Yesterday, Poco started teasing season 2 on its social media channels. Poco India has followed up with an open letter to all of its fans.

With Poco teasing Season 2, it is likely that we will see all the devices with numeric 2 attached to them. There are also rumors of Poco launching Redmi K30 series with its own branding in India. The key thing to watch would be whether Poco can once again surprise the market. It has a real challenge in the form of Realme now. Poco would need more than flagship specifications and mid-range price to rekindle the Poco F1 days from 2018 this year.
