After months of wait, Poco has officially launched Poco F2 Pro. The phone is a sequel to the Poco F1 which was a huge success for the company back in 2018.
It is also the second Poco contender in 2020. In February, the Poco brand revealed a new phone lineup and launched Poco X2. The phone was priced at Rs 15,999 and featured similar specs of Redmi K30, a Xiaomi flagship that was launched back in 2018.
The company has applied the same strategy for today’s launch. As we expected, Poco F2 Pro bundles all the specs of Redmi K30 Pro that Xiaomi launched last month.
Poco F2 Pro Specifications, Availability and Price
Unlike the Poco X2, the phone offers a circular camera at the back and a pop-up selfie camera at the front as opposed to the regular dual-hole punch cutout on the display of Poco X2.
Poco F2 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 92.7% screen to body ratio. On top of that, the phone has an in-display fingerprint sensor to keep up with the competition. However, the display refresh rate is standard 60Hz which might be a disadvantage against phones coming with increased refresh rates.
The phone runs on Snapdragon 865, which means it will support 5G. Other than that, it carries a 4700mAh battery with 33W fast charging supported by a USB-C type port. Despite being a flagship, Poco has retained the headphone jack in the Poco F2 Pro which is always appreciated. On the inside, there is, of course, the Poco launcher and the device comes with the latest Android 10 out of the box.
The circular back camera holds four camera lens — a 64MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro camera, and a 5MP telephoto.
According to Poco, the phone’s real gem is the 5MP telemacro lens which also has the capability to take zoom photos while keeping the image quality intact.
Poco F2 Pro for the 6GB + 128GB model is priced at EUR 499 which is roughly Rs 40,714 in India. Meanwhile, the 8GB + 256 GB variant is priced at EUR 599 which is close to Rs 48,870. It comes in four colors — Blue, Grey, Purple, and White.
