Freshly Patented Xiaomi Smartphone Could Be The Poco F2
In the year 2018, Xiaomi launched the flagship-grade Poco F1 which due to its value for money was well-received across the globe. Six months after its launch, reports via unofficial started surfacing that claimed the company will launch its successor which clearly has not yet happened.
On the 6th of August, Xiaomi was granted patent for an under development smartphone whose design seems familiar. The rear of the device houses a vertically aligned camera setup and a fingerprint sensor which is reminiscent of the Poco F1.
Moreover, the placement of USB Type C port, IR blaster and control buttons and SIM card slot on this device is heterogenous to that of the Poco F1.
Besides the handset in the patent has triple cameras rather than dual cameras. Due to the similar layout or ports, buttons, sensors and camera module, we believe this could indeed be the long-awaited Xiaomi Poco F2.
Talking about the front of the smartphone, it has an elegant looking front fascia. Unlike the original handset that has a wide notch up top, the alleged Poco F2 has a punch hole camera which helps to maximise the screen-to-body ratio.
However, the patent reveals three different arrangements for the placement of the punch hole camera. Therefore, the company is yet to reach a decision as in which design will be implemented in the commercially available device.
Unfortunately, the source does not reveal any specifications of the smartphone. Nonetheless, based on our assumptions, the Poco F2 will have the following features:
- Screen: 6.4 Inch, LCD Display, Full HD Resolution
- Rear Camera: 48 MP + 8 MP + 13 MP
- Front Camera: 20 MP
- Battery: 4,000 mAh, 27 W
- Chipset: Snapdragon 855
- CPU: Octa Core
- GPU: Adreno 640
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, USB Type C Port, NFC, GPS
- Notable Features: Rear Mounted Fingerprint Sensor, Punch Hole Camera
Conclusively, based on our assumptions, this device has a high possibility of being the Poco F2. Though we will have to wait patiently until Xiaomi acknowledges the patent or speaks publically about the handset.
