Xiaomi has been on a roll in recent years as its products have been embraced by a public that enjoys high-quality goods at an affordable price. Unlike some smartphone manufacturers who tend to focus on a specific niche, Xiaomi has offered devices for all ranges, a move that has been well-received by the public.
After the release of the POCO X2 earlier in 2020, industry sources announced that a new POCO smartphone was in the making, a flagship device known under the name of the POCO F2 Pro. However, new data infers that a new mid-range model could be found soon.
Called POCO M2 Pro, the model was observed by eagle-eyed internet users on the Mi India website. It was featured in a section that explores more details about the SAR testing results. The device is listed under the model name of M2003J6CI.
A popular source has also mentioned that the device is listed under the codename gram. This source claimed an entry on a firmware list that mentions the device alongside the _in_global tag, which suggests that the phone might be released in India soon. There might be an association with the Redmi Note 9 Pro, as the codename gram appeared in a firmware listing for the device.
Many believe that the device will be based on the Remi Note 9 Pro. As such, it may employ the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, but it is hard to provide a definite answer at this point since it may run a firmware version that is compatible with the Snapdragon 720G, a choice that may also explain the gram codename.
A listing for the device, under the name of POCO M2 Pro, has appeared on several certification websites, with the model number being a match. The device has been certified for Bluetooth and Wi-FI
