All the differences between the POCO
The new POCO F2 Pro presents us a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen and Full HD + resolution, but without a high refresh rate. It does have Gorilla Glass 5 and is compatible with HDR10 +. The original POCO, meanwhile, went on the market with a 6.18-inch IPS screen and Full HD + resolution. As you can see, here is the first big difference between both terminals.
Its design has nothing to do with it either, with the new POCO device the firm takes a big step forward. We say goodbye to the notch to meet a front entirely occupied by the screen. In case you were wondering, the front camera is housed in a pop-up system.
