Redmi recently launched the Redmi K30 Pro 5G smartphone in China. The handset was accompanied by a camera-centric version called Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition. A recent report on XDA claimed that some findings in the MIUI camera of MIUI 11 suggested that the Redmi K30 Pro 5G may debut as POCO F2 in India. POCO India had recently held a community meeting with POCO fans to answer some of the queries. At the online meet, POCO India General Manager C Manmohan confirmed that the Redmi K30 Pro 5G won’t be coming to India as POCO F2.
This does not rule the probability that the Redmi K30 Pro won’t be selling as a POCO device. The XDA report had claimed that findings like “shot on POCO” revealed that the K30 Pro may end up as a POCO branded device. It never mentioned that it will be called POCO F2 or POCO F2 Pro.
C Manmohan said POCO fans shouldn’t be expecting the company’s flagship phone to cost around Rs. 20,000 ($265). The POCO F1 had debuted in 2018 as the cheapest Snapdragon 845 SoC phone with a pricing of around Rs. 20,000. Still, the POCO F1’s successor is believed to debut as the cheapest Snapdragon 865 SoC powered phone.
The executive confirmed that POCO is working on its version of truly wireless earbuds. However, he didn’t share any details on its features or release timeframe.
The company is currently focused on the sales of its recently announced POCO X2 phone. It’s a rebranded version of China’s Redmi K30 4G phone and it is selling in India with a starting price of 15,999 ($212).
