Highlights: Xiaomi POCO F2.
- Xiaomi Poco F2 appeared on GeekBench.
- The leaked screen guard shows phone houses a waterdrop notch.
- Smartphone spotted to be powered by SD 845.
Xiaomi, the Chinese Manufacturer, launched a smartphone called Poco F1 under its sub-brand POCO last year. The smartphone was one of the most appealing phones of 2018 as it offered flagship specifications under the mid-range price point. While the rumors for Poco F2 are surfacing online for a long time, we haven’t seen any official confirmation or teaser about the existence of the smartphone.
Today, a new photo of the protective film (Screen guard) for Xiaomi POCO F2 leaked which suggests that phone will house a Waterdrop style Notch on the top of the display. However, the bezels on display appear to be minimal. You can check out the leaked screen guard photo of Xiaomi POCO F2 below:
In addition to the leaked photo of front protective glass, the GeekBench scores for the phone were also leaked. As per the information the phone is equipped with Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone still runs of Android 8.1 Oreo, which is outdated. POCO F2 scores 2473 point on single-core and 8633 points on Multicore.
Earlier, 91mobiles reported that IDC analysts said that Xiaomi might plan to stop its smartphone brand POCO, it seems that the analyst analysis is wrong.
A photo was also leaked in December last year revealing the GeekBench scores of Xiaomi POCO F2. As you can see in the image below, the single-core score of the Poco F2 is 2321, and the multi-core score is 7564. However, the recently leaked image shows an increase in the points of both the multiple and single cores.
Most of the leaked specifications and design features seem to be outdated in 2019 for the Xiaomi POCO F2. Recently the Redmi K20 Pro was launched that offers so much from SD 855 to an in-display fingerprint scanner. It features Pop-up selfie camera, full-screen display without any Notch and a lot more. The price of the smartphone is similar to the Pocophone F1, So why would anyone want to purchase POCO F2 with such outdated specifications.
The leaked design and specifications of the phone don’t seem legit, but it confirmed that Xiamoi is cooking something inside. However, there are no official wordings from Xiaomi, so take this information with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for further updates.
