Poco X2 will launch in India on February 4. Here’s what to know about the Poco’s comeback phone.
Poco is gearing up for a big comeback in the Indian smartphone space with Poco X2. It will be just second smartphone from Poco which debuted in August 2018 with Poco F1. Earlier this year, Poco separated from Xiaomi to become an independent brand. Ahead of the Poco X2 launch, Poco has already confirmed a few features of the upcoming flagship phone. Let's take a look.
We reported last week that Poco X2's 6GB and 64GB variant will be priced at ₹18,999. It's likely the phone will be available in more variants. Considering the ₹18,999 is price for the base model, Poco X2 seems to be targeted at the same top-tier mid-range smartphone segment. The phone is confirmed to be available online via Flipkart.
Another big takeaway from our report on Poco X2 was the camera. Poco X2 will have as many as four rear cameras including a 64-megapixel sensor. The smartphone will come with a newer Sony IMX686 sensor. The front will have dual punch-hole cameras.
As seen in several leaks, Poco X2 has an edge-to-edge display. Already, Poco has confirmed it will come with 120Hz refresh rate. Considering the leaked price, Poco X2 is set to be the cheapest phone to offer the 120Hz refresh display.
Poco X2 was recently spotted on Geekbench benchmarking website. The leak revealed an octa-core processor, Android 10, and 6GB of RAM. For battery, Poco has confirmed it will ship with a 27W fast charging. Other things you will get are 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C port.
