Poco’s decision to operate as an independent brand is causing a wave in the Indian smartphone industry. Speculation about the Poco brand’s marketing strategy, particularly its product lineup, is intensified. Poco India General Manager C Manmohan has now revealed that the company will launch its first phone in February after Xiaomi split to operate as an independent entity. In addition, the Poco executive said in an interview that the Poco F2 will not be the first phone from the brand, but it will be official soon. And if the rumors are true, the Poco phone, which comes for the first time next month, can be called the Poco X2.
According to a tweet shared by Poco India, the general manager of Poco India told PTI that the first Poco phone after the brand independence move will be launched in India next month. The Poco executive has not revealed the name of the upcoming phone, but the company has given a secret hint that the Poco X2 will be the name of its next offering. Earlier this month, an undeclared phone accused of being a Poco X2 was packed on Geekbench 8GB RAM and running Android 10.0. Rumors suggest that the Poco X2 may be a rebranded version of the 4G version of the Redmi 30S that recently became official in China.
In a separate interview, Manmohan revealed that the Poco F2 will not be the first phone to come out of the refreshed independent Poco brand. Instead, the company will launch an entirely new phone, and there is further speculation that the device is being teased Poco X2. However, the Poco India executive clarified that the Poco F2 is real and will be launched soon.
