So Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO announced their very first phone called the “POCO F1” in August 2018. The POCO F1 was a budget-centric flagship device selling for a starting price of Rs. 20,999 in India. The POCO F1 offered the most high-end processor at a price as low as 20k INR which just swept the competitions like OnePus and Zenfone 5Z away. In this article, we’re going to discuss about the POCO F2 expected price, specifications and launch date in India

The POCO F1 was probably the most value for money device at its time. It has to offer many great things like flagship-level performance, great cameras for great photos, great battery life, great display except only one thing which was the build quality. The POCO F1 was built with polycarbonate material which is similar to plastic. And this does not mean its bad. It was definitely not as premium as phones having a glossy back design but considering the price that it comes at, it’s all great!
POCO F2 Specifications
There are no such firm updates regarding the specs of the upcoming POCO F2. Although you can estimate the specs of this device. The POCO F1 was a great value for money having the Snapdragon 845. In POCO F2 we will probably get to see the next flagship processor that’s the Snapdragon 855.
The battery on the POCO F1 was a nice and huge 4,000 mah. If not more then we also can’t accept a lower battery capacity than the previous 4,000 mah.
The cameras were really great and impressive on the previous POCO F1. The images were well detailed and sharp. The low light pictures were great too. All this because the POCO F1 featured a really great set of cameras on both front and back.
This is a picture take from GSMARENA. As you can see in the above image, the images are very well detailed and share at the same time. This shot was taken from the primary camera on the POCO F1 which is a 12MP f/1.9 lens. And we are not doing much if expect improvements in the image quality or you can say overall camera performance. The main camera improvement we need in the POCO F2 is OIS. The POCO F1 did not have OIS but it did have EIS which is not hardware but a software-based mechanism. With the presence of OIS, the POCO F2 will be able to take much better shots in low light scenarios.
Another improvement we can expect in the POCO F2 will be the display. The display on the POCO F1 was FHD+ IPS panel which performed really well and was a crisp, sharp display. But it would be much better if it has an AMOLED panel. So this is the improvement we would expect in the upcoming POCO F2.
The design of the POCO F1 was honestly not that good. Even the premium Kevlar edition which sported a carbon-fibre build was not as good as glass build which in return made it super durable and anti-scratch phone. So I’m really confused what actually will people like, is it the carbon-fibre based durable phone or a glass sandwich design based fragile phone? let us know in the comments below.
below is the summary of the expected specs of the POCO F2:
|Display||6.18 inch AMOLED|
|Camera||Rear: 12+5 MP
Front: 20 MP
|Pricing (base)||21,999 INR|
POCO F2 Price & Launch Date in India
Talking about the price of the POCO F2, we can expect the pricing to be anywhere from 21,000 to 23,000 INR. If the price increases drastically then it would really shock the consumers as consumers expect a flagship level phone at a mid-range price segment from POCO brand. If POCO remembers the amazing response on the POCO F1 then they would definitely not increase the price by a huge margin for the POCO F2.
Talking about the availability and launch date of the POCO F2 in India, the POCO F2 should be launched at the same time of the year again that will be around August in as they did with their first gen device POCO f1. So we will most probably see the POCO F2 launched in August 2019.
