Poco India’s General Manager Manmohan Chandolu spilled some interesting details in a series of interviews. The most important bit of information is the potential launch date for the new Poco device which is confirmed to come by March this year. In addition, Chandolu reiterated the brand’s focus on delivering value-for-money smartphones with “high-end SoCs” and “large amounts of RAM”. In terms of software, the new smartphones will still rely on MIUI for Poco.
Chandolu also explained that Poco will still utilize Xiaomi’s robust supply chain and will even store user data in its parents’ data centers. After-sales services will also be done through Xiaomi’s channels.
Initially, Poco will operate in the online space but is planning to establish its offline channels down the road. As far as the global ambitions of the brand, Chandolu reiterated that for now, Poco is focused on the Indian market and the international expansion will take more time.
