Since setting foot on the market a few years ago, Poco hasn’t had a year like 2020 before. The company has been working on overdrive, launching a number of new phones in the process. And apparently, maybe it wasn’t done for the year.
If reports are to be believed, POCO is preparing to launch a new smartphone soon. The suggestion was made by the company’s product manager and global spokesperson, Angus Kai Ho Ng, who went ahead and officially announced the arrival of a new phone today. Interestingly, before the phone’s launch, the device was also spotted on Geekbench.
The list is quite interesting as it suggests that the device may not exactly be a new phone and may very well be a renamed Redmi smartphone. In the teaser image shared by the company, it can be seen that the device comes with a slogan, “More than you expect”, which could be a hint for a new Poco M series device: the Poco M3.
If this is indeed the Poco M3 he is alluding to, it would mean the line-up is finally going global as the phones until now were limited to select markets. In fact, globally the company was only selling devices with the X and F series phones.
Little M3: Specs expected
However, it may not be too exciting news for the global audience as the M and C series phones have been mostly rebrands of popular Redmi devices until now and as such it won’t come as a surprise if the Poco M3 ends up too. to be a renamed Redmi phone.
While there is no clear information on the exact phone that this Little Teased device could be a rebrand, however, there is some evidence to suggest that the phone could draw inspiration from the new Redmi Note 9 series of phones which is expected to launch in September. 24 in China.
As previously mentioned, there is no telling which device – if any – the new Poco phone will be based on, but there are reports that suggest the phone could run Android 10 at launch and carry 4GB of RAM. The device is also rumored to be equipped with a 6.53-inch FHD + display and houses a 48-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel selfie lens. The battery here is said to be a 6,000mAh pack with 22.5W fast charging.
