Poco was first revealed as a Xiaomi subsidiary brand back in August 2018. The brand soared in popularity with the launch of its first smartphone, the Poco F1, which was the first to bring a flagship chipset at an affordable price. In 2020, Poco became an independent brand in India and later on globally. While Poco still shares resources from Xiaomi in manufacturing and after-sales, it currently has independent product, sales, and marketing teams. Poco currently stands as one of India’s largest smartphone brands. In 2020, the brand shipped over 9 million Poco handsets globally. As of 2020, Poco had a presence in over 35 markets across the globe. The first Poco-branded smartphone, the Poco F1, shipped over 2.2 million units worldwide. Since its departure from Xiaomi, Poco has launched several new smartphones in the affordable and mid-range segments. Poco smartphones are unveiled under the ‘F’, ‘M’, ‘X’, and ‘C’ series. The Poco F2 Pro and the Poco F3 can be seen as the original successors to the very-first Pocophone, but both these devices weren’t made available in India, arguably the company’s most successful market. At present, Poco smartphones use Xiaomi’s MIUI Android skin tailored for Poco devices. More
