Poco, the popular budget smartphone brand under Xiaomi, has frequently launched new smartphones in the Indian market this year. The brand launched Poco C50, Poco C51, Poco C55, Poco X5, Poco X5 Pro and Poco F5 in the first half of this year. And now, Poco India head Himanshu Tandon has announced that the company has received great response from customers for the current ‘5’ series of numbers and these phones have helped make Poco even more popular in the Indian market. Now the company has started preparing to launch their new smartphone tour with the number ‘6’. Even, Himanshu Tandon mentioned about the launch of the first 6 series smartphone in his social media post.
Poco M6 Pro may come to Indian market soon
Poco India’s country head Himanshu Tandon gave a message on his tweet to move ahead with the sixth generation Poco phone. Even though it says ‘Coming Soon’, it neatly does not mention the launch date of the upcoming phone for once. However, a new Poco phone with model number 23076PC4BI was recently spotted in the IMEI database, which is expected to launch as the Poco M6 Pro 5G. Reliable tipster Casper Crazypack claims that the M6 Pro model could be launched in the Indian market soon. So it is assumed that Himanshu Tandon is probably talking about this phone.
Also, Kasper Krazypek claimed that the M6 Pro 5G will be launched as a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 12R that was launched in China last month. Which is the first phone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 processor. Let’s get to know the other specifications, features and price of Redmi Note 12R in detail.
