From the last couple of months, we are seeing several leaks about the POCOPHONE. Today, the company has teased the POCOPHONE sub-brand for the global markets. However, this new sub-brand might be just called as POCO in India. As of now, there isn’t much information available about the POCOPHONE or POCO. As seen in leaks, the first smartphone under this new sub-brand will be called POCOPHONE F1.
We expect the company to sell only the premium smartphones under the POCO or POCOPHONE series. While the company is selling the Mi MIX 2S smartphone outside of China, the flagship Mi 8 is only limited to the Chinese market. From the leaked videos, the front of the POCOPHONE F1 also looks similar to the Mi 8. While the Mi 8 came with glass back body, the POCOPHONE will be coming metal unibody design.
Good luck Jai, looking forward to the Gaming 🙂
