A couple of years ago, Xiaomi created a new brand POCO for the international market. The first product from this line was quite popular. But there was a certain reason behind this – the first POCO smartphone was the cheapest flagship of that time. However, last year, Xiaomi revised its strategy and separated Redmi. In this dual-brand strategy, it seems POCO has no role. Those who have been thinking so were in deep confusion. Not that long ago, this brand released the POCO F2 Pro with an outstanding specs list and a low price tag. But this is not the only model coming our way from POCO this year. Today, its official Twitter channel in India released a video giving tribute to all POCO fans and hinted a new model is on the way.

Unfortunately, there is no certain information concerning the upcoming phone. But we can take a look at the key features of the POCO F2 Pro launched recently, and make guess.
POCO F2 Pro Features
We guess you all know the POCO F2 Pro is the rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. It features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, Liquid tech 2.0, a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display, 64MP quad-camera, and much more.
As for the processor, it is based on a 7nm process node. The chip also integrates an Adreno 650 powerful GPU. There is also a combination of 6/8 LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 flash storage.
The smartphone houses a multi-layered liquid cool feature that allows dissipating heat during peak times. It covers 28% of the hardware for effective cooling and can reduce the temperature by 14°C. Liquid Cool 2.0 can be a deal-breaker while playing graphics-intensive games.
Like the Redmi K30 Pro, the display of this handset is somewhat amazing. The 6.67-inch AMOLED full-view display comes with a resolution of 2400 x 1090 pixels. It supports HDR 10+ accurate coloring and houses DC dimming to reduce flickering. It is also TUV Rheinland Full care display certified.
The POCO F2 Pro features a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 primary sensor. It is further coupled with a 2-megapixel depth sensor (f/2.4 aperture), a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 5-megapixel macro sensor. It can record videos at 120fps. A 20-megapixel pop-up selfie camera is present on the front for video calling and quick authentication.
The new smartphone is available in two storage variants of 6GBR AM + 128 GB internal storage, and 8GB + 256 GB. The smartphone will retail for $500/€500 and the 8GB variants will be available for €600.
