Poco may be developing a new smart phone. The company’s product marketing manager and global spokesperson Angus (Angus Kai Ho Ng) confirmed that the new phone may be available soon and is expected to be launched before the end of 2020. The Poco phone was also found on the certification website, and its model number is similar to that of Redmi Note 10, indicating that it may be renamed. The company launched several smart phones starting from Poco X2 in February this year. Poco subsequently launched Poco M2 Pro in July, and Poco M2 was officially released in September. Poco X3 was launched in the same month, and the affordable Poco C3 was launched in October.
administration staff Tweet The company is developing new products and will launch this year. The post read: “Quiet for a while….It’s almost the end of the year…. Just want to say. Poco is not finished this year.” This indicates that there will be a new phone. However, it can also be speculated that Poco will expand into completely different product categories and launch smart watches or other IoT products.
According to reports, a new Poco phone was recently discovered on the Russian certification website EEC with the model number M2010J19CG. The Chinese version with the same model is associated with the Redmi Note 10 series, suggesting that the upcoming Poco phone may be another Redmi brand.
The Poco M2 Pro, launched earlier this year, has received great popularity as the name change of Redmi Note 9 Pro. In addition to better fast charging support, the specifications of this phone are the same as Redmi Note 9 Pro. The EEC certification indicates that Poco may be seeking to launch another rebranded Redmi phone. Whether the company follows the same trend again remains to be seen.
The upcoming Poco phone may also be a completely different phone instead of a re-labeled Redmi variant, and we hope that this will become clearer in the near future.
