News Xiaomi Pocophone F2: Will it come? – All current info & leaks
The Pocophone F1 was an extremely important smartphone for Xiaomi in 2018. The price-performance killer was a real flagship for just about $250, and it also drew the attention of many people to Xiaomi for the first time. A successor was denied for a long time, but now there are first indications for the Pocophone F2. Is it still coming?
What we know so far
We do not “know” anything yet, Xiaomi is keeping a low profile. There were already first leaks at the beginning of the year, but they more or less came true in the Xiaomi Mi 9T and Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (Redmi K20 (Pro)). For us, the 9T was also considered a kind of Poco F2, because like the first generation, it had the jack connector and a larger battery compared to the flagship (Xiaomi Mi 8). So we assumed that the Poco F2 wouldn’t be coming anymore. But now a new Xiaomi smartphone with the model number M1912G7BE/M1912G7BC has been certified by the Chinese certification authority CCC.
Since the certification for the 5G network has been obtained, it cannot actually be the Redmi K30 for which 5G support has been officially confirmed. The new certification also confirms that the smartphone supports 27W Quick Charge 4+. This would also fit to the possible Pocophone F2, because this is a flagship feature but also no brand new quick charge like with the new Mi Charge Turbo technology.
In addition, the well-known case manufacturer Spigen probably accidentally leaked a case for the Pocophone F2. However, the render image used on the website is an image of the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, which indicates that the Pocophone F2 could adopt this design. This would fit in so far as the Pocophone F1 basically took over the design of the flagship of that time, the Xiaomi Mi 8. Accordingly, the Pocophone F2 could be equipped with a pop-up camera (retractable front camera) and a triple cam on the back.
Xiaomi has not yet made a statement, so so far everything remains pure speculation. With Xiaomi’s short release rhythm, it’s unusual that the Pocophone F1 was released over a year ago. However, the phone was so popular that it would also be illogical not to bring a successor. In my opinion, it could be a reworked version of the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, including Snapdragon 855+ CPU, improved camera and possibly an even bigger battery. But there might be an LC display and a plastic back. But the price should be unbeatable again.
