Last year on the 22nd of August, Xiaomi introduced their sub-brand POCO with the first POCO branded smartphone. Namely, the Pocophone F1, which, while sporting flagship-grade hardware and performance, didn’t burn a hole in your pocket. It touted the Snapdragon 845 SoC at a price point that was unheard of before. Now, although POCO didn’t launch any smartphones in 2019, its parent brand Xiaomi did bring another sub-brand flagship, i.e., Redmi K20 Pro. But, that might be about to change with the possibility of POCO debuting its POCOphone F2 in the coming year. Poco F2 is one of the most awaited phones.

Jai Mani’s resignation was seen as further proof of Xiaomi’s decision to scrap Poco in favor of existing line-ups. Furthermore, In July, an IDC analyst added more fuel to the fire by reporting that Xiaomi could actually shut down Poco for good.
