Poco F2, will it master speed & reach finish line ahead in F1 race?


It has been quite a while that Poco F2 was teased by Xiaomi testing the patience of buyers. Since then I have come across many queries on different platforms like should I wait for Poco F2, should I buy One Plus7 or Poco F2, will Poco f2 be a worthy upgrade of Poco F1, will Poco F1 production stop on the launch of Poco F2, will Poco F2 be a gaming mobile, starting price and launch date of Poco F2, is Mi9 rebranded as PocoF2 and so on and so forth. Some we have tried to address in our previous blogs.

Is it worth waiting for Poco F2 or should I buy Poco F1? 

A question that crops into the mind “Is Pocofone F2 a better version of Poco F1 or equally good?”

Poco F2 is definitely a winner in the F1 Race. Let us try to address it by doing a comparative analysis of Xiaomi’s budget segment launch in Poco series. You will find that the most important feature contributing towards performance is chipset and Poco F2 is powered with Snapdragon 855 which is based on 7 NM technology. This means 50% additional battery backup and relatively a better support to artificial intelligence. Poco F1 had chipset Snapdragon 845 on 11 NM technology. This is one of the most important differentiators. Now coming to the camera, it is speculated that Poco F2 will sport same camera features as Mi 9 likewise Poco F1 took from Mi 8. This means you can expect a triple camera with the primary camera having the same lens F1.7.

Comparative Analysis of Features of Poco F1 and Poco F2

In order to retain the tag of the budget phone, few compromises need to be done. It includes no support for 5G, no amoled screen and under display fingerprint. Competition with OnePlus can witness Poco F2 be launched ahead of OnePlus 7 which can be in the month of May. Also looking at its past trend, three months after the launch of Mi8, Poco F1 was launched. If Xiaomi continues with the trend then 3 months after February launch of Mi 9 will zero down to May 2019.

Let us draw a comparison between the two generations of Poco family and make it easy for you to take a decision!
