Poco has already acknowledged that the Poco F2 is in the pipeline. When it goes official, it is expected to feature flagship Snapdragon 865 mobile platform from Qualcomm. We know for sure that Redmi K30 Pro, launched in China, is not coming to India as the Poco F2. But another F2 Pro smartphone recently made an appearance on the Google Play listing. It suggested that the handset will be launched as a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 Pro.

This is strange as Poco India’s General Manager C Manmohan has already confirmed that F2 will be a different phone than the recently launched Redmi K30 Pro. There could be a possibility that the Poco F2 Pro might launch with specifications similar to that of Redmi K30 Pro in other markets than India. It remains to be seen which markets will get the upcoming F2 Pro smartphone.
