Poco confirms the name of its next smartphone

In February, the company launched its first flagship smartphone of the year, the Poco X2 in the country. Still, the F2 Pro's display supports HDR10+, has a max brightness of 1200 nits, and also has a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1.

With the central government recently announcing the relaxation of norms in orange and green zones, Redmi recently held the second flash sale for the Redmi Note 9 Pro.

Of course, there are a few things missing as although there's a glass rear cover, the F2 Pro doesn't have wireless charging and we're not aware of any optical image stabilisation. Bezels are tight, and there's no notch thanks to the inclusion of a pop-up 20MP selfie camera.

Meanwhile, 91mobiles has leaked the color variants and pricing of the POCO F2 Pro. Instead, the Poco F1 is succeeded by a Poco F2 Pro, which got unveiled today.

These specs are exciting, the phone itself looks like a premium device, and the €499 (about $540) price makes the Poco F2 sound like a lot of bang for the buck.

The Poco F2 Pro is equipped with four cameras, as suggested earlier. They also feature additional modes including Portrait video mode, and a Pro mode, and Night Mode 2.0. This is supposedly done with a design that better dissipates the heat, which Poco says will stand gamers in good stead for long gaming sessions. The other aspects we can expect from the upcoming smartphone include a 6.7-inch FHD+ display and a 4700mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.
