Poco launched its ‘flagship killer’ Poco F2 Pro in Europe earlier this year. At launch, the smartphone ran MIUI 11 out-of-the-box. Now, a company spokesperson has revealed that the device will get a software update as early as this month.
According to a tweet by Poco’s Global product marketing manager and spokesperson Angus Kai Ho Ng, the Poco F2 Pro will get MIUI 12 update later this month (via Beebom). It’s worth noting however that there is no mention of an exact date just yet.
The Poco F2 Pro is the first flagship killer from the company for the European market. It is essentially a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro that launched in China last year. Going by the specs, the device is aimed at giving established players like OnePlus and Samsung a run for their money.
The Poco F2 Pro features a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and 1,200 nits maximum brightness. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC paired with up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
For photography, the device equips a quad-camera setup at the back. This includes a 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor with f/1.69 aperture, a 13MP ultra-wide angle shooter, 5MP telemacro lens, and a 2MP depth camera. Up front, a 20MP selfie camera is housed in a pop-up mechanism.
Other features include a 4,700mAh battery with 30W fast charging support, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and dual-SIM card slots. Connectivity options include 5G support, Bluetooth 5.1, IR blaster, and a headphone jack.
The smartphone is available in four colors – Neon Blue, Phantom White, Electric Purple, and Cyber Grey. Prices for the base variant start from €459, while the top-variant is available from €575 at Amazon.
