POCO M2 Pro spotted on Xiaomi’s India website, could launch soon

On: May 6, 2020

POCO is gearing up to launch a new smartphone globally in coming days as suggested by recent teasers shared by the brand. The company recently posted a video montage of all tweets by fans asking for the POCO F1 successor, which fanned the rumours of the POCO F2 or POCO F2 Pro launching in India. However, a new leak suggests that the next launch from the brand in the country will not be an F-series device.

POCO has done this already with the launch of POCO X2 (first impressions), which was initially rumoured to be the POCO F2, but later arrived as the re-badged Redmi K30. Now, it seems that the company might pull the same trick again as a new device named M2 Pro has been spotted on the official website. Here’s what you need to know.
