Xiaomi’s upcoming affordable flagship, the Poco F2 has been spotted again. The highly anticipated successor to the Poco F1, the F2 has been in the pipeline and was confirmed by Poco General Manager C Manmohan last week.
Now the Poco F2 has been spotted on Geekbench with its key specifications listed. The Poco F2, according to Geekbench results, is slated to arrive with a Snapdragon 845 SoC.
Spotted by Nashville Chatter first, the Poco F2 is slated to run on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
The Poco F1 was launched in the domestic market with a starting price of Rs 20,999 to compete with rivals like the Asus ZenFone 5Z and the OnePlus 6T. Xiaomi later dropped the prices by Rs. 1,000.
POCO F2 t wasn’t too long ago that Xiaomi came forth with a brand new offering to challenge those that held the ‘flagship killer title.
This was in the form of a new subsidiary labeled POCO and the subsequent smartphone being called the POCO F1 POCO PHONE depending on which market you’re in).
Just recently, the Chinese brand unveiled a 6GB RAM variant of handset, so it feels a little early that we have already begun getting word of a successor in the works. Regardless, we hope that the POCO F2 can carry forward the same success as its older sibling. As of writing,
we do have eaks pointing towards a Snapdragon 845-equipped handset that runs Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 skin on top.
This pho is also listed to have 6GB of RAM. We hope the actual POCO F2 ends up being more than just a software and RAM upgrade, and that it wows us the same way its predecessor did when it came out.
In the Geekbench listing, the Poco F2 is powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC and runs Android 9.0 Pie based MIUI 10.
Even the Xiaomi Poco F1 received an update to the MIUI 10 which is based on the Android 9.0 Pie. However, since Xiaomi has not revealed anything officially yet, the Poco F2 may sport Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC,
Since the current Poco F1 gets a Snapdragon 845 SoC The Geekbench results also show that the F2 gets 6GB RAM as well.
Xiaomi may also bring i an 8GB RAM variant as well. The benchmark listing showed the Poco F2 having a single-core score of 2,321 and a multi core score of 7,564. The details on the benchmark website were uploaded today.
The Poco F2, apart from two RAM variant, may also get three native memory states 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The battery capacity could be around 4,000mAh or 4,250mAh and will support Qualcomm’s proprietary Quick Charge 3.0 The Poco F1 is currently sold in the Indian market for Rs 19,999.
