Poco F2 Pro renders leak, and guess what? They look like a Redmi K30 Pro.

Poco exec: The Poco F2 Pro won't be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro. Renders: Am I a joke to you?

Although the Poco X2 was the first phone from Poco after the worldwide smash Poco F1, it wasn’t a true follow-up. Now, though, we are nearly certain that the Poco F2 Pro will launch tomorrow as the true successor to the ultra-cheap, ultra-powerful Poco F1.

Now, we have some leaked renders of the F2 Pro (via Ishan Agarwal). The renders only show us the front of the device, but we can tell quite a bit just from the display and bezels.

First off, the front of this phone looks nigh identical to the Redmi K30 Pro. All data we have suggests that Poco — a sub-brand of Xiaomi — is simply taking the design from Redmi (yet another Xiaomi sub-brand) and repackaging it. However, a Poco exec claimed that that was not the case, so we don’t know what to think.

Below is the Redmi K30 Pro. Decide for yourself what to believe:

4 Redmi K30 Pro colors

Note how the bottom bezel and the speaker cutout at the top of the display pretty much line up perfectly with the Poco F2 Pro renders. Also, you can clearly see a red power button on the F2 Pro renders, just like on the K30 Pro.

The four renders of the F2 Pro also show four different colorways. It’s hard to see, but if you look closely you can spot (from left to right) gray/black, purple, white, and blue. I mean, that is even the same order as the renders above for the K30 Pro!

In other words, we’re not sure what that Poco exec was trying to pull, but we are nearly certain that the Poco F2 Pro will look identical to the Redmi K30 Pro and share many of the same specs. We’ll find out tomorrow for certain, though.
