A new Xiaomi smartphone has just been certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The phone is thought to be the much-anticipated POCO F2 flagship. The phone clears EEC with model number M2004J11G which is similar to the model numbers of some Xiaomi models that have previously been certified by the EEC. For comparison, the Poco F1 had the model number M1805E10A; the Redmi K20 Pro came with the model number M1903F11C while the Redmi K30 Pro had the model number M2001J11C.
The certified phone was listed on March 31 and is indicated to be a Xiaomi phone under the Poco brand, which is now an independent brand. Interestingly, the phone is listed as a Poco brand and not Pocophone. Recall that the first model was launched as Pocophone F1 in the global market. The company may have finally decided to stick with a shorter Poco branding.
The Poco F2 was expected to have launched in 2019 after the F1 was introduced with a surprise flagship lineup, but that didn’t happen. Just when we thought the brand was going to start the F2, the Poco X2 was unveiled as a rebranded Redmi K30. Xiaomi has already confirmed the Redmi K30 Pro won’t be launched as the Poco F2. Thus, the F2 will come with a design that is yet to leak, perhaps.
For now, we don’t have any other detail on the specifications or design of the F2, but we expect more information to emerge soon.
As you can see in the EEC listing, M2004J11G is listed as a POCO branded smartphone. Although we don’t have any information regarding the retail name of this smartphone, we are speculating it to be the allegedly upcoming POCO F2 since there is no other forthcoming POCO smartphone that we know of. And unfortunately, the EEC listing doesn’t reveal anything apart from the POCO branding and the model number at the moment.
Since this POCO device has now made its appearance on EEC, it could soon be certified through other certification agencies, leaving behind a trail of additional details regarding its specifications. Until then, stay tuned on MySmartPrice to be the first to know the latest smartphone leaks in the industry. Also, what do you think about POCO F2? What are your expectations from the smartphone? Would you buy the POCO F2 if it offers the same level of VFM factor as its predecessor? Do ensure to let us know in the comments section provided below.
At the moment, there aren’t many details regarding this upcoming handset. However, reputable tipster Mukul Sharma believed that this device could actually be the POCO F2.
As we already knew yesterday, POCO India General Manager C Manmohan had confirmed that the POCO F2 would not be arriving as a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. Therefore, the POCO F2 is likely to be a flagship phone which is designed and developed by POCO’s in-house team.
Back in 2018, the POCO F1 was announced as the cheapest Snapdragon 845-fueled smartphone. This time around, it is rumoured that the POCO F2 could once again be the cheapest Snapdragon 865 flagship in the market.
However, Manmohan does hint that the POCO’s flagship phones are unlikely to cost around Rs. 20,000 ($265).
