  • Beating yourself at price - Pocophone X2 + F2 found






    Performance wise it seems to sit between the Snapdragon 845 and the 730G, hinting it probably won't be using the 865, perhaps the 730G or 765G?

    Xiaomi sub-brand POCO isn’t done yet. The brand reportedly has been in the news for working on a new smartphone that will succeed the POCO F1 smartphone from 2018. POCO’s global head late last month teased the brand isn’t done yet. Now, an unannounced smartphone by the name POCO X2 has surfaced on Geekbench. The benchmarking platform reveals the upcoming POCO phone will run Android 10 OS to take care of its software side of things. The POCO X2 is said to have 1.80GHz octa-core chipset codenamed as “phoenixin,” paired with 8GB of RAM under the hood. While the chipset details are unknown at the moment, we can tell it helps the phone score 547 points in the single-core test and 1,767 points in the multi-core test.




     




    Since it’s the very first time the POCO X2 is hitting headlines, that’s all we know so far. Interestingly, the POCO X2 Geekbench scores are similar to the Redmi K30’s, which was launched in China last month. Will it be a rebranded version Redmi K30 smartphone? We’ll have to wait and watch.






    Additionally, mentions of a F2 model is also apparent.

    According to the documents, Xiaomi has filed a trademark for a phone named POCO F2 - a clear indication that the successor is coming. And a trademark was presented right before the launch of the original POCO, so the announcement is probably nearing.








    Of course, the global name of the phone will probably be Pocophone F2 except for India, where it's going to be called POCO F2, judging by the previous release. It looks like the Redmi K20 Pro isn't the spiritual successor of the Pocophone F1 as the latter would be getting a proper heritor.

    Thoughts: Unless they can push the price of a mid-range phone even cheaper, nothing on the specs really stands out. The F2 better be a flagship or else nobody is going to buy it.
