Coming to specifications, the Redmi K30 Pro and Poco F2 Pro phones are pretty much identical. The dual-SIM (Nano) Poco F2 Pro runs on MIUI for POCO, based on Android 10, whereas Redmi K30 Pro runs on MIUI 11, based on Android 10. MIUI for POCO comes with its own Poco launcher, where MIUI 11 has MIUI launcher. The two phones feature a 6.67-inch full-HD (1,080×2,400) HDR10 AMOLED display with 20:9 aspect ratio.
Both the devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 octa-core SoC, paired with 6GB and 8GB RAM options. Storage options go up to 256GB, and there is no microSD card support for further expansion.
Coming to the camera, the Poco F2 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro phones have a quad rear camera setup that is headlined by the 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor, backed by OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation). Other three cameras on the Poco F2 Pro include a 5-megapixel telemacro camera, a 13-megapixel wide-angle snapper that offers a 123-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. On the other hand, Redmi K30 Pro packs a 5-megapixel macro camera, a 13-megapixel wide-angle snapper that offers a 123-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It is unclear whether the 5-megapixel macro camera in Redmi K30 Pro is the same as the 5-megapixel telemacro shooter in the Poco F2 Pro. Selfies on both phones are handled by a 20-megapixel pop-up front camera.
The duo also packs 4,700mAh battery inside that supports 33W fast charging. Connectivity options on the phone include dual-mode 5G (NSA SA), 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.1, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Both the phones are equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
