POCO has confirmed the existence of the M2 Pro, and is currently teasing it on Twitter and Flipkart ahead of its July 7, 2020 launch. These official leaks show some inextricable links between it and the pre-existing Redmi Note 9 Pro. For example, both phones are now known to have quad rear cameras and 33 watt (W) charging.

The POCO M2 Pro has been slated as a new mid-range phone headed to India for some time now. Its latest leaks suggest that it will have the same specs and looks as the Redmi Note 9 Pro, which has been around for a couple of months, however. Now, the recently-minted mobile-device brand, in partnership with its retail partner Flipkart, may have all but confirmed this.

This online sales giant now has a micro-site for the upcoming device, where it is being hyped with the spec of 33W charging. This is also true of the Note 9 Pro. This page also contains a video hinting at a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a Qualcomm processor: also facets of the Redmi phone.

The Twitter account @POCOForIndia has recently posted a teaser for the M2 Pro, confirming its launch date while dropping a short animation hinting at a device with quad rear cameras in a square conformation on its back above a central flash. Therefore, its SoC could be the Snapdragon 720G, while the main sensor here is most likely 48MP in resolution.

However, the cameras in this case look a little different to those of the the Note 9 Pro; the M2 Pro seems to lack the black housing that also engulfs the former's flash, thus making it look more than a bit like a high-end stove-top.

Therefore, there just may be scope for a different backing, at least, in this impending new POCO-phone. This potential for a new look may be confirmed or denied on July 7, 2020 at its debut, which takes place at 12:00 Indian Standard Time (IST, or 8:00 Central European Time (CET)).
