Xiaomi is a popular Chinese brand that sells their phones primarily in emerging markets like China, India and Brazil among select countries. While they are yet to make a big dent in US, UK and Europe, they have a major share in the consumer market with not only their flagship quality phones like Pocophone 2 but also a range of other gadgets.
Xiaomi even sells bags and headphones giving a tough competition for big players like LG and Samsung. Pocophone 2 is a pathbreaking launch because at close to $350, the phone offered the best of everything an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device could provide disrupting the market in many ways.
The ripple effect created by Xiaomi was felt globally that it convinced Google to come up with the Pixel 3a that even included a headphone jack. New trademark applications done by Xiaomi confirmed that they are indeed working on the next edition of the flagship phone titled the Pocophone 2. It is delightful news for people who are looking forward to not spend thousand dollars on a phone that they can’t use after two years but enjoy all the amazing features it has to offer.
In the document, Xiaomi calls it the Poco F2 which obviously refers to the second generation version of the most successful phone. The trademark also further adds that the launch date is probably close by and could even happen at the upcoming Mobile World Congress even scheduled to take place in February.
India will receive the phone as Poco F2 while a global launch will be done with the name Pocophone F2. Ever since these budget phones that offer flagship quality got launched, there has been huge demand for such models in US, UK and Europe. They may soon venture into these markets to directly compete with Google and Samsung, even Apple SE 2 when it gets announced in 2020.
