- Mi 10 Pro.Now Xiaomi makes mobile phones of 1,000 euros
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S. Now available in Spain from 199 euros
Xiaomi has betrayed its philosophy of cheap and powerful mobile phones a bit with its latest phones in the Mi range. The Mi 10 cost practically the same as its main high-end competitors, the Galaxy S20 and the OnePlus 8.
However, with the Poco F2 Pro they can once again boast of achieving the highest characteristics of the most 'premium' range while containing the price to the limit. Although with the Poco F1 this was much more true, since it did not exceed 300 euros, it is not easy to get another mobile with a Snapdragon 865 processor for 499 euros or 549 euros. The price difference is due to RAM and storage space: 128GB and 6GB and 256GB and 8GB, respectively. Only the second model also has the fastest RAM (LPDDR5).
These prices, however, are only for launch. After May 15 (next Friday, in three days) they will start to cost 549 and 649 euros, respectively.
For that money, the mobile offers a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen and FHD + resolution, so it will be a large phone. It also has a 4,700mah battery, so given the Poco F2 Pro doesn't have a display with high-refresh technology, it should last more than a day of use. And if you run out of 'chicha', it has a 30W fast charge: in one hour it is 100% charged.
In the photographic section, the Poco F2 has four rear cameras and a front camera. This has 20 megapixels of resolution. It works through a mechanism that hides it inside the mobile, a concept very last year and that was abandoned in 2020 because the mechanism added a lot of weight to mobile phones.
At the rear are four lenses: a 64-megapixel primary, a 123-degree wide-angle, a 5-megapixel macro photography telephoto, and a 2-megapixel blur effects camera. The great absentee of the Poco would be the telephoto lens, that is, a lens with which to zoom.
Xiaomi promises that the Poco F2 Pro is capable of recording video in 8K resolution, albeit only at 24fps. However, 4K recording itself is 60fps.
It is also a mobile phone with 5G connectivity and WIFI 6, so it is up to date in terms of standards that guarantee that it does not stay old. As for age, fortunately it comes with Android 10 installed, so it also has the latest version of Android so far.
The Poco F2 was a mobile highly anticipated by Xiaomi fans, since it is always the one with the tightest price despite having the highest-end components. However, the difference between its price and the price of the competition this time is much smaller, so this could disappoint some.
