Xiaomi‘s sub-brand Poco came up with a smartphone last month, Poco X3 Pro. At the moment, the company is introducing a new device for the Indian audience, Poco M2 Reloaded. The name itself gives the hint that the device is nothing but a lighter and cheaper version of Poco M2 launched in Q3 last year.

The Reloaded variant of Poco M2 only differs in terms of RAM storage and camera from the original one. The rest of the specifications i.e; design and features remain similar to Poco M2. Also, it will be the first smartphone to support an FHD+ display in this segment.
