This is the first we’re hearing of a Poco F2 Lite smartphone and considering this is a leak the information cannot be confirmed. But it does add to the curiosity of a new Poco phone’s imminent launch. This could also be the rumoured Poco smartphone which has been doing the rounds recently.

A Poco phone going by the moniker Poco X2 was spotted on benchmarking website, Geekbench. The smartphone was listed with 8GB of RAM and Android 10. It will run on Qualcomm octa-core processor clocked at 1.80GHz. There are however speculations that the Poco X2 could be a rebranded version of the Redmi K30.

Nothing can be confirmed now before anything official comes from Poco itself. But all these leaks do indicate towards a new Poco phone. Poco F1 is still one of the best mid-range phones even after over a year since its launch.
