Original post – December 24, 2018: Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 has stunned the markets globally with its unbeatable price and the powerpack features this year. The company is now about to bring something new, they are calling it the New Poco. The Pocophone, called Poco in India, has just got its first iteration with the F1 later this year. Could this even be possible that the company would bring a successor to the phone just within a few months? Well you must relax yourself from expecting any kind of successor to phone.The #NewPoco could be a more healthier variant of Pocophone F1 or it may have some special design edition. It’s really not a good idea to announce the next iteration with a same processor, specially when the first had hit the market with its extravaganza Snapdragon 845. Expect not to see a Pocophone F2 with anything less than Snapdragon 855. If you are thinking why so hype when there couldn’t a real upgrade coming up, then it’s simple. It’s the same hype that initially Pocophone F1 brought up to the community. So when they say they something new up their sleeves. You may expect something like before. Here is what C. Manmohan, the GM Xiaomi India tweeted just an hour ago.

I have a surprise for all of you. A #NewPOCO is coming. Can you guess when? 🍾 — C Manmohan (@cmanmohan) 24 December 2018 Poco India followed with the same excitement just after a few minutes.
