The rumor mill is still churning to the direction of the upcoming Pocophone F2, and it does so for a good reason. The Xiaomi sub-brand is poised to surpass the Pocophone F1 as an affordable alternative yet gives users flagship experience in terms of performance and hardware.

The success of the brand is turning out to be going steady, and by the looks of it, the Pocophone F2 is well on its way to gain a ton of acclaims.

The triumph of the Pocophone F1 came as a result of the company's decision to outfit the Smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip. This made the Pocophone F1 the cheapest device with the aforementioned chip underneath.

The Pocophone F2 is no exception when it comes to this fact: it will sport the latest Snapdragon 855 SoC and will again be the most affordable phone in India with Qualcomm's latest processor.

Another common theme leakers are saying on a consistent basis is a pop-up front facing camera. According to one source, the Pocophone F2 will use the same 32megapixel front-facing snapper design like the Vivo V15 Pro. By this, the Pocophone F2 won't have a notch or a water-drop cutout in front. Instead, the Smartphone will have an all-screen display with a fingerprint sensor underneath.

Considering this, the Pocophone F2 will have little to no bezels. This will make the device's 6.39inch Full HD+ real estate of the next-generation Pocophone neat, beautiful and should give users the best viewing experience for its price. Also worth noting is the Pocophone F2's main camera. Rumor has it that it will sport a Sony IMX363 sensor akin to Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Xiaomi can also opt to add two more cameras with an ultra-wide sensor and telephoto.

Additionally, the Pocophone F2 is said to come in with at least 6GB RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. Following the rumor trail, on the other hand, will lead us to speculate a Smartphone with 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard memory. There could also be other versions of the Pocophone F2 just like its predecessor.

The Pocophone F2 is said to be a big upgrade "in terms of both design and specs" when compared to the first version. The previous source also suggested that the Pocophone F2 will be sold in India under the aforementioned name and will be launched in China by June. There is no official news about the price, but it will most likely be retailed with the same sticker price as the Pocophone F2.
