Poco has launched many devices which are rebranded versions of Redmi smartphones in the past. Xiaomi and Poco separated earlier this year but their partnership still continues. Looking at the TUV Rheinland Certification, the Redmi 9A which was launched a few days back in Malaysia might be launched in different countries under the Poco brand. In the website of Rheinland Certification, a number of Redmi devices with model numbers M20063C were spotted. The interesting thing is that the model number M20063CLC is associated with Redmi 9A. So at the moment, it is being speculated that the other model numbers are different variants of the Redmi 9A.
‘Poco’ Spotted Amongst the Model Numbers
While there are a handful of model numbers mentioned on the website for an upcoming smartphone from Xiaomi, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be of Poco right? Yes, but not when ‘Poco’ is also mentioned in the listing. That’s right, one of the model numbers for an upcoming smartphone, M2006C3MI is mentioned with ‘Poco’ in front of it.
It won’t be a surprise to anybody following the smartphone market though. To recall, the Redmi K30 Pro was launched as Poco F2 Pro in Europe and the Redmi K30 was introduce in India as Poco X2. The upcoming Poco M2 Pro is also expected to be a variant of Redmi Note 9 Pro according to some specification leaks. That said, there is no confirmation about the same. This is just a speculation based on the listing on Rheinland Certification.
