Poco M2 = Redmi 9 Prime

The firm has been teasing the Poco M2’s options separately on its dedicated microsite on Flipkart. We already know that the smartphone will embody a Full-HD+ show and as much as 6GB RAM. But, the web site has been up to date at present to disclose that Poco M2 will function a quad-camera array. The factor that can, nonetheless, catch everybody’s eye is the truth that the digicam array appears precisely just like the digicam system aboard the Redmi 9 Prime. You actually have a capacitive fingerprint sensor under the digicam array.

This means that Poco M2 will likely be a rebranded Redmi 9 Prime. It’s at the moment unknown whether or not the corporate will change something within the digicam setup.

Rebranding Saga Continues

Poco’s presence in India will be thought of as a ‘dumping ground’ as in comparison with the worldwide markets. On one hand, the Chinese large is gearing as much as take the wraps off the Poco X3 (successor to Poco X2 that debuted in India earlier this 12 months) globally. It would be the firm’s first unique providing and never a rebranded gadget. But however, it’s going to rebrand and launch an already accessible cellphone (Redmi 9 Prime) in India because the Poco M2.

Poco’s model technique has gone from being the model that launched a flagship killer within the type of Poco F1 a few years in the past to the rebrand king in six months of 2020. I imply, Poco X2 marked the corporate’s comeback and it was a Redmi Ok30 4G rebrand. It had a shameless ‘Designed by Poco’ branding on the rear as effectively. This doesn’t imply it’s a unhealthy cellphone in any manner however it did exchange what may have truly been the Redmi Ok20 successor in India. It all appears to go downhill from right here although.

Poco M2 Pro arrived in India again in July as a rebranded model of the worldwide variant of the Redmi Note 9 Pro.

And now, Poco M2 is alleged to reach as its youthful sibling and it’ll most definitely be the rebranded model of the Redmi 9 Prime that launched in India final month. The gadget touts a Full-HD+ show, quad-camera array that appears just like the Redmi 9 Prime, and as much as 6GB of RAM.

So yeah, it’s time we name out Poco for turning right into a model that has no course and solely seems to be appearing on the whim of the higher-ups who need this model to exist alongside the Redmi and Mi model to satiate the client’s want for Poco telephones. The firm is tone-deaf to the client suggestions and what they need from them. At this cut-off date, Poco must take a while off and mull its model technique as a substitute of merely pasting a ‘Designed by Poco’ brand on Redmi telephones which might be already accessible in India.

I wager Poco M2 will likely be a terrific finances cellphone, the most effective value-for-money choices, within the sub-Rs. 10,000 section. Where does this go away the Redmi 9 Prime although? And if each the telephones supply the very same options and design? Which one would the customers decide? It is all simply turning into a giant mess at this level.
