POCO M2 Pro could be mid-range phone with Snapdragon 720GMay 7, 2020
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.
