Announcement. Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro - copy of Redmi K30 Pro

The first Poco, the famous Pocophone F1, came out of Xiaomi - well, you’ll just lick your fingers! Really flagship killer. It’s even strange that they forgot about the existence of this line for such a long time.

Now they remembered. And the Poco F2 Pro is a very interesting smartphone for its money. Inexpensive (well, relatively), powerful, sometimes even, I would say, clever. Only this is a copy ... Another smartphone, created not by developers, but by marketers.

Yes Yes. Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro is an almost exact copy of the Redmi K30 Pro smartphone announced in March (our news). The only major difference is the other set of frequencies 4G and 5G. 5G is not very interesting to us - but in terms of 4G this new Poco is much closer to us than the old Realme.

The second difference is software. Shell “MIUI For POCO” instead of “MIUI”. What exactly is the difference - an autopsy will show. But since Poco F2 Pro - a little animal for global markets, you can hope for a minimum number of surprises.

The rest is no change. Even the colors, it seems, are exactly the same. Iron is the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. A sophisticated cooling system. A lot of RAM - 6 GB LPDDR4X or 8 GB faster and more expensive LPDDR5. Flash memory is 128 or 256 GB, but there is no support for memory cards.

The battery is large, 4700 mAh, fast charging, 33 watts.

The screen is handsome, large, with high resolution (6.67 ″, 395 ppi).

Front camera “bouncing”, at 20megapixels. The rear unit consists of four modules (the main one is 64 MP, plus wide-angle, plus “telemacro” - which is a smart word, plus a depth sensor).

There is NFC, Wi-Fi is an ultra-modern 6 (ax), the fingerprint scanner, according to the latest fashion creeps, is hidden in the screen.

Price. $ 499 (₽36900) / € 499 (₽39900, $ 540) for version 6 + 128 GB. And $ 599 (₽44,200) / € 599 (₽47,900, $ 649) for 8 + 256 GB.

The device has already been announced in some Chinesestores. GearBest, Banggood. Both of them ask for the younger version exactly $ 499 (in terms of rubles at their internal rates, of course). I suspect that on Aliexpress Poco, if not today, then tomorrow will also appear.

Will F2 Pro officially be brought to Russia and how muchit will cost us - is still unknown. But the Ukrainians have already decided. 16999 hryvnias (₽46800, $ 634) for the younger version and 18999 hryvnias (₽52300, $ 708) for the older one.
