In recent days, POCO has become the center of attention. The company announced its separation from Xiaomi and now they are independent brands. This is something it has used to keep talking about its next release. There are several open fronts related to POCO and its 2020 devices. Some leaks say there will be three phones, others bet on only two and there are also those who bet on a single high-end. Today we have interesting news from an Indian agency that is increasingly clarifying the company’s strategy. There is less and less doubt about the name change from Redmi K30 to Pocophone F2 or F2 Lite.
The Redmi K30 4G was presented last month in China. This device is intended for all users who do not need a high-end, but who want a performance to play and a great design. It is a premium mid-range mobile, without a ‘Pro’ version with a high-end processor.
There is no doubt, the Pocophone F2 is a Redmi K30 4G
Gizchina News of the week
The Pocophone device has appeared in the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). It has done so without revealing its commercial name, but with a fairly revealing model number. That number is M1912G7BI. It is difficult to get information from a phone by this number, but not when it is almost identical to that of another device.
The model numbers of the Redmi K30 4G are the following: M1912G7BE and M1912G7BC. Exactly, just change the last letter of the number, nothing more. In this industry this is no accident, so we can almost confirm that one of the mobiles that POCO launches in 2020 will be almost identical to the Redmi K30 4G.
Of course, now it remains to be confirmed whether it will be the Pocophone F2 or F2 Lite. We must not forget that the Redmi K30 4G has SD 730G processor, a mid-range chip. If Pocophone F2 also has this processor, users would not be happy. Recall that the Pocophone F1 was a device that triumphed for its performance thanks to the Snapdragon 845.
We may be facing a Pocophone F2 Lite, a device that has been leaked recently. We can only wait, because there is nothing clear in all this mess of model numbers.
