POCO has been playing hide and seek with its fans in India for a while now regarding its next launch in the country. There were rumours of the POCO F2 or POCO F2 Pro launching in India, which were denied by the brand. Meanwhile, a new device named POCO M2 Pro was spotted on the official website confirming that it will be the next smartphone launch from the brand in India.
The POCO M2 Pro was also spotted on the website of BIS certification of India, hinting at the imminent launch in the country. Now, the company has announced the launch date of the smartphone through its Twitter handle. POCO has also shared a GIF teasing the smartphone, which reveals at least two details including the camera setup and fast charging.

According to the tweet from the brand, the POCO M2 Pro will be launched in India on July 7th at 12pm. As is the norm these days, the smartphone will be launched through an online-only event that will be live-streamed for the fans. The company also linked the Flipkart microsite for the handset in the tweet, confirming that the smartphone will be available on Flipkart.
The microsite has several teasers and a couple of videos hinting at the presence of fast charging in the POCO M2 Pro. In one of the videos, we can spot an indented power button in the silhouette of the handset confirming the presence of side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Additionally, the GIF shared by the brand on Twitter reveals a square-shaped quad-camera module on the back, similar to the one we saw on Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max (review).
Unfortunately, this is all that we know about the upcoming device at the moment. We should know more next week when the handset goes official, so stay tuned.
