Poco X2 is here!
Xiaomi took the Indian market by storm by launching Poco F1 in 2018 as it was hands down one of the best value for money devices ever launched. People were expecting to hear about the successor in 2019, but that didn’t happen. There were rumors that the brand “Poco” has been demolished, which, when asked to the Xiaomi officials, termed it to be false.
It looks like the wait is finally over, and Poco has returned with not F1’s successor but a device named “X2”. The device is rumored to be a rebranded version of Redmi K30 4G. The brand sent media invites, and the launch will take place in Delhi. Flipkart has also teased info about the phone without revealing the technical specifications.
Poco X2 Specifications:
It is rumored to be a rebranded K30, and a Snapdragon 730G will power it. The display will have a higher refresh rate with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
The camera sensor will be a Sony IMX 686, which is a 64-megapixel shooter. The Poco India page also shows off a copper heat sink pipe for faster heat dissipation.
There is also a photo of the bottom of the device, which shows-off a USB type-c port, a microphone, a headphone jack, and the speaker grille.
The Poco X2 will be running Android 10 based on MIUI 11 out of the box. The battery is a mammoth 4500mAh, which, considering the high refresh rate display, doesn’t seem sufficient. The storage will probably be UFS-2.1, which, when paired with Snapdragon 730G, should be able to perform better.
There are rumored to be two front-facing cameras this time around, and both of them are embedded into a Samsung Galaxy S10+ like display cutout at the right. We don’t yet know if the Poco X2 will be a rebranded version of K30 4G, but considering what the rumors have to say, it could be true.
The fans were anticipating a successor of the Poco F1, and they might not be happy about waiting for some more time. In an interview, Ch. Manmohan, Poco’s General Manager, said they’re planning to bring more “Poco phones” in Q1-Q2 of 2020 so, stay tuned for that.
“Even though Poco is a different brand now, Xiaomi will still help them in the after-sales sector,” Manmohan added.
