If on the one hand we can appreciate that the POCO company introduces interesting devices with an excellent quality / price ratio to the global market, such as the recent POCO F2 Pro, unfortunately, we cannot help but rage that the Indian company has little if nothing original to offer to the smartphone market. In fact, after removing the first and glorious POCOPHONE F1, the rest of the list of devices that arrived on the market turned out to be simple rebrands of the terminals that Redmi launched in China and that would have seen no light in the West.
The hopes of novelty then poured out towards the talked-about POCO M2 Pro, terminal that the company should launch in July, but apparently this model could also be yet another rebrand, this time of the Redmi 9, recently also arrived in Italy.
And the strange thing is that Redmi 9 is already a Global type smartphone so where is the sense of the future economic smartphone branded POCO? The XDA-Developers team that discovered the certification that appeared on the database gave us the news TÜV Rheinlad, of a POCO smartphone with the model number corresponding to Redmi 9.
Here we go again ... POCO M2 Pro will be the umpteenth rebrand of a Redmi smartphone?
The screen above shows us a smartphone of the POCO brand with numbering M2004J19PI, the same model number previously certified as Redmi 9. Probably therefore POCO M2 Pro (if this is ever the name) could be destined only for the Indian market. Taking this into account, the Indians will find themselves in front of an inexpensive device characterized by MediaTek Helio G80 CPU accompanied by 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal storage.
The screen will have a 6,53-inch diagonal in Full HD + resolution as well as boasting a 5020 mAh battery and NFC sensor. Definitely interesting but why not enter Redmi 9 directly into the Indian market? Whether it is POCO M2 Pro or another model, does it make sense to have a smartphone company on the payroll that does not bring any innovation if not to base the marketing strategy on rebrands of devices from the same parent company?
