POCO F2 Pro was announced earlier this month. POCO F2 Pro is the latest POCO phone and provides flagship-level specifications in half the price. And today the smartphone is finally announced in Malaysia. POCO F2 Pro isn’t a new phone but a re-branded Redmi K30 Pro, which was launched in China. Below are the specifications as well as the pricing for POCO F2 Pro in Malaysia.
POCO F2 Pro Specifications
Poco F2 Pro boasts a 6.67-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED OLED display, which will be a delight to use as there is no notch distraction. Although this display still comes with a 60Hz refresh rate, it is kind of a meh considering many brands are giving 90Hz for a lesser price tag. Anyways, the front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. There is a quad-camera setup featuring a 64MP main camera which is Sony IMX686, 13MP ultra-wide camera, 5MP telephoto macro sensor, and finally a 2MP depth sensor. 8K recording is also possible on the F2 Pro. While a pop-up camera carrying a 20-megapixel sensor will complete your selfie requirements.
