Hardware specs

The Poco F2 Pro comes with a 6.67″ Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate and it runs on a Snapdragon 865 platform. It uses high-performance LPDDR5 RAM (LPDDR4x for 6GB RAM version) and UFS 3.1 storage but it doesn’t come with a microSD expansion slot.

Since it has a full edge to edge screen without notches or punch hole, the F2 Pro comes with a 20MP pop-up selfie camera which is similar to the Mi 9T series. At the rear, it gets a Huawei Mate 30-inspired quad-camera bump that has a 64MP main camera, an 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro shooter and a 2MP depth camera.

Powering the device is a large 4,700mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging via USB-C. A full charge can be completed in just 63 minutes. Also included is a fan-favourite 3.5mm headphone jack, an IR blaster and NFC support. The device also supports WiFi 6 and 5G as certified recently by SIRIM.
