Still a rebadged Redmi K30 Pro

Pocophone has now officially announced the Poco F2 Pro, a successor to the quite popular Poco F1 smartphone, but it is somewhat disappointing as, in the end, it is just a rebadged Redmi K30 Pro.

As rumored earlier, the Poco F2 Pro is pretty much a rebadged Redmi K30 Pro, with the same dimensions, featuring the front and rear Gorilla Glass 5 and an aluminum frame. It measures 163.3x 75.4x8.9mm (6.43x2.97x0.35-inch) and weighs 219g.

The Poco F2 Pro has the same 6.67-inch 60Hz Super AMOLED screen with 2400x1080 resolution, up to 1,200 nits of brightness, 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and HDR10+ support. The screen does not have any notches or punch-holes as the phone features a motorized pop-up front camera.

The heart of the Poco F2 Pro is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC, and it comes paired up with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage, or 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of storage. There is no microSD card slot.

The main camera is identical to the Redmi K30 Pro, so you get a quad sensor rear camera with main 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor, with f/1.9 aperture and 26mm lens, 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 aperture and with ultrawide lens, 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 50mm telephoto macro lens, and 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is also a dual-LED dual-tone flash.

The front camera is a motorized pop-up system with a 20-megapixel sensor.

The rest of the features include LiquidCool Technology 2.0 for cooling the SoC, 4,700mAh battery with 30W fast charge, NFC, 5G, WiFi 6, and Super Bluetooth connectivity, IR Blaster, 3.5mm headphone jack and more.

The Poco F2 Pro should already be available via AliExpress and Gearbest, with the price set at €499 for the 6GB/128GB and €599 for the 8GB/256GB version. Pocophone was keen to note that, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee, JD Central, and other shops should get it eventually.
