Some rumors are claiming that the phone might go official in the month of May or June. Considering what a great phone Poco F1 is and the great value for money that it offers, we expect the Poco F2 to be the same. With features such as a pop-up front camera, near bezel-less design, 3.5mm audio jack, an affordable price tag combined with a flagship level processor, this phone is set to create a stir in the market upon its launch.
