Xiaomi makes huge POCO-related announcement: No, it's not about Poco F2

While rumors of Poco F2 are gaining momentum, Xiaomi has dropped important news for the Indian smartphone market.

POCO becomes an independent brand.

China Says Economic Growth Fell to Lowest in 30 Years
Property investment growth hit a two-year low in December even as it grew at a solid 9.9 percent pace in 2019. Its economy has been undergoing a painful shift away from heavy industry and commodities.

Now, the Chinese smartphone giant has taken a bold step to spin off POCO as an independent brand in India just like it did with Redmi in January a year ago. "Its first smartphone, POCO F1, was incredibly successful and remains an extremely popular phone till date", a statement from the smartphone maker read.

Just like the Poco F1 which was launched back in 2018 with Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset, POCO F2 could also sport a flagship chipset. Several months ago, a top POCO executive and former Googler Jai Mani left the company followed by some other founding and core members of the team. While the company kept quiet about the future of the Poco brand, many were speculating that the company would shut down the Poco project entirely. We still don't have any clarity on what all of this entails but fans and enthusiasts who've been religiously asking for a Poco F2 from Xiaomi for a while now, will now have to drop in their requests elsewhere. The phone did well in the market but Poco remained silent in 2019 and didn't launch a single phone after the debut. POCO uses Xiaomi's services like logistics, support etc. POCO has its own product strategy. We believe that it is time to run POCO independently now. Xiaomi needed POCO because its Mi and Redmi smartphone brands are known for their mid-range and low-tier smartphones. So we can just expect the new phone from Poco soon.

Another phone with the name POCO X2 has been listed on Geekbench recently.

Elsewhere on a YouTube Channel, Jain says that Xiaomi took "some time" to understand how to go forward with POCO which is why it kept mum on the whole "when is POCO F2 coming" bandwagon. The smartphone has 8GB RAM and Android 10 OS.
