Performance

Poco M2 performance is just as good as you can expect with any premium smartphone. The performance of any budget-centric phone has never been this smooth under 15,000 INR, thanks to its Snapdragon 720G chipset!

Snapdragon 720G is an 8nm octa-core chipset that is powered with two high-performance Kryo Silver cores clocked at 1.8GHz and Kryo Gold cores clocked at 2.3Ghz. This chipset maintains a great balance between battery life and phone performance.

Both front and back camera setup help you capture clear and bright photos in daylight. The colours in the photos look rich and vibrant even without enabling the Pro Mode.
