There was a time when we thought POCO was dead or something, but the previous month was good news for POCO fans. The POCO F2 Pro was unveiled globally, and a week or two ago POCO F2 Pro was also launched in Malaysia. Now, its time for Pakistan to get hands-on the POCO’s latest offerings. Now you are asking me “Boiler, What are the specs, pricing, and untold truths?” Read below, I have answered all your questions pal!

POCO F2 Pro Specifications

POCO F2 Pro features a 6.67-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED OLED display, which will be a treat to watch movies on since there is no ugly notch in there. And don’t worry about the durability, the POCO F2 survived Jerry Rig’s durability test with flying colors. And there is also a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for extra protection. 

There is a quad-camera setup featuring a  64MP main camera which is Sony IMX686, 13MP ultra-wide camera, 5MP telephoto macro sensor, and finally a 2MP depth sensor.  Features like 8K recording are present on the POCO F2 Pro.

Moving to the main highlight of the F2 Pro, the processor. The processor is no other than Qualcomm’s best ever Snapdragon 865 chipset. The chipset is 5G support, which is sadly of no use for us. But the performance will never disappoint you. You will be given a 4,700mAh battery on the POCO F2 Pro. And if you are playing PUBG mobile or other games like me, a 4700mAH is no big deal to finish. For that, there is a 30W fast charging that can charge 100% in just 63 minutes.

And the best part? The legendry 3.5mm port is present on the F2 Pro. In-display fingerprint sensor. Also, a Z-axis linear motor, a good old IR blaster, NFC, and IP53 splash resistance are some other noticeable features. Out of the box, you will be greeted by Poco Launcher 2.0 on top of Android 10.

The price is what matters the most, and for the new POCO there are two variants launched globally. Usually, Xiaomi launches just one variant of a smartphone in Pakistan, but this time the two variants of the phone are a bit different. The base model which comes with 6GB RAM & 128GB internal storage features LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 3.0. While the top tier model with 8GB RAM & 256GB Internal storage options comes with a faster LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The expected price of the POCO F2 Pro in Pakistan is Rs.85000 and Rs.99,000 respectively. Do note that these prices are not official but translated prices of global variants.

POCO F2 Pro – The Untold Story

It was actually a surprise for a sudden teaser from Xiaomi that they posted on Facebook. As you know, there is currently no smartphone in Pakistan with Snapdragon 865, so this device is special. Coming to the untold story, well, F2 Pro isn’t a new device but a re-branded Redmi K30 Pro 5G smartphone. In China, the Redmi K30 pro 5G is much cheaper compared to global POCO F2 Pro.

Just a warning, Don’t keep your hopes high this time! POCO F2 Pro will be priced higher compared to the POCO F1. And why will it not? POCO F1 used a one-gen old processor whereas the POCO F2 is using the current-gen chipset. Let’s just hope Xiaomi surprises us this time as they did with Mi Note 10 Lite Price*.
