Xiaomi has announced the latest device from its sub-brand, POCO F2 Pro is now available in the UK. Tailored to tech enthusiasts, the device prioritises performance over frills – without the traditional flagship price tag.
With the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform under the hood, POCO F2 Pro offers sustained peak performance, extremely fast processing speeds, and a true full-screen viewing experience that’ll have techies waving goodbye to their current daily driver.
Powerfully cool with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and LiquidCool Technology 2.0
POCO F2 Pro takes the mobile experience to the next level with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865: the most powerful 5G processor on the market. Paired with a Kryo 585 octa-core chip processor and Adreno 650 GPU, both offer 25% improved performance over their predecessor, delivering the ultimate performance with constantly connected users in mind. The powerful SoC is complimented with ultra-high-speed LPDDR5 RAM and the latest UFS 3.1 storage, which enable POCO F2 Pro to offer top-notch read-and-write capabilities for insanely smooth operations.
With LiquidCool Technology 2.0, POCO F2 Pro sports the largest vapour chamber available on the market, along with multiple stacks of graphite and graphene. This solution keeps the device cool, especially the SoC and the surface of the phone, and sustains peak performance even under heavy activity loads. Optimised for power users and TÜV Rheinland High Gaming Performance certified, POCO F2 Pro delivers an improved gaming experience with enhanced HDR display and the realistic haptic feedback with a z-axis linear motor. It also offers an immersive audio experience with Hi-Res Audio certification.
Sophistication meets vibrancy with a sleek design and 6.67” AMOLED ultimate Full-Screen Display
Checking all the boxes for a true-blue flagship killer, POCO F2 Pro touts a variety of favourite features, including an optical in-screen fingerprint sensor and Corning®️ Gorilla®️ Glass 5 on the front and back for sturdy protection.
With a contrast ratio of 5000000:1 and a brightness of 500 nits (typ) / 800 nits (HBM), the device brings display quality to the forefront. No matter the time of day, users can count on a comfortable viewing experience through POCO F2 Pro’s bright 6.67” AMOLED ultimate Full-Screen Display, featuring a 360° triple ambient light sensor to deliver accurate ambient light detection and smooth brightness adjustment.
Taking display quality even further, the device boasts the latest TÜV Rheinland Full Care Display Certification, HDR10+, DC dimming, and Sunlight Mode 2.0. Through its advanced customisable colour scheme settings, users can incorporate their own unique flair to the device’s display for a personalised experience.
Photography reigns supreme with 64MP quad rear camera and 20MP pop-up camera Touting an impressive 64MP rear quad camera set up, POCO F2 Pro’s Sony IMX686 sensor captures clear, detailed images, while its 13MP 123° ultra-wide-angle lens lets users take effortlessly gorgeous landscapes and large group photos. A 5MP macro and 2MP depth sensor round out the rear camera for detailed close-ups with unparalleled bokeh, allowing for beautiful images every time.
With ultra-high definition video recording at 8K (24fps) and 4K (60fps), POCO F2 Pro turns any user into a cinematographer. The Pro mode for both photo and video offers more control over focus and exposure, so users can capture higher quality images without the use of a DSLR or other professional cameras.
On the front, POCO F2 Pro sports a massive 20MP pop-up camera with a multicolour notification light, helping minimise front screen bezels without compromising camera quality. The selfie camera also sports 120fps slow-motion video recording capability to turn even basic videos into cinematic masterpieces.
Accelerated performance shines with high-capacity 4,700mAh (typ) battery and swift 9.6Gbps connectivity speeds
Enabling a reliable extended user experience, POCO F2 Pro packs a mighty punch with its massive 4,700mAh battery, surpassing the average user’s power needs even during heavy usage.
