly anticipated follow-up, which finally landed on a global stage today. Named F2 Pro, the 2020 Poco flagship has received a serious spec bump from the previous model but has lost the price advantage that helped the brand stand out in its early days.

Xiaomi spinoff Poco has an event next week to announce the long-rumored F2 Pro

There's no secret as to how Poco’s first phone — the F1 — rose to immense popularity in a short period: It gave its users a taste of flagship-class performance on a tight budget. The F1 hasn’t seen a proper follow-up since it was launched about two years back, though, and all we got in the meantime was a mid-ranger. The Xiaomi sub-brand will likely change that come May 12, when Poco is expected to unveil a new high-end phone.

Poco X2 announced with 120Hz display, Snapdragon 730G, and six cameras for around $225

Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Poco made a splash with its first phone by bringing a Snapdragon 845 chip to the $300 price bracket, reminding many of OnePlus’s early days. A year and a half after the Poco F1 was unveiled, the company is finally coming out with a follow-up called the Poco X2, initially only for the Indian market. The handset is basically a relabeled Redmi K30, which was announced in China alongside the $284 K30 5G in December 2019.

Poco F1 picks up Android 10 beta with MIUI 11

Although many of Xiaomi's devices have already picked up a taste of Android 10 courtesy of MIUI 11, the popular budget flagship Poco F1 has been curiously excluded to date. That changes now that it's an independent brand, as the first official Android 10 release lands for the device, though it is a beta that you have to manually flash via TWRP — pretty weird.

Only one phone was ever released under the Poco name, the wildly-successful Poco F1, which was developed by Xiaomi. Poco is now being spun off as Xiaomi's new sub-brand, with a (somewhat) independent team.

Xiaomi is bringing Android Q to 13 phones starting this fall

Chinese Android phone makers have it rough when it comes to bringing on software updates to their customers. There's a totally different expectation as to how long these devices get supported there and the issue gets compounded when taking into account the proprietary UIs and services for each OEM's spin on the OS. In Xiaomi's case, it has taken up the challenge of bringing at least 13 devices up to Android Q over the next year.
