Angus Kai Ho Ng took to Twitter to post a teaser image of the upcoming POCO smartphone. As you can see below, the image looks to be a marketing teaser for the device with a tagline, “More than you expect”. Although he has cleverly hidden the marketing name, it is speculated that the device could be the POCO M3 and mark the debut of “M” series globally.

POCO Global has so far limited the Global portfolio with POCO F, and X series devices. The company’s Indian division has, however, been launching devices under the X, M, and C series. That said the second and third series are mostly the rebranded versions of the Redmi Smartphones. For instance, if you take the POCO M2 Pro, M2, C3, they are rebrand of Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi 9, and Redmi 9C respectively.

New POCO- yet another rebrand?

Anyway, the naming isn’t confirmed yet but either way, it looks like the new POCO device will also be a rebrand as the earlier IMDA

, EEC certifications hint the same. Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Redmi Note 9 series in China. Out of the three models, a 4G model(M2010J19SC) is likely to break cover. Recently, a suspected Indian variant(M2010J19SI) of the device hit the Geekbench with a probable Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC.

Today, Mysmartprice has spotted the Geekbench listing of the POCO device with a similar model number(M2010J19CG) and scores. Accordingly, the device in question scores 299 and 1252 single and multi-core scores respectively. Although the motherboard(citrus) is different here, the base frequency of CPU(1.80GHz), and GPU(Adreno 610) hints that Snapdragon 662 could power both of them.


That said, the listing also shows that the device runs Android 10, and has 4GB RAM. Anyway, if the rebrand indeed turns out to be true, the device would feature a unique rear design, 6.53-inch FHD+ display, 48MP rear and 8MP selfie shooter, 6,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging. Let’s wait for more teasers to confirm the same.
