Poco F2 Pro price for European market leaks

Poco F2 Pro

The Pocophone F1 truly is a legendary phone. Back in 2018, Xiaomi launched a sub-brand called Poco which gave birth to a true flagship-killer featuring that year flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a super-affordable price tag. The handset quickly achieved a “cult” status, and fans of the brand have been waiting for a sequel for quite a long time. This year, the hopes raised when Xiaomi decided to “revive” Poco as a separate brand. Like it or not, the new Poco F2 Pro is coming, and despite the company’s promises, it will be just a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro.

While there still no info regarding the launch windows, a new leak comes to tease us with the European pricing. According to 4GNews, from Portugal, the Poco F2 Pro is going to be priced over there at €649 (~$704). That’s the price for the variant 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The other variant with 8GB of RAM And 256GB of storage will set you back €749 (~$813). That may seem to be too much for a flagship killer. However, as aforementioned, this is the pricing for Portugal. There, the government has a “private copy tax” that makes prices of smartphones slightly higher than in the rest of Europe. In the best possible case scenario, the European “Global” variant will cost €599 (~$650).

Redmi K30 Pro may be renamed Poco F2 Pro, Google Play listing ...

The Redmi K30 Pro, or Poco F2 Pro, would come with the Snapdragon 865G at this price tag and a truly bezel-less display. Instead of fancy punch-hole solutions, the handset makes use of a pop-up mechanism for the selfie shooter. Therefore, it can have its AMOLED display free of any cutouts. Unfortunately, the handset has only a 60Hz refresh rate. That generated a huge backlash from customers, after all, the vanilla Redmi K30 (Poco X2 in India) features a whopping 120Hz display. According to the company’s general manager, this was a necessary move to bring down the price.

We suggest you take this news with a pinch or two of salt. After all, there’s still no word from Poco regarding the global launch of the Poco F2 series.
