Poco didn’t offer a timeline back then, nor it did in yesterday’s video. But, it appears as the Poco F2 could finally launch in India very soon. The important question, however, is – Will Poco be able to build a true flagship successor to the Poco F1? Will it make a flagship chipset available at a similar price point with similar efficiency? Will it be able to match the higher expectations caused by Poco F1?
As per leaks, the chances of Poco F2 being a true flagship smartphone looks very thin. The reports online suggest that the device will be a mid-range smartphone, backed by the Snapdragon 732G chipset – the same as the Poco X3 and will also include an AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a quad-camera setup, and a modest 4,250mAh battery.
If the aforementioned specs turn out to be true, then the Poco F2 will not be seen as a true successor to the Poco F1. It won’t actually redefine the current market segmentation. Instead, it only adheres to it by offering a mid-range chipset which is not what we are yearning for. But the tables could turn if the company chooses to power the Poco F2 with a flagship MediaTek Dimensity-series chipset. The chipmaker, along with popular OEMs, is currently making an endeavor to bring affordable 5G phones to India.
Will the speculated specifications satisfy your long wait for Poco F2? What do you think should make a more positive effect on the market? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
