POCO Will Launch A New Smartphone On 25 December
Xiaomi launched the Poco F1 smartphone earlier this year in India which, was later followed by a lot of other markets. The smartphone shook the world due to its stellar features and killer pricing. It is the world’s first sub $ 300 smartphone to feature the Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 SoC. In comparison, other phones that feature the Snapdragon 845 chipset cost 2 – 3x the price of the Poco F1. As of now, the smartphone has received both positive and negative reviews. But, there is not much to complain because of its price. The company has posted a tweet which talks of a NewPOCO smartphone.
The Poco F2?
The #NewPOCO is getting us all excited!

The tweet was posted on the company’s official Twitter account, therefore the piece of information is trustworthy. It indicates that POCO will soon launch a new smartphone in India. However, the tweet does not provide any information about which device the company will launch. Allegedly it could be the POCO F2 or even a revised variant of the currently available POCO F1.
Yes! They are probably launching a new Gradient colour at the same price as normal variants and Kevlar (Armoured) Edition for the other lower variants at 1K more. :) https://t.co/BaTecSvgyj
