Additionally, the official Poco Global account replied to the tweet, in a method, confirming an upcoming Poco smartphone. Poco’s tweet seems to suggest that it might be a while before the device is announced officially. Although, there’s no further information about the upcoming Poco phone. However, now that the official marketing machinery is up and running, it’s only a matter of time before we get more detail on this.
This year, Poco has already released three smartphones, including the flagship Poco F2 Pro. The other two devices are Poco X2 and the Poco M2 Pro which fall into mid-ranger category. However, what has upset many avid Poco fans is that all three phones are rebranded Redmi phones with some minor tweaks. The F2 Pro is basically a transformed version of Redmi K30 Pro 5G, while the Poco X2 is a rebranded Redmi K30. The Poco M2 Pro, meanwhile, is a little tweaked Redmi Note 9 Pro.

It is available in two configurations namely 8GB + 128GB priced at Rs. 27,999 and 12GB + 256GB priced at Rs. 29,999. The 6GB + 64GB variant will go on sale in India later in September and is priced at Rs. 24,999. The upcoming Poco smartphone can also be expected to have similar pricing and will also likely be a brand-engineered Redmi phone.
