“A POCO phone with model number M2004J11G was spotted on EEC, and it could be the POCO F2”
POCO F2 is most definitely launching this year, but we still don’t have an exact launch date yet. This week, a mysterious POCO phone has been spotted on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website with model number M2004J11G. This is speculated to be the POCO F2, which leads us to believe that the phone could launch soon now. Ever since the former Xiaomi sub-brand POCO launched the POCO X2 (review) smartphone in India about two months back, rumours have been swirling around the launch of the POCO F2. The company has been teasing its launch and recently confirmed that the POCO F2 will not be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro.
The model number of the device happens to be M2004J11G and it is listed as a POCO device. Naming-wise the device has not been confirmed to be the Poco F2 although it is highly likely that this is what the smartphone will be called. Apart from the model number, there have been no specs or design features that have been provided for the device. Even so, it is quite possible that the device will be featured on other certification websites to provide us with a better understanding of what it will be housing inside.
If history is any indication though, we can surely expect the device to be housing the latest Snapdragon flagship silicone at a price tag that is extremely competitive. One thing we know for sure is that the POCO F2 is not going to be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro, unlike the POCO X2 which was launched in India as a rebranded Redmi K30.
To recall, the POCO F1 was the most affordable Snapdragon 845 phone back in 2019 as it launched at a disruptive starting price of Rs 20,999. But with the POCO F2 expected to pack the Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G support, the high cost of the newest Qualcomm chipset suggests the POCO F2 may launch at a higher starting price compared to the POCO F1. Apart from the phone, POCO is also working on truly wireless earbuds.
