The popular smartphone case maker, Spigen, has listed a case for a Xiaomi smartphone that hasn’t been announced yet – the Poco F2.
To recall, Xiaomi introduced the Poco sub-brand with the launch of Poco F1 in August 2018. The Poco F1 was a mixed bag. While it offered flagship-grade hardware at a lower mid-range price tag, it had severe build quality issues. In spite of those issues, the device became hugely popular thanks to its great value for money. With the Poco F1 turning a year old, everyone was expecting Xiaomi to launch the Poco F2. However, that did not happen. At least yet. And the listing on Spigen offers a lot of hope to Poco fans that a successor to the Poco F1 is coming

Could Poco F2 Be A Rebranded Redmi K20/Redmi K20 Pro?
There is a catch, though. The case listing of the Poco F2 on the Spigen website says that the case is compatible with the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro. So, is the Poco F2 going to be a rebranded Redmi K20 or Redmi K20 Pro? Well, it might be possible, since the Redmi K20 Pro is built upon the same philosophy as that of the Poco F1 – flagship-grade hardware at an affordable price tag. What further strengthens out doubts is the fact that the Poco F2 shown on the Spigen website looks exactly the same as the Redmi K20/Redmi K20 Pro. Although we cannot say anything for sure at the moment.
Also worth mentioning is that a Twitter account that goes by the name Tech Auntyji, suggests that Xiaomi will launch Poco F2 in India during the same time frame when Realme is set to launch the Realme X2 Pro in the country.
Darlings, the Poco F2 exists. And will be timed to rain on the party of a rival flagship killer. I really cannot say more.

Poco F2 Specifications Revealed Through Listing on Spigen
If the listing on the Spigen website is to be believed, the Poco F2 will have notch-less screen design and a pop-up camera mechanism. These images also reveal that the smartphone will have a triple-camera setup at the rear, power and volume buttons to the right-hand side of the device, and bottom-mounted USB Type-C port and speaker. The case has a cut-out at the top, and in my opinion, it could be for the 3.5mm audio jack. Other specifications of the smartphone are currently unknown.
