Xiaomi spin-off brand Poco, which came out on Monday, is going to be Poco X2. While it was previously speculated that Poco would release the successor to the brand’s first smartphone, the Poco F1, as the Poco F2, the company decided to switch it up a bit. The Poco F2 is still an extension but is now rumored to come out later this year and could be the true successor to the Poco F1. All indications now indicate that the Poco X2 is going to be a rebranded version of the Redmi K30, though we’ll still have to wait for Poco to reveal everything about the phone. Read further for more information about Poco X2, which is official and unofficial right now.
Poco X2 launch date
Poco India has announced that it is booking a press event on 4 February where it will unveil the Poco X2. The launch event will take place in New Delhi and will take place at 12 noon. It is likely to be streamed live on YouTube and other social media channels. As always, we will be present at the launch event to bring you all in front of them.
Poco X2 Price in India (Expected)
Though nothing has been said to Poco India about the price of Poco X2 in the country, but the Redmi K30 4G version of the phone is expected to be a rebranded version, the China pricing of the Redmi phone may give us a good idea. Redmi K30 4G has been launched for the base 6GB + 64GB model at CNY 1,599 (about Rs 16,500). The 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB models of the phone have been offered with CNY 1,699 (around Rs 17,500), CNY 1,899 (around Rs 19,600) and CNY 2,699 (around Rs 22,700) respectively.
So, if Poco India ends up bringing all four variants of the Redmi K30 to India, then we can expect pricing as the Poco X2. 17,000 and Rs. 23,000. Furthermore, as Flipkart has set up a microsite for the phone, we can expect it to retail the Poco X2 in India with Mi.com, Mi Home stores and partner Xiaomi retailers.
The Poco X2 sale date remains a mystery, but it shouldn’t take too long to show the phone up for flash sale.
Poco X2 Specifications (Confirmed)
Since Poco has already started teasing Poco X2 in India, we already have many specifications of the phone. First of all, Poco has revealed that the Poco X2 will have a display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Additionally, teaser paints posted by the company indicate the presence of a side-mounted plate size, USB Type-C port and 3.5mm audio jack. Liquid cooling support has also been teased and the company has also noted the presence of a Qualcomm Trandagon chip.
Poco x2 specifications (expected)
In terms of unconfirmed specifications, based on the indication that the Poco X2 is a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 4G variant, we expect the Tridagon 730G SoC, a 6.7-inch full-HD + display with dual Hole-punch selfie camera and 20: 9 aspect ratio. The selfie camera volunteer is likely to include a 20-megapixel Excel and 2-megapixel Excel image sensor.
The rear camera volunteer is expected to include four shooters – 64-megapixel Excel + 2-megapixel Excel + 2-megapixel Excel + 8-megapixel Excel. Additionally, a 4,500mAh battery with 27500 fast charging support, NFC and IR blaster are also likely to be featured in the Poco P2.
