POCO have now officially unveiled their latest device, the POCO F2 Pro on a global launch event livestream. And on paper, the device is looking to be pretty beastly. The device comes equipped with some industry leading specs like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, some great battery life and a pretty admirable screen. And all of that, with a starting price of 499 Euros (~RM2300).
The devices are now available at Gearbest and AliExpress, and Malaysia will be getting the device at a later date on e-commerce sites like Lazada and Shopee.
On to what the device is equipped with. The POCO F2 Pro comes with a 6.67″ FHD+ AMOLED display with a 20MP pop-up camera. That’s a pretty great proposition for the price, especially in the current market which has turned away from the pop-up camera form factor.
The device also comes with two variants, a 6GB RAM LPDDR4X + 128GB UFS 3.1 storage and an 8GB RAM LPDDR5 + 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Powering the device is a well-sized 4700mAh battery capable of a 30W fast charge via USB-C. POCO claims this will charge the device up from 0-100 percent in 63 minutes.
On the rear of the device, the POCO F2 Pro comes with a quad camera setup consisting of a 64MP Sony IMX686 main lens, 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 5MP telelphoto lens and 2MP depth sensor.
There are also other intricacies and specs that make the device stand out among the rest. The phone also features LiquidCool Technology 2.0, in-display fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster among others. The phone also comes in four different colours; Neon Blue, Phantom White, Electric Purple and Cyber Grey.
Overall, like I said earlier, the device is packing some heat on paper. How the device actually performs, remains to be seen. But I’m hopeful. As of now, the phone isn’t available in Malaysia just yet, but it should be coming soon. Stay tuned to know when the POCO F2 Pro lands on our shores!
