There is already a launch date. As can be learned from a press release, Poco will “wake up” on May 12, 2020. It is supposed to be a global launch, so the smartphone will also be available in Europe. This matches the leak that is currently spreading on Twitter, as reported by GSMArena.
Announcement of the Pocophone F2
If the Poco F2 Pro is really a Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro for the global market, then we can expect a well-equipped mobile phone with Snapdragon 865 as a chipset. The AMOLED display would have a diagonal of a 6.67-inch Full HD+ from Samsung with 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate. Also the cameras can take pictures with up to 64 MP with Sony IMX686 1/1.7″ sensor. And a 4700mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.
91Mobiles in a report claims that the Poco F2 Pro will be launched at 570 euros for the 128GB storage variant. It is said to arrive in White, Purple, Grey, and Blue colour options.
A previous leak by a Portugal tech site had revealed that the POCO F2 Pro will be priced at 649 euros for the 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant. And 749 euros for the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variant in the Portuguese market. The prices of smartphones in Portugal are generally higher compared to other European countries because of the country’s private tax.
