Will Xiaomi ever release its follow up to the Pocophone F1 soon? There is no definite answer yet but rumors persist this rumored flagship killer is likely the Pro version of the upcoming Redmi K20 that is set to get unpacked this week. And the details that leaked out so far point to the likelihood of the Pocophone F2 becoming a reality.

In the event of a twin release that carries the Redmi K20 label, Gadget 360 said Android fans can expect a nearly identical handsets save for what will be found inside. For the regular version, it is believed that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 730 SoC is the processing muscle of choice that will tap on 6GB or 8GB of RAM support. Both device models will retail boasting of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB of internal storage, the report added.

As indicated likewise in numerous reports, the Redmi K20 will be equipped with triple camera setup and the highlight of which is a 48MP rear sensor that will allow the recording of 960fps slow-motion video clips. For the selfie shooter, Xiaomi engineers have supposedly prepared a pop-up camera and that means the phone will have a gorgeous 6.39-inch full-screen AMOLED display panel, which will feature DC Dimming to reduce screen flickering and a 7th-generation in-display fingerprint sensor.

Juicing up everything on the Redmi K20 is a massive 4,000mAh battery that is designed to deliver up to 48 hours of battery life. If true, this is a clear giveaway that the device is intended for heavy use, specifically by mobile gaming fans.

Along this line, speculations are rife that the Redmi K20 Pro will eventually repackage as the gaming-centric Pocophone F2 and the device will be a beast in its own right, owing to the powerhouse Snapdragon 855 chip. This supposedly is the version that will hit the markets outside of China soon after the rollout that will follow the May 28 launch of the Redmi K20 line.

The K20 Pro, according to GSM Arena, is slated to sell starting at around $380, and the price tag is notably cheaper than the Xiaomi Mi 9. There is little argument that the pricing will make the K20 Pro a certified flagship killer, which is a character that Android fans have identified with the first Pocophone release.

If this will be the case, then there is reason to believe that a Pocophone F2 is coming out and it will be molded after the Redmi K20 Pro. When will this unfold remains a mystery but more clues are expected to be revealed in the aftermath of the handset's May 28 debut.
