Xiaomi’s POCO has pretty much revolutionized the world with the introduction of the Pocopone F1 in 2018 featuring that year’s flagship chipset – the Snapdragon 845. After an entire year of hiatus to focus on the Redmi expansion as a sub-brand, Xiaomi decided to revive the POCO brand as a separate company this year. However, POCO’s strategies in 2020 have been somewhat underwhelming.
So far, we’ve only got a bunch of rebranded smartphones from Redmi. The first smartphone released by Poco this year was the Poco X2 which is, in fact, a rebranded Redmi K30 4G. The company moved on with the release of the POCO F2 Pro, but once again, it’s a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. The latest Poco M2 Pro is also very similar to the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, hence, it’s hard to considerate it an original device. Now the company is expected to unveil an entry-level smartphone called POCO C3. It could be the Redmi 9C, but recent reports stated that the Redmi 9C may actually hit India as Redmi 9. The original Redmi 9 is available in the country as Redmi 9 Prime.
