POCO Global launch set for May 12, POCO F2 Pro expected

POCO recently sent out media invites for a global launch event on May 12th in Spain, after the launch of POCO F1. Now it has confirmed that the event will start at 2PM CEST (5:30PM IST) on Tuesday. Google Play’s list of supported devices already revealed that the Redmi K30 Pro and upcoming POCO F2 Pro share the same “lmi” code name, so the POCO F2 Pro should be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro for the global markets.

To remind you, the Redmi K30 Pro, which was introduced in China back in March packs a 6.67-inch FHD+ E3 Super AMOLED screen from Samsung with 60Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate, is powered by Snapdragon 865, 5G SA/NSA support with  Snapdragon X55 Modem, has 3435mm² VC liquid-cooled heat sink, Game Turbo 3.0, 4D vibration when playing games, runs Android 10 with MIUI 11, comes with 3D glass back with AG technology, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, NFC, Hi-Res audio support and a 4700mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.

The phone has a 64MP Sony IMX686 1/1.7″ sensor, four-axis OIS, 13-megapixel 123° ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It comes in normal and Zoom Edition, and the only change in the zoom version is the presence of 8MP telephoto lens for up to 30x zoom, while the normal edition has a 5MP telephoto macro lens. It is not clear if the POCO F2 Pro will be the normal or zoom Edition of the K30 Pro.

POCO is also said to be working on POCO F2 and the POCO M2 Pro, but these are not expected to be launched at the event next week.
