If you missed it before somehow, here is a recap. Poco is back on the global scene with its F series and the first phone to launch in Europe this year is the Poco F2 Pro. Prices start at Euro 499 for the base variant, but one looks at the specifications sheet, and it becomes clear that there’s nothing base-like about it. The F2 Pro is by all intents and purposes a flagship-grade phone that doesn’t ask for flagship-grade money.
The smartphone comes in two variants: one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage that is priced at $499 (approximately $540), and another that includes 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage that costs $599 (roughly $650).
The Xiaomi Poco F2 Pro Little Highlights
The dual-SIM card-supported smartphone, a popular feature in several Asian markets, is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship octa-core Snapdragon 865 processor, coupled with Adreno 650GPU. POCO F2 Pro also sports what the company claims to be the largest vapour chamber in any smartphone to encourage LiquidCool. This technology retains the device cool even when a user is playing high-end games such as Fortnite and PUBG.
On the camera, the POCO F2 Pro includes a 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor, which functions as the primary camera, using a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro, and one 2MP depth sensor. The pop-up camera, which works as the selfie detector, is a 20MP lens.
The POCO F2 Pro, which comes in Neon Blue, Electric Purple, Cyber Grey, Phantom White, houses a 4,700mAh battery with support for quick charging, and ships with a 33W charger in the box.
Powerful Device with Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865 and LiquidCool Technology 2.0
POCO F2 Pro takes the mobile experience to the next level with Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865: the most effective 5G processor available on the market. Coupled with a Kryo™ 585 octa-core chip processor and Adreno™ 650 GPU, both offer 25% improved performance over their predecessor, delivering the best performance with always-connected users in mind. The capable SoC is complimented with ultra-high-speed LPDDR51 RAM and the most recent UFS 3.1 storage, which empowers POCO F2 Pro to provide top-notch read-and-write capacities for insanely smooth operations.
With LiquidCool Technology 2.0, POCO F2 Pro sports the largest vapour chamber available on the market, along with multiple heaps of graphite and graphene. This solution keeps the device cooling, particularly the SoC and the surface of the telephone, and sustains peak performance even under heavy action loads. Optimized for power users and TÜV Rheinland High Gaming Performance certified, POCO F2 Pro delivers an improved gaming experience with enhanced HDR display and the realistic haptic feedback with a z-axis linear motor. Additionally, it provides an immersive sound experience with Hi-Res Audio certification.
