Just over a few days after it was declared Independent brand, India phone maker Poco has officially confirmed the official launch date of its next smartphone. In line with previous reports, the Poco F2 isn’t launching yet, instead, the Xiaomi backed brand will first announce the Poco X2.
The brand has now confirmed via a tweet and a dedicated teaser page that the Poco X2 will be on February 4, 2020. While we are yet to be treated to a full render of the device, the brand went further to give out a few details of the upcoming device. Now, a number of these specs line up with those of the Redmi K30, which further fuels speculations that the X2 might just be a rebadged Redmi K30 for India.
First, off, the Poco X2 will with a 120Hz refresh rate. That means the device has a display that displays twice the number of images per second as an ordinary 60Hz display. That makes the device suitable for for “extreme gaming”.
Other than that, Poco India also revealed that the Poco X2 will come fitted with a 64MP camera with Sony IMX686 sensor, and assuming we are dealing with a rebadged Redmi K30, the X2 should get three other sensors – an 8MP ultrawide (120 degrees FOV), 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor modules.
The Poco X2 as per the official teaser will come with liquid cooling and a Qualcomm chipset at its helm. The exact chipset isn’t known yet, however, we expect the device to come packed with the SD 730G, given speculations that it will essentially be a rebranded Redmi K30 4G from China. That, however, remains what it is – mere speculations, and should be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt. We should be getting more official teaser in the days leading to the February 4th unveiling in India.
