There is no doubt that Xiaomi’s POCO F1 had every budget smartphone owner upgrade to a flagship smartphone in 2018. And there is no doubt either that the POCO wouldn’t keep that going forward in 2019. To keep things interesting, POCO F2 may see a refreshed overall design.
POCO F2: A significant design change might be happening
Thanks to a popular leaks visualiser, Ben Jeskin, we now know what POCO F2 might end up looking. The POCOphone upgrade could introduce a much smaller notch, which could be higher screen real-estate. With smartphones moving to punch-hole display design, it is the least expected change in terms of the display design.
It’s not exactly a water drop notch design, but it does look better than the rectangular notch on the POCO F1. This notch design of the F2 is a clear inspiration taken from the Xiaomi’s recent gaming phone released in China, which goes by the moniker Mi Play.
Taking that inspiration forward, the visualiser has showcased that the POCO F2, could also introduce a dual rear camera setup placement on the left corner of the device while keeping the fingerprint sensor on the centre.
At this point, it is too early to tell how exactly the alleged POCO F2 would look like. But for now, this is as closest as we get to visualise how the new POCOphone would look. Xiaomi may have some significant changes in store for the design, but according to the Geekbench listing, the internals may not change much.
