NEW DELHI: Xiaomi’s Poco F2 looks set to become a reality soon as the handset maker has reportedly applied for a trademark for the same. According to the documents shared by a tipster, Xiaomi has filed a trademark for a phone named Poco F2 — a clear indication that the successor to the popular Poco F1 smartphone is in the works.
And a trademark was presented right before the launch of the original Poco, so the Poco F2 announcement is probably nearing, GSMArena reported on Saturday, citing a tipster.
Earlier, there were reports that Xiaomi was doing away with the Poco sub-brand altogether.
In July 2019, two top executives from Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi — Donovan Sung, former global spokesperson and Jai Mani, head of product of the Poco division — quit the company.
Sung made the announcement via a Twitter post: “It is my last month at Xiaomi. 5 years, 80 plus countries, 260 million plus Mi fans worldwide. My first time living outside the US in a foreign country. India’s number one smartphone brand. Absolutely incredible team. Loved every minute. Thank you Leijun, Xiaomi and Mi fans for the amazing memories,” he had said.
