Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO stunned smartphone enthusiasts around the world with its first smartphone – the POCO/Pocophone F1. This barebones flagship killer appeased the users who demanded excellent performance while compromising on other things including display or charging.
The XDA Forums for the device are abundant with custom ROMs, recoveries, and mods, thanks to the factor of affordability attached to the phone. But after launching the POCO F1 in 2018, the brand went into a limbo of nearly 18 months, and only resurfaced earlier in 2020 as an independent entity to launch the POCO X2, which left the entire community dazed and yearning for the real POCO F1 successor.
Now, after a seemingly endless wait, the POCO F1’s successor – the POCO F2 Pro – is finally launching tomorrow.
POCO Global took to Twitter to announce the launch of the POCO F2 Pro. The event on May 12th is likely targetted at the European consumers and will take place online citing restrictions and limitations due to COVID-19.

POCO F2 Pro Specifications
POCO F2 Pro, the phone has been on our radar almost since the POCO X2 launch. Sometime last week, the POCO F2 Pro was added to the list of Google Play certified devices.
It is believed that the Poco F2 Pro will be a rebranded version of Redmi K30 Pro. F2 Pro will come in four colour options – White, Purple, Grey, and Blue.
From what we know so far, the Poco F2 Pro will feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 60 Hz or 90 Hz refresh rate. It will also feature a 20MP pop-up selfie camera and a quad-camera setup on the back.
The main camera on the back may be of 64 MP and may be paired with a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5 MP macro lens along with a 2 MP depth sensor. The smartphone will be equipped with a 4,700 mAh battery with 33 W fast charging support and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
The smartphone may be the most expensive one yet from Poco. The smartphone is expected to be priced at €570 (which roughly translates to Rs 47,000).
