At the end of the year 2020, POCO India seemingly teased the arrival of the POCO F2. Since then, the rumor mill has been spilling some information on the specs of the POCO F2. A recent leak claimed that it will not be a flagship phone, but an upper mid-range phone driven by the Snapdragon 732G. On Saturday, popular tipster and YouTuber Mukul Sharma carried out an AMA session with POCO India Country Director, Anuj Sharma to share some exclusive information. During the session, Anju revealed that the Snapdragon 7332G would not drive the POCO F2.
In December, two laptop batteries with model numbers R15B02W and R14B02W was certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). These batteries were reportedly listed with POCO branding. Hence, the rumor mill started speculating that the POCO brand could be venturing into the laptop market soon. However, in the starting few minutes of the AMA session, Anuj confirmed that it was indeed a POCO battery, but it was not a laptop battery.
While Anuj spoke a couple of times about the POCO F2 in the AMA session, it is yet to be confirmed whether the successor to the legendary POCO F1 will be called POCO F2 or POCO F3. He revealed that the company the Snapdragon 732G (an upper mid-range chip) will not power the F-series. This indicates that the POCO F1’s successor could be a flagship SoC.
The Snapdragon 845 SoC powered POCO F1 came with an astonishing price tag of Rs 20,999 (~$287). Talking about the pricing of the F1’s successor, Anuj revealed that it will be priced higher as it is impossible to launch it with pricing that the F1 carried. He did not 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 rebranded version of the Snapdragon 865 powered Redmi K30 Pro 5G that went official in March. Probably, the POCO F1’s successor featuring a flagship SoC could be priced between Rs 25,000 (~$341) to Rs 40,000 (~$546).
Anuj also revealed that he tasked the R&D team to work on another product that could end up as a spiritual successor to the POCO F1. It may be something, and it might not be called the F2. The POCO executive did not divulge much info on the mysterious device. Check out the video above to know what else Anuj spoke about in the AMA session.
