Poco was launched in 2018 in India and then expanded globally under the parent company Xiaomi. The first phone they launched was the infamous Poco F1 which disrupted the market by bringing the cheapest flagship killer in India.
Poco F1 was a huge success under Sub 30K price segment in India and other markets too.
Then we never heard about the successor of that beast and the company didn’t respond back then about anything. There was complete silence until Q1 2050 when the CEO of Xiaomi India issued a statement that poco is back and immediately within a week launched a midrange device Poco X2 and Poco F2 pro in the Flagship segment in the European markets. Poco Head also commented that Poco F2 pro will not Launch in India.
Now we were hearing so many rumours about the new poco device is in works and gradually we came to know about it when the leaks started coming in. A new poco Device was being registered on many certification websites one by one. The leaks also suggested that it is going to be midrange phone which means it is going to launch in the Sub 15K price segment. The name was also confirmed as Poco M2 pro as it appeared on certification websites.
Poco today announced their latest smartphone under sub 15K segment and as the leaks and teasers suggested it is actually the rebranded version of Redmi note 9 pro Indian variant with a slight design refresh which is same as Redmi note 9 global Variant with that two-tone finish. Also, they have added the 33W charger in the box from the redmi note 9 pro max.
