Ever since Poco announced its plans to become an independent brand, its fans were excited for the launch of the much-awaited Poco F1 successor. It went on to announce Poco X2 which is essentially a Redmi K30 rebranded version which left Poco F1 fan slightly disappointed. But as per a new report, it seems like Poco F2 is finally getting closer to an official release.
As per XDA folks, Redmi K30 Pro is the smartphone that will be released as a rebranded Poco smartphone. The exact model number is unknown but is speculated to be the Poco F2. The report is based on MIUI 11 source code spotted by kacskrz, an XDA Junior Member. The code was specifically spotted in the MIUI 11 beta camera app.
The Redmi K30 Pro has a codename "lmi" but the folks spotted another device code "lmiin". It is expected to be an Indian variant of the smartphone. The camera app code further showed that photos clicked with the phone will have a "Shot with Poco" watermark by default. This suggests that the Indian launch of the phone will be under the Poco brand.
It is worth mentioning that these are only speculations for the time being. There is no surety if this will actually turn out to be true or even if it does, then the phone will be named Poco F2. We will suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt until more credible proof emerge.
