Xiaomi POCO M2 Pro with Snapdragon 720G, 6GB RAM Surfaces on Geekbench Ahead of July 7 Launch

The 'soon to be launched' POCO M2 Pro has appeared on popular benchmarking app Geekbench


It was just hours ago on July 1, 2020, that  Xiaomi-owned POCO announced that it would launch its new mid-range smartphone — the POCO M2 Pro in India on July 7. The company made the announcement via its social media channels. In fact, we have also received an official media invite for the launch of the device.

The M2 Pro makes its mid-range intentions pretty clear thanks to confirmation that it will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. Anyway, the reason you’re reading about this handset once again is that the phone has made an appearance on the website of popular benchmarking tool Geekbench.

Take a look at the screenshot below.


As evident from the image above, the phone manages to score 554 points in the single-core test and 1757 points in the multi-core test. You can also see that the variant used for benchmarking gets 6GB of RAM and that it runs Android 10. The motherboard used has the codename ‘Gram.’

When launched, the POCO M2 Pro will become the second handset to be launched by POCO here in India this year. We already know that the phone features a quad camera setup at the rear and that the primary camera used a 48MP sensor. Flipkart already has a microsite ready for the POCO M2 Pro, indicating that the device will be exclusively available there. As of now, we have precious little information pertaining to the rest of the specifications of the device. In case you are interested in knowing first hand what the POCO M2 Pro will look like, it would be a good idea to tune to POCO India’s social media handles on July 7. That being said, there is chatter about the likelihood of the POCO M2 Pro being a tweaked version of the popular Redmi Note 7 Pro. It remains to be seen if that really is the case.
