[UPDATE] POCO F2 Pro announced in Malaysia for RM2199
The POCO F2 Pro has just been announced here in Malaysia. Priced from RM2199, the POCO F2 Pro is now officially the most affordable Snapdragon 865 smartphone available in Malaysia. It is also the first smartphone to sport UFS 3.1 in Malaysia, which is quite an interesting achievement for a brand that debuted as a way to get a flagship chipset at a mid-range’s price point.
All of that is cooled by a large 3435mm2 vapor chamber cooling system. Meanwhile keeping the lights on is an equally humongous 4700 mAh battery that supports 30W charging to juice up your battery quickly. In addition to the top-notch innards, the POCO F2 Pro also serves up a 64MP Sony IMX686 primary rear camera paired with a 5MP telephoto macro camera and a 13MP ultra-wide angle camera. And the selfie camera is installed on a popup module, allowing the POCO F2 Pro to offer a notchless, punch hole-less display.
The display is the main part where the POCO F2 Pro doesn’t really keep up with the 2020 flagships though. Most 2020 flagships today sport high refresh rate displays, but the POCO F2 Pro only sports a 60 Hz OLED panel. It’s still a huge upgrade over the POCOPHONE F1 though, which came with a lackluster LCD display. Well, at least it is unblemished by a selfie camera. In case you still haven’t seen the specifications of the POCO F2 Pro, here you go:
POCO F2 Pro Specs
- Snapdragon 865, octa-core up to 2.84 GHz, 7nm
- Up to 8GB LPDDR5 RAM
- Up to 256GB UFS 3.1 storage
- 6.67″ FHD+ AMOLED display, HDR10+, 1200-nits peak brightness
- 64MP f/1.89 Sony IMX 686 + 13MP f/2.4 ultra-wide + 5MP f/2.2 telemacro + 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor
- 20MP selfie camera
- 4700 mAh battery, 30W Fast Charging
- 6GB +128GB: RM2199
8GB + 256GB: RM2599
Malaysian availability of the POCO F2 Pro is set to commence on 10th June, which is a two-week wait from now. If you opt for the 8+256GB variant, you will even receive a free Blackshark Funcooler which is worth RM139 to further improve the thermals of the POCO F2 Pro.
[UPDATE]: POCO F2 Pro will be available for RM1999 during a Flash Sale
The POCO F2 Pro will be available during a flash sale on their debut sales this 10th June for just RM1999, so don’t miss out if you want to snag a great deal!
Pokdepinion: RM2199 seems like a pretty great price. Not as affordable as I expected, but not too bad either.
