POCO launched its POCO X2 smartphone a little while ago in India. That, however, did not stop fans of the brand from asking about the long-awaited POCO F2 smartphone. After a lot of waiting, Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO has finally started openly talking about its upcoming smartphone(s). The company is doing things on two fronts – a global launch and an Indian launch. While the company’s Indian social media handles have been relatively silent about the upcoming launch, its global social media handles are doing anything but. Over the past week, POCO Global has been teasing the arrival of its upcoming smartphone and, if rumours are to be believed, the company will globally launch the POCO F2 Pro smartphone, which is tipped to be a rebranded variant of the Redmi K30 Pro smartphone. Now, courtesy of a new listing on e-commerce website Gearbest, it looks like the Redmi K30 Pro being rebranded as the POCO F2 Pro could be more than just an assumption. Take a look at the POCO F2 Pro listing on the e-commerce website and find out what it has in store for us.

As seen in the product page images, the alleged POCO F2 Pro smartphone looks more or less like the rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. We can clearly spot a circular rear camera setup and a pop-up selfie snapper. The product description mentions that the POCO F2 PRo will feature some ‘powerful’ advantages – a powerful chipset, large memory, true full screen, excellent camera, large battery, and fast charge. The page also lists two memory variants of the POCO F2 Pro – one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and one with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Furthermore, we can spot four color variants of the device – Purple, White, Gray, and Blue.
As far as the rest of the specifications are concerned, if the POCO F2 Pro is indeed a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro, we are foreseeing a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED panel, which will come with a Full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels and a 395 pixels per inch pixel density. The device will be protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass – front and back.
Under the hood, the POCO F2 Pro will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, which will be paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. As far as OS is concerned, the POCO F2 Pro will ship with the latest Android 10 OS out of the box with the company’s in-house MIUI 11 skin baked atop.
Coming to the cameras of the device, the POCO F2 Pro will flaunt a quadruple rear camera setup, which will include a 64MP primary lens, a 64MP telephoto shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, the POCO F2 Pro will sport a 20MP pop-up selfie shooter.
Once again, we would like to inform our readers that the speculated specifications of the POCO F2 Pro are only going to hold true if it is indeed the rebranded version of the Redmi K30 Pro smartphone. To learn more about the Redmi K30 Pro, you can head to our previous coverage for the same.
