POCO F2 Pro smartphone sells for US$540, features Snapdragon 865, UFS 3.1 Storage

With the official unveiling of the Poco F2 Pro, things are certainly going to get interesting in the mobile space thanks to its top-of-the-line features like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a pop-up selfie camera, and a proprietary liquid cooling technology.

You can choose between two variants: the €499 (roughly US$541) base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, and the €599 (roughly US$650) model with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Poco, a spin off of Xiaomi, has purposely kept the phone affordable to carry on its legacy of making available innovative smartphones with modern-day specs sans the high price tag.

Sensible Display and Design

Frankly, there aren’t many exciting changes in the design and display of the Poco F2 Pro compared to its previous generation.

The smartphone features rigid corners that give it a crisp, boxy appeal along with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate, 3.5 mm headphone jack, IR blaster, and an in-display fingerprint reader. The front and the back are made with Gorilla Glass 5. However, it’s important to know that any kind of ingress protection is absent. 

The smartphone comes in four color options – Cyber Grey, Neon Blue, Phantom White, and Electric Purple.

Great Camera Quality

Considering everyone is always looking for content to post on their social media, the flagship has put in substantial effort to make Poco F2 Pro’s camera one of its main attractions. There is a quad rear camera setup that includes a 2MP depth sensor, 5MP telemacro shooter, 13MP wide-angle snapper, and 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor.

It also features a 20MP pop-up front camera that can click slow-motion selfies.

Flagship-Level Specifications

With regard to the specs, you get an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, UFS 3.1 storage (that isn’t expandable via microSD card), Liquid Cool technology 2.0, and Wi-Fi 6 certification. The phone also comes with a dual-mode 5G (NSA SA).

In addition to this, the Poco F2 Pro is powered by a 4700mAh battery that is compatible with 33W fast charging.

Currently, you can buy the smartphone from AliExpress and Gearbest, but it‘ll soon be available in various online and offline stores like Poco.net, Amazon, Shopee, JD Central, and Lazada.
