Xiaomi introduced its new sub-brand POCO in India back in August last year. The brand’s first phone POCO F1 became a huge hit as it was the most affordable phone with Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset. Now, the company might be planning to bring its successor POCO F2 very soon.
POCO is a performance-centric brand and its next phone will also feature the powerful specs. There are rumors that Xiaomi is planning to launch a Snapdragon 855 based phone in its homeland and it could be launched as POCO F2 in India.

The leaks suggest that the POCO 2 will come with a similar design to the Redmi Note 7 series. A leaked image of alleged Redmi Pro 2 shows that it has a gradient glass back. So, unlike the POCO F1, POCO F2 might come with a premium glass back with Gorilla Glass protection as well.
Further, the smartphone might come with full screen at the front with a high screen to body ratio. The leaked picture also shows that it does not sport a notch on top. So, it might come with a popup selfie camera design just like the Vivo or OPPO phones.

For selfies, it might have a 32MP front camera.
