Poco F2 rumours have been doing the rounds of the Web since 2018. Many, together with us, started to marvel if Xiaomi had deserted this sub-brand, even because it launched its Redmi Ok20 collection in the identical worth band the place we’d have anticipated the Poco F2 to observe its predecessor. Nevertheless, Xiaomi solely lately introduced the Poco will now be an impartial firm and proper on cue, we’ve got some reside photos of what’s stated to be the Poco F2 Lite. Poco is anticipated to launch round three units underneath the F2 collection, of which the Poco F2 Lite is alleged to be certainly one of them. These telephones shall be succeeding the corporate lone Poco-branded smartphone Poco F1 that was launched again in 2018.
The leaked photographs do not reveal an excessive amount of apart from a blurry shot of the telephone, which appears loads just like the Redmi Be aware 7 Professional and a partial shot of the ‘About’ web page, revealing its title. As is the case with any leak, take this with a grain of salt.
Shortly after Xiaomi introduced that Poco shall be an impartial firm in India, Indian tech YouTube channel RevAtlas acquired an e mail from an unknown celebration, who claimed to have reside photographs of the Poco F2 Lite. That is the primary we’re listening to in regards to the existence of such a tool. The e-mail additionally hinted that there will be three fashions of the Poco F2 launching this 12 months, of which, the F2 Lite is certainly one of them. If that is true, then we are able to assume the opposite two fashions could possibly be known as the Poco F2 and Poco F2 Professional, perhaps?
Hooked up within the e mail have been three photos, claiming to be of the Poco F2 Lite. Like several leaked picture, it is shot from fairly poor angles and we solely see the entrance of the telephone. The one shot which reveals all the entrance, is blurry. Two of the three photos even have a ‘Shot on Redmi Ok20′ watermark. It is amusing how all leaked photos appear to be taken in a rush and nearly all the time, are shot underneath horrible lighting. Wanting intently on the telephone, the entrance does remind us a number of the Redmi Be aware 7 Professional (Overview). It is potential that Poco could be repurposing components from present Redmi telephones, no less than for the Lite model. The ‘About’ display states the gadget title and mannequin and ‘Poco F2 Lite’ and it appears to be working a MIUI model for Poco telephones, so presumably with fewer adverts. The half which reveals the Android model is conveniently reduce out.
And for specs, the mysterious tipster mentions within the physique of the e-mail, that the Poco F2 Lite will run on the Snapdragon 765 SoC; can have 6GB of RAM; a 5000mAh battery; and a “excessive decision very excessive” digital camera. There’s additionally a line with says “millet mannequin worth cheaper than earlier than.”
Let’s break this down. If this purported Lite mannequin truly exists, it is smart that it will use Qualcomm’s new mid-range SoCs. The Snapdragon 765 collection was introduced throughout Qualcomm’s annual Tech Summit in December, which options an built-in 5G modem. This implies, the usual Poco F2 would largely possible have the Snapdragon 865 SoC. So far as RAM goes, 6GB sounds affordable and in all chance, we may have 4GB and 8GB variations too, relying on what worth factors Poco goals at hitting. As for the excessive decision, it’s going to most definitely be a 48-megapixel sensor on the very least, giving how ubiquitous these at the moment are. The leaked picture reveals a single selfie digital camera within the notch, nevertheless it’s nonetheless unsure what number of could be on the again. As for the battery, 5,000mAh looks as if an excellent capability, if true.
The final half about it being “cheaper than earlier than” is a bit of imprecise, contemplating there wasn’t a Poco F1 Lite. However should you consider the aggressive worth of Rs. 20,999 that the Poco F1 launched at again in 2018, we may very effectively see the F2 Lite launching on this ball park. Just like the F1, it is also potential that the F2 Lite may have a polycarbonate physique. This might assist preserve prices down, with out cannibalising gross sales of Xiaomi’s Redmi Ok20 collection, which provide a premium glass and metallic design.
Just lately, an alleged Poco X2 popped up on Geekbench, with scores just like that of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G SoC. Earlier than Xiaomi made the announcement, a trademark submitting for the Poco F2 title, hinted that the model remains to be alive and kicking.
