The Poco F2 Pro launch day was leaked, and we know the phone is coming on May 12. Today a new rumor popped up, claiming the likely-renamed Redmi K30 Pro will arrive in four colors – Purple, White, Blue, Gray. According to one source, the 128 GB version of the phone will be priced at INR47,000 or the equivalent of €570.
Is this the Poco F2 Pro?
This price tag is quite different from another that leaked at the end of April. Back then it was said to be €649 for the 6/128 GB option and €749 for the 8/256 GB variant. Even with taxes and tariffs, the Poco F2 Pro will unlikely follow the trend, set by the Pocophone F1 of an affordable smartphone with a flagship chipset. For comparison, the two-year-old phone with maximum RAM and storage was priced at INR30,000 ($430) – that’s a 30% difference.
Another question also looms – what is going on with Poco’s naming department? The upcoming device will be the third one under this brand and we see zero continuity – first Poco F1, then Poco X2, and now Poco F2 Pro, even if the latter two are rebranded phones from the same Redmi K30 family.
The launch is said to take place in five days, so that’s when we expect a lot of questions to be answered.
