POCO F2 Name Trademarked By Xiaomi In China; Might Launch Soon

We might finally see the Poco F2 in the near future as Xiaomi has just trademarked the name Poco F2 with China Trademark Office in China.

Xiaomi introduced its sub-brand Pocophone back in 2018 and only added one offering in the series called Poco F1. Since then, the brand has been silent about it, making fans wonder whether the Poco F2 would ever come out. But it seems like the Chinese company is planning to revive the Pocophone brand as it has filed for a trademark application for the Poco F2 name with CTO (China Trademark Office). The trademark with identification number 428005 was spotted by a Twitter user @the_tech_guy. From the trademark, it appears that Xiaomi will likely introduce a new smartphone under the Poco brand in the near future.

That being said, the trademark doesn’t give any other information regarding this Poco F2 such as availability, price, specs, or anything. For now, Xiaomi has been very secretive about the handset as there haven’t been any leak about the alleged Poco F2. The Poco F1 was a massive success as it is very well-known not only in India but also in many other markets. The main reason for the success is its competitive price for flagship-level specs and features. This news seems reliable since POCO global head teased the release of the Poco F2 to take place in 2020.

Interestingly, its predecessor Poco F1 was seen in a trademark filed two months ahead of its launch in India. Following that timeline, the Poco F2 release date in India might be in the first half of this year considering the filing date of the trademark is 4 December 2018.

The Poco F1 was launched in 2018 with a Snapdragon 845 SoC, which was the most powerful chipset at that time. The chipset is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage, which were also mostly only available in flagships. In terms of software, it originally came with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box but is now upgradable to Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 11.

The Poco F1 price in India started at Rs. 20,999 for the base variant and went all the way to Rs. 28,999 for the top-end model.
