At the end of 2020, POCO India seemed to tease the arrival of POCO F2. Since then, the rumor mill has been spreading some information about the specifications of POCO F2. A recent leak claimed that it will not be a flagship phone, but a mid-to-high-end phone powered by Snapdragon 732G.
On Saturday, popular tipster and YouTuber Mukul Sharma had an AMA meeting with POCO India Regional Director Anuj Sharma to share some exclusive information. During the meeting, Anju revealed that Snapdragon 7332G will not power POCO F2.
In December, two laptop batteries with models R15B02W and R14B02W passed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification. According to reports, these batteries were listed under the POCO brand.
Rumours began to spread that the POCO brand may soon enter the notebook computer market. However, in the first few minutes of the AMA meeting, Anuj confirmed that it was indeed a POCO battery, but not a laptop battery.
While Anuj spoke of POCO F2 several times in the AMA session, he didn’t mention whether the successor to the legendary POCO F1 will be called POCO F2 or POCO F3.
He revealed that the Snapdragon 732G company (a high-end chip) will not be powering the F-series. This means the flagship SoC could be the successor to the POCO F1.
The POCO F1 powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC came at an astonishing Rs 20,999 (~ $ 287). Speaking of prices for the F1 successor, Anuj revealed that it will be priced higher as it is impossible to run it at the price that F1 was carrying. He didn’t mention the specific price range of the POCO F2.
The POCO F2 Pro debuted in August 2020, with a starting price of 599 Euros (~$723; ~Rs 52,920). It was a renamed version of Redmi K30 Pro 5G powered by Snapdragon 865, which was officially launched in March.
The successor to POCO F1 may have a flagship SoC, and the price may be between 25,000 rupees (~$341) and 40,000 rupees (~$546).
Anuj also revealed that he had commissioned a research and development team to work on another product that could become the spiritual successor to POCO F1.
