Xiaomi Pocophone F2 will surely come into being, because Poco F1, as for the debut of the new brand, has really achieved considerable success. Meanwhile, a smartphone appeared in the Geekbench performance test page. Based on the name, this may be the successor of the low-priced high-end Pocophone F1 that Xiaomi is selling. The results on Geekbench reveal chips, RAM and the operating system F2 is equipped with.
Accordingly, the Pocophone F2 uses the Snapdragon 845 chip and has 6GB of RAM similar to F1. The device runs the latest Android 9 Pie operating system. The performance test results showed that the Pocophone F2 achieved 2321 single-core points and 7564 multi-core points.
Someone could just edit the build. prop file. That’s why Geekbench recognizes this phone under that name. Rather, let’s expect the Pocophone F2 to get the Snapdragon 855 processor. It’s hard to believe that Xiaomi will re-focus on SoC for flagships this year.
Since there are chips and RAM similar to F1, it is likely that the Pocophone F2 will be improved in other aspects such as the screen, camera, and battery. The Pocophone F1 has a large screen defect to set the 20MP front camera and an infrared sensor for face detection. Maybe, F2 will have a screen with a smaller part. Due to the failure of high-end smartphones in the market outside China, Xiaomi created the Pocophone brand to compensate. With a plastic case, the Pocophone F1 is rated as the cheapest Snapdragon 845 smartphone in the market.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 was quite successful as a debutant. Recently, Xiaomi boasted that there are 700K users on the phone in the world. Personally, however, I would not expect the premiere of the Pocophone F2 model in the first half of 2019. Rather, the phone will make its debut later.
