After launching the POCO X3 Pro late last month, POCO is back again with a new smartphone for the Indian market. The company just unveiled the POCO M2 Reloaded, a new variant of the existing POCO M2 that launched in September last year. The POCO M2 Reloaded is just the POCO M2 but with lesser RAM and a cheaper price tag.

|Software||Android 10 with MIUI 11 for POCO|
The amount of RAM is the only real difference between the POCO M2 Reloaded and the standard POCO M2. Everything else is unchanged. That means you’re still getting a 6.53-inch LCD FHD+ display, MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, a quad rear camera setup headlined by a 13MP primary shooter, an 8MP front camera, a 5,000mAh battery, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a USB Type C port. While the original POCO M2 came in 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB configuration, the POCO M2 Reloaded dials down the amount of RAM to 4GB in favor of a cheaper price tag.
Pricing & Availability
The POCO M2 Reloaded comes in only RAM configuration: 4GB + 64GB. The phone comes in two colors: Pitch Black and Slate Blue. It will go on sale exclusively from Flipkart starting April 21 at 3 PM IST at ₹9,499 (~$125). POCO is touting it as the cheapest phone with an FHD+ display. And that’s certainly true as most devices in this price range, including the Galaxy M12 and Realme C25, currently only offer an HD+ panel.
