Earlier this year Poco became what Xiaomi called an independent brand to date. However, it continues to share resources with Xiaomi, for example, in product development research.
This caused the brand to launch the Poco F2 Pro globally as a version with another name for the Redmi K30 Pro launched in China. And the same should happen with your next cheap smartphone.
The TUV Rheinland certification discovered by XDA-Developers shows that the Redmi 9 can be launched in some markets such as Poco M2. Which means it will be a real disappointment for anyone who wants a truly unique device.
Furthermore, taking into account that Redmi 9 is already available in Portugal, the possible Poco M2 will not reach our market. This may be a device launched exclusively in India.
This seems to be yet another page in the confused ‘book’ of Xiaomi’s smartphone lines and sub-brands. It should be recalled that the Redmi K30 4G, never released globally, is also the Poco X2 in India.
If these suspicions are confirmed, this will be another piece of equipment with no relevance to the European market. We hope that in the future Poco may surprise us with truly unique devices, similar to the Pocophone F1.
