The Xiaomi Poco F2 renders have come out online. And one main aspect of the phone that has come to light in all its glory is the waterdrop notch. Unlike its predecessor, Poco F1 which has a traditional notch, this one would differ. Tipster Benjamin Geskin posted a render of the Poco F2, which shows the same thing. Quite a number of Xiaomi phones are being publicised ahead of their launch and Poco F2 is no different. Take for example the Redmi 7 Pro. It was recently spotted in TENAA with a waterdrop-style display notch.
The Xiaomi Poco F2 will reportedly offer a higher screen-to-body ratio compared to the Poco F1. Also, in contrast to the Poco F1, it will have a vertically-placed dual rear camera setup. In this regard, the Poco F1 has a dual rear camera setup at the centre of the upper half of the back panel.
The concept render of the Poco F2 shows that it would have a fingerprint sensor at the back near where the Poco branding is situated. Recently, there also has been a listing of the same phone in Geekbench where it was tipped to have a 6GB RAM running on Android 9.0 Pie. It is also expected that the smartphone will come with the latest Snapdragon 845 SoC. In the Geekbench listing, the Poco F2 has scored 2,321 and 7,564 in single and multi-core tests. Seems like the Poco F1 will be replaced by Poco F2 very soon.
However, Poco General Manager C Manmohan wrote on Twitter that the company is still focusing on providing authentic experience with the Poco F1. To recall, the Xiaomi Poco F1 has IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 6.18-inches. The screen resolution is 1,080×2,246 and the aspect ratio for the same is 18.7:9.
