Xiaomi’s POCOPHONE F1 made a big splash this year whenever it released. The phone sports flagship specs and matches it with a mid-range price tag tag. Tomorrow, Xiaomi India will announce a fresh POCOPHONE just 4 months after the initial one unveiled.
But, that's not all.
I have a surprise for all of you. A #NewPOCO is coming. Can you guess when? 🍾

A tweet posted by the country’s general manager, C. Manmohan, revealed that a fresh Pocophone is expected. The formal POCO India Twitter account tweeted later that the fresh POCOPHONE will release tomorrow.
It is not yet confirmed if tomorrow’s release is for the POCOPHONE F2 however likely by the absence of fanfare, it doesn’t seem including it. One rumor that appears to be gaining ground says the launch is for kevlar versions for the 6GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB versions.
Another exclusive leak by me and @mysmartprice! POCO/ Pocophone F1 6GB+64GB & 6GB+128GB Storage variants will soon be available in Kevlar Back (which was earlier exclusive to 8GB variant). European markets will receive these first and Indian launch will be soon as well. pic.twitter.com/f8wtsT1agu

The news of a Kevlar variant for these models initially surfaced about three weeks ago via a leak by Ishan Agarwal. The kevlar variant is exclusive to the 8GB RAM + 256GB variant and is sold as the POCO F1 Armored Edition. Now it looks Xiaomi is leading the stronger back cover to the 64GB and 128GB models.

This is all still speculation however seeing as there isn’t a teaser sheet and there is practically no hype for the launch tomorrow, it is going not a POCOPHONE F2.
