POCO F2 Launch Date and Review
POCO F2 launch date is not finalized yet, but we do know that it is going to be launched soon. After the launch of POCO X2 on 4 February 2020 at a live event on YouTube, we already came to know that POCO has become an independent company. However, somehow, it is still associated with Xiaomi, which we will discuss later.
Well, I have been using Poco F1 since its launch. The best thing about this device is the hardware that is being offered at such a price. I purchased it for 300$ only while big companies like OnePlus and others are charging more than 500$ for the same specifications.
Although the company has become independent, they have also changed the color of the logo. However, they will still launch the new Poco F2 with MIUI 11 as we have seen it on POCO X2, which is a big drawback as many users wanted a close to Stock UI Android operating system. Nevertheless, we have a solution for that always with the help of custom ROMs that lets you install a stock UI operating system for your Poco.
We are sharing the specifications of Redmi K30 Pro as POCO F2 specifications. Based on the rumors of POCO X2, which was believed to be the rebranded model of Redmi K30 and the stories came true. We do think that POCO F2 will be the rebranded model of Xiaomi’s Redmi K30 Pro.

We expect an AMOLED display, but we are not sure about it until the POCO F2 Launch date is confirmed.
