There has been a lot of buzz around the successor of the Poco F1. Fans have been asking about it, while the internet is flooded with leaks and rumours. Earlier this year the company did some scrambling and launched the Poco X2, a rebranded version of the Redmi K30. Now there were rumours that the company would bring the Redmi K30 Pro, the real flagship, to India as the Poco F2. But it seems that the company has other plans.
According to a report, the Redmi K30 Pro could go on to be called the Poco F2 Pro. The info was spotted by XDA Developers that cites a Google Play device listing suggesting that the Redmi K30 Pro and the Poco F2 Pro have similar codenames. However, they will launch under different branding depending on the region. The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition which was launched with the Redmi K30 Pro might also launch in India.
