Xiaomi recently announced that POCO, an erstwhile sub-brand, will now function as an independent brand with new product launches of its own. This news appeared soon after Xiaomi seemed to be keen on reviving the POCO sub-brand, well over a year after the launch of POCO’s first smartphone, the POCO F1.
Well, the newest speculation is that Poco might unveil three smartphones this year. Well, the POCO F1 was an impressive device and a bestseller in the market with competent internals and a reasonable price tag. It looks like the brand is all set to bring its successor to recreate the same kind of hype once again in the coming months.
A tweet by tipster @stufflistings reveals an interesting claim that the company might launch three smartphones this year. Going by the tweet, the upcoming Pocophone seems to have the same model number as the Redmi smartphones.

A separate email received by popular tech blogger Sandeep Sarma aka RevAtlas also hints that POCO is working on three POCO F2 versions. It is expected that the recently leaked POCO F2 Lite with a 5000mAh battery, a Snapdragon 765G SoC and 6GB RAM could be the Redmi K30 variant.
If there is going to be a Lite model, then it could be a regular and 5G variant. Notably, the POCO F2 Lite is believed to be priced relatively cheaper than the POCO F1, which keeps its pricing under INR 20,000 for the base variant.
One thing that we can infer is that these speculations of a Redmi K30 model to be launched as POCO F2 Lite are not new. Back in 2019, when the Redmi K20 series was announced, there were claims that it could be the POCO F2 though the device did not see the light of the day back then. Its only now that the dots are beginning to join. However, we cannot come to any conclusion for now until there is an official confirmation from POCO.
