Almost a year after the launch of the Pocophone F1, we have heard very little about its successor so far. This has now been done with information launched by the leaker Tech Auntyji and relayed by Android Headlines. A Pocophone F2 would be well under development at Xiaomi. "All right, my darlings. I have some news for you. The Pocophone F2 exists. And it has an AMOLED screen. I can't say anything more at the moment," Tech Auntyji said.
Will Xiaomi launch a Pocophone F2?
So we don't know much about the device, but the leaker seems sure of his move and Xiaomi should launch a Pocophone F2, or whatever his trade name is in the end. However, a previous report told us that Xiaomi could already kill its Pocophone brand. This would be too much now that Redmi is no longer just a range but a brand in its own right. The Redmi K20 and Xiaomi Mi 9T series seemed to have replaced the Pocophone 2.
As a reminder, the Pocophone f1 had a promise: to offer the essentials and top-of-the-range performance thanks to the Snapdragon 845 with a smartphone that was affordable. And the bet was successful. However, Xiaomi could change its strategy by focusing on a higher-end mobile phone for the Pocophone F2 now that Redmi is in the price-quality ratio segment. The presence of an AMOLED display is a good example of this. We look forward to the Chinese group communicating on this subject in order to really understand what it is all about.
Xiaomi Pocophone 2 release date
Chinese sources Igeekphone name two dates of possible presentation of the second Pocophone. According to one version, it will be released in the first quarter of 2019, the other - by the end of next summer. The second date seems more realistic for two reasons. First, the Xiaomi Pocophone F2 may undermine the sales of the main flagship Mi9, which should appear just in winter and spring 2019. And secondly, in the first half of the year Qualcomm will obviously not dump the value of its main chipset in 2019, when it will be at the peak of smartphone manufacturers' demand.
Xiaomi Pocophone 2 price
As in the first generation, the new Pocophone should receive several versions, which will differ both in characteristics and price tags. And the basic edition of the Pocophone F1 is priced at about $300.
It is too early to talk about the cost of Xiaomi Pocophone F2, but it is unlikely that they will differ significantly from the prices of the Poco F1, but it’s also unlikely to be offered at the unchanged price. So it is expected that the price of the Pocophone F2 will be increased by $50 or so. However, it is sure that Xiaomi will keep the Pocophone F2’s price as low as possible.
