When Poco began off as a Xiaomi sub-brand in 2018 with its first smartphone, the Poco F1, no person had an concept that the model would turn out to be as fashionable as it’s right this moment, and that too with only one smartphone, the Poco F1! Properly, the Poco model is certainly highly regarded and there’s been plenty of hypothesis across the state of the model, what with no telephones or some other gadget after the F1, and no point out of “Poco” from anybody Xiaomi. Properly, all that hypothesis ends right this moment, as Xiaomi India Head, Manu Kumar Jain, introduced on Twitter that Poco will now be impartial smartphone model. Take a look at his tweet:
