Xiaomi’s sister brand, Poco has been winning the hearts of the people with its budget-oriented price range but flagship processors and other specs. The Poco F1 was launched months ago and since then there have been issues with the device such as display leak, notch issues and etc. Well, they got fixed and now the sales are back to normal.
A couple of days ago, Manu Kumar Jain, Global Vice President and Managing Director of Xiaomi India had quoted a tweet from C Manmohan, General Manager of Poco India, as seen below. The tweet mentioned the possibility of a new Poco device coming to the markets. Now, we are not sure whether they were referring to the Poco F1 Armoured Edition or a successor to the same, but let’s wait and watch.
Wait a minute! A #NewPOCO!
