Xiaomi’s about to launch the Poco F2. As prices of smartphones continue to push prices over the $1000 price tag, a recent leak has revealed that the Poco F2 could be debuting on May 12th, with the keynote being help in Madrid, Spain.
The leaks comes in from Sudhanshu, who also seems to be assuring that the Poco F2 might be launching in the European market. One thing that’s odd is that there are no leaks regarding the Indian launch of the phone, despite the Indian market being the prime focus for the Xiaomi’s group of sub-brands.
With the Poco F1 being a major bombshell of a device simply because of its price tag, we wonder how much the Poco F2 might retail for. Early leaks, courtesy of the folks over at 91Mobiles, suggest that the Poco F2 might retail for EUR 570 (US $ 625) in Europe, with a slightly lower price for the Indian market.
Considering how important the Indian market is for the flagship killer sub-brand, it’s going to be a bummer if Poco actually launches the phone for anything above $500.
For some recap, the Poco F2 is expected to boast flagship-level internals, like the Snapdragon 865 SoC, 6/8GB of RAM, 4000mAh+ battery, and a whole lot more.
Over the past week, folks from Poco themselves have also confirmed that the Poco F2 would not be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. They also had no words regarding whether the Poco F2 would feature a high-refresh rate display. Which if it doesn’t, looks like a complete bummer if it doesn’t come with one.
The phone would definitely be making its way to the Indian market regardless, but if the device doesn’t seem to meet the expectations of a lot of its original buyers, the Poco F2 would definitely not make its way to the USA, even with imports.
