Yesterday, phone names like Redmi Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 10 and POCO M2 Pro had appeared on the RF exposure page of Xiaomi India. The Redmi Note 9 and Mi 10 phones that are yet to go official in India are still listed on the RF exposure page, but the POCO M2 Pro that has a model number of M2003J6CI can no longer be seen on it. While some claimed that POCO India will launch the POCO M2 Pro as a phone specially designed for India, others said that the moniker may have surfaced by mistake and it does not exist. A fresh report on XDA Developers reveals that the POCO M2 Pro could be a mid-range device driven by the Snapdragon 720G octa-core processor.
According to XDA tipsters, the M2003J6CI that is expected to debut as POCO M2 Pro is codenamed as “gram” and they also managed to find “gram_in_global” firmware. The publication claims that these findings suggests that the phone could be heading to India.
In March, Xiaomi India had launched Redmi Note 9 Pro (M2003J6A1I) and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max (M2003J6B1I) smartphones in India. It is being said that the POCO M2 Pro may have some points of sameness with the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Pro Max phones. The report further states that the “gram” codenamed was previously seen in Redmi Note 9 Pro’s kernel source code. The handset’s firmware also carried watermark for “gram.”
According to the publication, since the Redmi Note 9 Pro could be driven by the Snapdragon 720G octa-core processor, there is a possibility that the POCO M2 Pro may feature the same SoC. There is a possibility that the phone could be featuring some other Snapdragon 7 series chipset with compatible software.No tags for this post.
