It is available in 'Out of the Blue', 'Green and Greener', and 'Two Shades of Black' color options.
The POCO M2 Pro features a quad rear camera setup, comprising a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor with LED flash. On the front, there is a single 16MP selfie snapper.
The POCO M2 Pro is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 720G chipset, coupled with up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage (expandable up to 512GB). The device runs on MIUI 11 for POCO and packs a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast-charging support. For connectivity, it offers support for dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11a/c, Bluetooth 5.0, a headphone jack, and a Type-C port.
