The company is reportedly planning to launch three smartphones this year. We have already seen the Poco X2 and the two other devices could be the Poco F2 and F2 Lite. A leak claimed that Poco F2 Lite will come with Snapdragon 765 and 5,000mAh battery. It is recommended that you take this information with a grain of salt. With COVID-19 causing major disruption, it is not immediately how these companies are placed for now. Alongside Poco F2, a Xiaomi smartphone has also received IMDA certification. Poco has also confirmed that it is working on true wireless earbuds as second product category.
