Poco gives a glimpse of the successor to its Pocophone F1

Poco is a brand that has established itself thanks to its Pocophone F1. Since then, of course, many other models have emerged. Here is the Pocophone F2 looming on the horizon.

Poco is a brand that is relatively unknown in France. However, the Pocophone F1 was a very interesting device, with a very good price / quality ratio. Since then, the brand has continued to market smartphones and here is a highly anticipated model on the horizon as it is the successor to the Pocophone F1, the F2 .

Poco announces an F2 half word

Poco launched several other smartphones since its very popular Pocophone F1 in 2018 but the brand created by Xiaomi has now in its boxes a true direct successor. The F2 Pro being far too expensive ($ 500) to be considered as such. Will we therefore be entitled to a real F2? It would seem so. GSMArena reports that Poco has started teasing “the F2” in a video thanking his fans for the success achieved in 2020. Besides this name, which appears at 45 seconds in the video below, there is nothing else to see. But that may ultimately be all there is to know for those who are hoping for a successor to F1.

The mystery remains unsolved for the time being

Unfortunately, however, don’t expect Poco to repeat its original strategy of offering a smartphone with near-flagship specifications at a very low price. The F2, codenamed Courbet, is rumored to use a Snapdragon 732G (mid-range) chip like that of the Poco X3. Among its most notable features, a rear camera module equipped with four sensors, a 4,250 mAh battery with reverse charging and perhaps a 120 Hz display. These features would give the F2 the advantage over many other models of entry or even mid-range but could in no case allow it to compete with the highest segments.

It’s hard to know when Poco will officially launch this F2, or at what cost. It is also difficult to know in which paid the device will be marketed. Still, it could be one of the most important smartphones of the year. Poco is an independent brand that weighs little on the market (2% in India in the third quarter of 2020) but it benefits from Xiaomi’s reputation and can count on a rapidly expanding customer base. The F2 could help Poco gain a foothold in the mobile market, at least in countries like India where Xiaomi already has a strong presence.
