After the launch Poco F1 back in 2018, we didn’t hear much from the brand for almost two years. However, since the start of 2020, we have already seen two big releases in the form of Poco X2 and Poco F2 Pro. And it looks like another smartphone dubbed Poco M2 Pro is on its way. Check out all the rumors, leaks, specs of Poco M2 Pro here.
Poco M2 Pro: Rumors Roundup
We first heard about the alleged Poco M2 Pro when Xiaomishka, a popular tipster, tweeted that a new smartphone with the model number M2003J6CI will be heading towards the Indian sub-continent later this year (“I” suffix on the Redmi model number usually means Indian release). He also mentioned that the device would have a resemblance to Redmi Note 9 series. All of this information was out when Poco Global was teasing the Poco F2 Pro.
After almost a month, we now have more concrete information about the Poco M2 Pro. First, the device did appear on Xiaomi India’s official website. The smartphone was on RF exposure page alongside fellow Mi and Poco devices. Lately, the device has surfaced on numerous certification pages with the model number suggested by Xiaomishka. The smartphone has gone through Wi-Fi Alliance certifications and Bluetooth SIG certifications. These certifications have revealed that the Poco M2 Pro will run on Android 10. It will support dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v5.0.
Yet another rebrand?
Xiaomishka’s claims about the Poco M2 Pro being a rebadged Redmi phone has been further backed by XDA Developers. According to XDA Developers, the Poco M2 Pro has been code-named “gram.” It is believed that the code name “gram” is a part of the kernel code of Redmi Note 9 Pro.
It is still unclear if all of this is true, but there is a strong possibility that the Poco M2 Pro will have the same Snapdragon 720G as in Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
Poco M2 Pro Launch, Price, Availability (Expected)
Poco M2 Pro will be exclusive to the Indian sub-continent market and could launch next month. There is no official information regarding the price and specs of Poco M2 Pro. However, we can expect the Poco M2 Pro to be a budget offering and should carry a price of under INR. 15,000 (approx Rs. 25,000 Nepali).
