Poco F2 concept render shows waterdrop notch, will be better designed than Poco F1

Poco F2

Xiaomi just launched the Mi Play in China. This budget segment phone is different from all other Xiaomi devices because of the premium look that it sports. TheMi Play is the first phone from the company to have a waterdrop notch display. Looks like Xiaomi is working on another phone with almost the same design as the Mi Play. It is the successor to the Poco F1, aka Poco F2. New concept renders of the Poco F2 has surfaced online revealing that the phone will come with waterdrop style notch on the front panel that will equip the single selfie camera. The concept render shows off the phone from both front and back giving a fair idea of the upcoming Poco F2 could look. The render suggests that the upcoming Poco phone or Poco F2 will be a better-looking device than the Poco F1.

The Poco F1 was launched back in the month of August last year and by the end of 2018, it received several awards for being the best value for money phone of 2018. With the success of the Poco F1 consumers now have high expectations from the successor of the phone aka Poco F2. Xiaomi sub-brand is already working on the Poco F2 as we reported that the phone has already made its way to the Geekbench. The benchmark listing revealed some of the key specs of the phone. Now, this is for the first time that render of the Poco F2 has surfaced online revealing the design of the phone.

The concept render shared by a popular tipster Benjamin Geskin shows the Poco F2 from both front and back. In the render the phone appear in black colour, there could be other colour options too. As the render suggests, the Poco F2 will include a waterdrop notch on the front and not traditional wide notch as seen on the Poco F1. With the inclusion of the tiny teardrop notch, it can be assumed that the Poco F2 will have a bigger screen space which will enable users to have a great video viewing experience on the phone. The bezels of the Poco F2 appears to be much slimmer compared to Poco F1 in the render.

The concept render further reveals that similar to the Poco F1, the Poco F2 will also sport dual cameras which will be vertically aligned. But, the placement of the cameras on the Poco F2 will be slightly different from the Poco F1. In the Poco F2, the dual rear cameras will sit on the top left corner. The Poco F1 includes the dual camera set up in the middle of the rear panel. The concept render also reveals that the Poco F2 will come with a rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor.

For the Poco F2, Xiaomi could concentrate more on improving the design and camera performance of the phone which were one of the weak areas for Poco F1. Compared to the competitors the Poco F1 isn’t too attractive to look at. Hence, it is possible that Poco might use metallic or glass finish for the Poco F2 to improve the overall look of the phone. The render also shows the back side of the Poco F2 with a metallic finish.

As far as the core hardware is concerned, the Geekbench listing revealed that Poco F2 will not have a lot of things changed compared to the Poco F1. The benchmark listing revealed that the Poco F2 will come with the same hardware setup as the Poco F1. The phone is said to be powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 6GB RAM. As the Poco F1 has 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM variants, we expect an 8GB RAM model for the Poco F2 too.
