Poco F1, the first launch of Xiaomi’s new sub-brand Poco, had made its way into the tech market with a competitive price back in 2018. Now, rumors about the next Poco phone, namely the Poco F2 has made the rounds of the internet ever since last year. However, remember that these are speculations, and until the official reveals of the device, they will remain as rumors.
As said by an insider, the company behind Xiaomi Poco F2 will get rid of the IR Face Scanner in the new device to make the notch size smaller because the competition is now presenting users with a dewdrop notch.
Xiaomi Poco F2 Specs, Price, And Release Date
Xiaomi Poco F2 technical specs
The latest leaks and rumors say that the pricing of the Xiaomi Poco F2 will affect the sales of OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro as it starts from about $370 and goes up to approximately $450 for the max model. There were also leaks of images of the Real Images of the Retail Box Packaging of Poco F2 just a few days ago.
As the rumors have already begun to bubble out some clues, let’s take a look at the upcoming Poco F2 specs and features.
The smartphone will come with a powerful processor, namely Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset. Xiaomi will reportedly release a 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage model, an 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and an 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage space version. It has been rumored that the tech company will also release a 10GB of RAM model to compete more aggressively with its rivals, Huawei, Honor, and OnePlus.
Xiaomi’s upcoming device will have a 6.3-inch FHD+ notch display, a pop-up selfie camera, a triple camera array on the back and some subtle gradient finish as well.
Poco F2 cameras
The smartphone will feature a triple camera array on the front, and some probable camera settings would be a telephoto sensor and a regular RGB, a wide-angle lens and a telephoto sensor, a regular RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor, or a regular RGB and a higher megapixel sensor.
As said in a leak, the Poco F2 will come with a triple camera array of a 49-megapixel lens, 8-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 13-megapixel wide-angle sensor. These upgrades will give the phone a significant enhancement.
Because AI technology is nowadays almost omnipresent in the new devices, expect some impressive camera features such as object detection, improvement in the AR incorporated in the camera, and so on. The upcoming smartphone could outdo other flagships by incorporating a better neural engine based on AI. Xiaomi’s edge detection algorithm is among the best currently present in the tech market.
Software and battery
The device’s software is a moderated version of MIUI, which contains numerous smart features for the app drawer imported. This category might also get some AI integrated within the UI to keep the device as smooth as when bought. AI could also make the app loading times faster.
The Xiaomi Poco F1 will get updates quicker and faster than before, and the Xiaomi Poco F2 is still to be seen as it operates with the moderated version of MIUI and comes with a regular Android. In other words, the updates will come at a faster pace but not as fast as Pixel or Android One-type quick.
The Xiaomi Poco F2 might come with the same battery as on Poco F1 because Xiaomi purchases large stocks of 4000mAh batteries each year. The device could have some proprietary or the company’s renown fast charging system.
Xiaomi Poco F2 price and release date
The Poco F1’s price will be slightly higher than that of its predecessor, as it should start somewhere at $380 to $450 for the first models, and go up to $470 or more for the 10GB of RAM version.
The Xiaomi Poco F2 will be released in China on May the 28th 2019, and it is anticipated to launch worldwide after this date. Even if the release date has not been officially announced, we can expect the device to be rolled out in the first week of June 2019.
