Xiaomi’s sub-brand smartphone Pocophone F1 was a popular flagship killer when it was released a couple of years ago. Not only the Poco F1 was a flagship killer, the smartphone was also a budget-friendly. It was the only affordable handset phone to offer flagship-tier specifications in the $300 range. The Poco F1 is still an outstanding smartphone today and can be purchased for as little as $200. Poco fans have been looking forward to the second-generation F2 for quite some time now.
A few alleged Poco X2 benchmark scores emerged over the worldwide web, but they unexpectedly all turned out to be a flops. Just recently, Xiaomi have decided to make Poco an independent brand and the world will finally got to see its first smartphone since its separation from Xiaomi. Rumored as the Poco X2, the device is set to release on February 3, 2020.
The Poco X2 features a 120Hz refresh rate display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC and more.
Unlike the Pocophone F1, the Poco X2 will not be powered a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8xx series SoC. Instead, the company opt to incorporate a slightly less expensive and less powerful Snapdragon 730G processor. It shouldn’t be too much of a limitation, given that the other specification and features the Poco X2 offers.
The device will be equipped a 6.67-inch LCD screen display with a 120Hz refresh rate, as seen in a teaser posted by Poco itself on Twitter.
Camera-wise, the Poco X2’s camera system could likely include a 64 MP Sony IMX686 as its main shooter assisted by and 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP and a 5MP for portrait and macro, respectively. The dual-selfie camera setup has one 20MP and a 2MP sensors. A 120Hz screen will require more battery juices, so we could be looking at a 4,500 mAh battery capacity.
Poco X2’s entry-level model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM will be available for Rs 18,999 (~$270.)
