POCO F2 Pro price leaked ahead of launch, likely to be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro

Recently, POCO India GM C. Manmohan shot down rumours that the Redmi K30 Pro would be launched as the POCO F2 in the country. This was an obvious assumption, after the brand introduced the Redmi K30 as the POCO X2 (first impressions) in India. Recently, a Google Play Console listing revealed that while the handset might launch in some markets as POCO F2 Pro, that wouldn’t be the case for India.

Now, a new leak has tipped the estimated pricing and the variants of the POCO F2 Pro for European market. The latest leak comes from Portugal, where the pricing of smartphones is usually slightly higher than the rest of Europe. Here’s how much the upcoming POCO F2 Pro might cost.
