At the beginning of the year, POCO, which was a sub-brand of the Xiaomi family, became independent from the Chinese manufacturer and rumors soon arose that it was preparing to make the world aware of a new smartphone. Now it is the turn of the online trading platform Gearbest to list the model on the website and publish images with information about the alleged POCO F2 Pro. One of them refers to a "more accessible" price.
In 2018 the old Xiaomi brand made known the Pocophone F1, the only smartphone produced by POCO and which was also launched in Portugal, with the value starting at 330 euros. According to the ecommerce platform, the value of the company's next smartphone, allegedly with the name POCO F2 Pro, will be "more accessible", not yet establishing a comparison term. The expression is in the images posted on the website about the mobile phone, with no details on prices.
According to the information, the model will integrate a "more powerful chipset" and an "excellent camera", in addition to fast charge, according to the company. Believing in the information available on the website, the smartphone will appear in two versions: 8 GB RAM / 256 GB ROM and 6GB RAM / 128 GB ROM. As for colors, it may be available in purple, gray, blue and white.
In March, the general manager of POCO India C Manmohan assured in a webinar that the smartphone will not be a version similar to the Redmi K30 Pro. However, with this information, rumors that this smartphone may be similar to Xiaomi's may do more sense. The teasers suggest, for example, a true "full screen" without notch and a circular camera module, as with the Redmi K30 Pro.
The POCO F1, the only device produced by the former Xiaomi brand, made its debut in the smartphone market in August 2018, arriving with the promise of quality for a more affordable price in the order of 300 euros. The smartphone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 6.18-inch FullHD + LCD screen, two 20 MP + 5 MP rear cameras and a 20 MP front camera.
The mobile phone has gained popularity around the world, especially in India, and according to Manu Kumar Jain, the POCO F1 surpassed the OnePlus 6 as the best-selling smartphone in the country.
