Poco F2 With Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, Android 9.0 Pie Spotted on Geekbench
In a tweet on 24th December Xiaomi General Manager India, C Manmohan teased the tweeples with a “surprise” addition to the family of #NewPoco . ” I have a surprise for all of you,” Manmohan said in his tweet – “A #NewPOCO is coming. Can you guess when?” This has once again set speculations rife regarding technical specifications of PocoF2 and also the release date. Very recently, the successor of PocoF1 family was spotted on Geekbench benchmark database with a hint to technical specifications. The name of PocoF2 is not yet confirmed but #NewPoco will be the successor to the very successful PocoF1.
Benchmark Listing of Poco F2 on Geekbench
On Geekbench, key technical specifications of the #NewPoco, PocoF2, is powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and running on Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box. PocoF2 is assumed to be an advanced version of PocoF1 in terms of specifications and the current ones listed on Geekbench are adequate proof of it. PocoF1 had very recently received an Android 9.0 Pie based MIUI 10 update and powered with Snapdragon 845 SoC. It is a bit contradictory that PocoF2 should come with a 6 months old chipset of Snapdragon 845 SoC as a benchmark. It is strongly assumed that PocoF2 will be powered with next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
RAM as per Geekbench predictions is 6GB RAM but a variant of 8GB can also be assumed safely. In addition to the two RAM variants, there are chances of three native memory states comprising of mainly – 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The capacity of battery could range in 4,000mAh or 4,250mAh and will support Qualcomm’s proprietary Quick Charge 3.0. The benchmark listing also displayed that the Poco F2 will have a single-core score of 2,321 and a multi-core score of 7,564.
In order to stay ahead of the competition from its rival flagships, it is expected that Xiaomi, will be pricing the next gen #NewPoco such that it is affordable. Earlier this week Xiaomi launched a variant of the Poco F1 Armored Edition with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space for Rs. 23,999. In India, the Armored edition was launched on 26th December. On the technical specifications front of Pocof2 and its price range, we need to wait for final details from the company.
