POCO, now an independent brand in India, has confirmed that there will be no POCO F2. While that does not necessarily mean that there will never be a Pocophone F2, the next POCO will be something entirely different. The company has confirmed when to expect the launch of the new device, too.

Following on from yesterday, POCO, the Indian brand spun-off from Xiaomi, has confirmed more details about its next smartphone. Firstly, it will not be the POCO F2, which the company confirmed on Twitter. We should point out that this does not preclude the POCO F2 from launching, but it will not be POCO's next smartphone.

Incidentally, a new POCO smartphone does not mean that a new Pocophone is on the horizon, either. Without restating ourselves too much, POCO will only operate in India for the time being and will control the global operations of the Pocophone brand.

Chandolu Manmohan, GM of POCO India, has also confirmed in an interview with Outlook India that the next POCO smartphone will arrive next month. Accordingly, @IndiaPOCO posted a photo on Twitter confirming this, but a more specific date has not been offered so far.

The name of the next POCO has not been confirmed yet, either. The company may have dropped a hint that it will be called the POCO X2 though, as we covered yesterday. Rumour has it that the POCO X2 will be based on the Redmi K30, but this remains unconfirmed, too.
