POCO Is Launching A Phone Next Month But It’s Not POCO F2


Pocophone fans might have to wait a little longer for POCO F2.

Today, Poco India General Manager C Manmohan has confirmed that the company will launch a new smartphone in February, however, it won’t be the much anticipated POCO F2.

Manmohan revealed the POCO flagship lineup in an interview with YouTuber Tecno Ruhez. However, he refrained from disclosing more details about the POCO F2 or unknown POCO phone coming next month.

If not POCO F2, could it be POCO X2?

Over the last few days, leaks have been running around of a Xiaomi phone named “POCO X2.” At first, there was a Geekbench listing of a device with the same name. Yesterday, GSMArena reported an easter egg in a recent POCO teaser where they found the name “POCO X2”.

There are also rumors that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi K30 in India as POCO X2. A very recent leak is from an XDA Developer member who spotted the name “POCO X2” in the Redmi K30 of his Polish friend.

A quick brush up — the Redmi K30 4G model features a Snapdragon 730G SoC, a 6.67″ 120Hz display, and a 64MP camera on the back.

Wait? What about POCO F2 Lite

Apparently, there is another rumored device from POCO known as POCO F2 Lite. As the name suggests, the device will certainly be a lower-end model in the POCO lineup.

Last week, a known YouTuber received an anonymous email that claimed two big things.

First, POCO will launch three phones this year. Today, Manmohan also hinted about more than one phone, however, no one knows the exact number of phones in the lineup.

The second claim was that POCO F2 Lite will feature Snapdragon 756G. The chipset is present in the Redmi K30 5G model, which makes it hard to believe that it will come in a “Lite” model.

Nevertheless, if we go by the word of POCO India GM, all will be known about the POCO lineup real soon.
