The Poco X2 has now gone official after being teased for a few weeks, with a laundry list of specifications and an appealing low entry price point.
Recently, the company has gone completely alone and announced that this is not a direct follow-up to the Poco F1 and, as planned, is in fact just a rebranded Xiaomi Redmi K30. Which means the Poco X2 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 G chipset, 6 or 8 GB RAM, 64, 128 or 256 GB storage — though the storage is UFS 2.1. It will be coming to Android 10 with MIUI 11 on top.
There’s room for a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as well, and the battery measures in at 4,500mAh, charged by a fast 27W charger. Fans will also be pleased that the Poco X2 comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack and even includes liquid cooling technology— which Poco claims can dissipate heat 300% faster.
The Poco X2 sports a 20:9 RealityFlow 6.67-inch display with FHD+ resolution. The 120Hz refresh rate is the most impressive aspect, and it supports HDR 10 video. It also features a dual punch-hole notch that plays host to 20-megapixeland2-megapixel selfie cameras in the upper-right corner of the display.
For better portrait mode effects, the Poco X2 includes a quad-camera setup and relies on the 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 main camera,8-megapixel ultra-wide,2-megapixel macro lens, and2-megapixel depth sensor. It should also be noted that the Poco X2 is capable of recording slow-motion 960FPS videos and even provides a dedicated VLOG feature for the budding videographer.
Available in three colours: Atlantis Blue, Purple Matrix and Phönix Red. The Poco X2 is exclusive to India and will start at approximately $225 for the 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage option. You can double up the internal storage to 128 GB for $15. There’s also a premium model available for around $280 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
