Poco is only confirming that the brand is making a comeback and is building the hype train. However, we already know that the company is working on Poco F2 and Poco F2 Pro. The latter is expected to be the most expensive smartphone yet from the brand. Ahead of official launch, the smartphone has popped up on Gearbest along with promo materials.

Poco F2 Pro: Expected Price, Specifications
It is important to note that none of this information is coming from the official source. The images accompanying Gearbest’s listing seem more like a teaser than real deal. However, one can confirm that the device seems to be based on the Redmi K30 Pro. There is a possibility that the Redmi K30 Pro will be available globally as the Poco F2 Pro. This device is not expected to come to India and Poco F2 might be the one for Indian market.
The listing claims that it will possess the “most powerful chipset” and shows off the Snapdragon logo. This clearly hints at the Snapdragon 865 SoC found under the hood of the Redmi K30 Pro. It also promises true “full screen” experience, which is a hint at the use of pop-up selfie cameras. The Gearbest listing also mentions four cameras and shows off the circular camera module. There is also mention of a large battery and fast charging support. However, the listing does not offer any specifics for these specifications.
The Poco F2 Pro listing on Gearbest does reveal that it will debut with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage as standard. There will also be an option to upgrade to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. The smartphone will come in four colors: blue, grey, white and purple. The price remains hidden for now but a leak claimed €600 or €650 pricing in the European market. The Redmi K30 Pro translates to €500 but is not available outside China.
