POCO M2 is expected to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, and also have a 6GB RAM performance variant to boot.


POCO M2 is slated to launch in the coming days. Now, days ahead of its September 8 launch, POCO India’s Twitter handle has teased the launch of the upcoming smartphone after officially announcing it yesterday, labelling it as the “most affordable 6GB RAM phone”. The Xiaomi spin-off brand is slated to host a launch event next week, where multiple variants of the smartphone is expected to be launched. It is expected to be a mid-range smartphone, and may come with more than one variant as well – include M2 Lite and M2 Pro.

POCO M2 expected specifications

According to rumours, POCO M2 is expected to be powered by MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, and come with 4GB RAM in its base variant. According to POCO India’s recent tweet, a 6GB RAM variant is also on the cards for the POCO M2, although it is also possible that only the POCO M2 Pro gets the 6GB RAM variant. That said, with the POCO M2 being touted as India’s most affordable 6GB phone, it is possible that the POCO M2 itself will also get a 6GB RAM variant.
