The Poco F2 Pro broke cover merely two weeks ago and we’re already hearing about another Poco phone in the works. This one is called the Poco M2 Pro and has just made an appearance (h/t: XDA Developers) on the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification websites with that very name.

So what do we know about the phone? Well, not much expect for the name and that it’s running MIUI 11. Check out the listings below, courtesy of XDA.

It was previously spotted on Xiaomi’s India website, on a page where Xiaomi lists the SAR values of its phones. That Poco M2 Pro listing has since been removed but you can see it in the archived version of the page here.

The device comes with the model number M2003J6CI and as per some XDA tipsters, is codenamed “gram.� The outlet notes that the same code name is also associated with the Redmi Note 9 Pro. This suggests that the Poco M2 Pro could get the same Snapdragon 720G chipset as the Redmi phone. However, this is just conjecture at the moment and the Poco M2 Pro could very well feature a completely different SoC.

Another rebranded Redmi phone?

Poco has been all over the place with its branding. We saw the Redmi K30 launch as the Poco X2 in India and the Redmi K30 Pro as the Poco F2 Pro in Europe. For all we know, the Poco M2 Pro could be another rebranded Redmi phone as that seems to be the strategy Poco is following until now.

We’ll update this article if and when we know more about the Poco M2 Pro. Until then, check out some more Poco news and features in the list below.
