After the launch of Poco X2, everyone looked forward to the next Poco phone for 2020. Since a successor to Poco F1 has been long desired, it was natural that the company’s next launch will be Poco F2.
But now there is a possibility of another Poco phone known as Poco M2 Pro. The phone appeared on a Mi India website, and the phone’s code-name suggests that it has picked up a few specifications of Redmi Note 9 Pro.
Meanwhile, a lot about Poco F2 Pro has surfaced online from the leaked price, possible color variants, specifications, and more. So, here is everything you need to know about Poco F2 Pro and the mysterious Poco M2 Pro.
Poco M2 Pro Specifications
The mysterious Poco M2 is believed to be a mid-ranger that will compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy M31. This is because of its code name, which has previously appeared in the source code of Redmi Note 9 Pro, according to XDA developers.
Given the specs of Note 9 Pro, one can expect Poco M20 will also have Snapdragon 720G. Even if we are wrong, it will undoubtedly be a mid-ranger given Poco already has a premium phone in the lineup — Poco F2 Pro.
Poco F2 Pro Specifications
We all know that Poco X2 was nothing but a rebranded version of the Redmi K30. While Xiaomi never confirmed it, one could easily tell from the uncanny similarity in the specifications.
On this basis, users expected Xiaomi would follow the same strategy with Poco F2. Recently, the speculation turned into reality when a Google Play listing indicated that Poco F2 would, in fact, be the rebranded version of Redmi K30.
And this is not the only leak supporting the theory. A report from 91Mobile confirms that the phone will come in the same four colors (Blue, Grey, Purple, and White) as Redmi K30 Pro came in China.
If that is not enough, Gearbest, a popular e-commerce website in China, listed a Poco smartphone that appeared to have the same back panel as of Redmi K30 Pro. Another Poco F2 latest leak hints that the phone will have 33W charging, again the same as Redmi K30 Pro.
Now that we have established the connection between Poco F2 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro, it is safe to say that most (if not all) Poco F2 specs will be from Redmi K30.

While there is no information on the Poco M2 Pro release date, Xiaomi might throw in a surprise announcement at the Poco F2 Pro launch event.
Poco M2 Pro and F2 Pro Price
According to the same 91Mobile report that we mentioned earlier, Poco F2 Pro will be priced at EUR 570 (~ Rs. 46,800) for the 128GB model.
But another report claims that the price of 6GB RAM + 128GB variant will be EUR 649 (~ Rs. 53,300) and EUR 749 (~ Rs. Rs. 61,600) for the 8GB RAM + 256GB variant.
We will only get to know the actual price at the time of the Poco F2 Pro launch. However, it will certainly be lower than this since Xiaomi devices are usually priced a little higher in the EU market.
We have no leaks or rumors surrounding the Poco M2 Pro price for now. But we will update this article as soon we hear something.
