By seeing the massive success of the Poco F1 in 2018, Xiaomi is all set to launch its successor on 4th February 2020, however soon after the conference invite the compnay has pulled it back which shows the date is not yet fixed, yet we can expect it to be in February for sure.
Even though it is going to be the successor to Poco F1, instead of being Poco F2, it will come with the name Poco X2, possibly to mark the beginning of a new series of handsets. The Poco X2 is expected to be the rebranded version of the Redmi K30 4G, and it will come with all the bells and whistles to be at least close to the latest flagships that are scheduled to be released in 2020 by other major brands.
The Poco X2 will is expected to run Android 10, the latest version of Android, out of the box, and it will come with a 120 Hertz refresh rate, instead of just 60-90 Hertz that was mainstream, even in the flagships that were launched in 2019. The extreme refresh rate and seamless touch response are the two biggest improvements that will be observed in the Poco X2, and they are really notable improvements that will deliver even better performance while gaming or carrying our any type of graphics-intensive tasks.
The Poco X2 is expected to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which is a mid to high-end SoC, optimized for gaming. The 730G SoC comes with Adreno 618 GPU that offers significantly faster frame rendering than its predecessor. Just like most other flagships, the Poco X2 will also come with the USB Type-C port, and the cherry on the pie is, the availability of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Coming to the camera, the handset will come with a quad-rear camera setup having 64+2+8+2 MP and a dual-selfie camera with 20+2 MP, and it will come with the modern hole-punch display design. So, the Poco X2 is also going to deliver better photography, as the specs on paper will be able to capture finer details.
It is expected to be the rebranded version of the K30 4G, as the physical appearance of the Poco X2 and the K30 4G is almost the same. The Poco X2 is expected to be available right from the day of launch, and you can order it on Flipkart after it is made available. Even though there is no information yet about the pricing, if the handset is priced at around Rs. 20,000, it is really going to be a bang for the buck. The handset will also run the MIUI for Poco on top of Android 10 like it was in the Poco F1.
Talking about the other aspects, the Poco X2 is also expected to come equipped with liquid cooling and should also support very fast charging speeds. As per the company, there are more handsets in the pipeline, which are expected to launch shortly after the Poco X2 launch, maybe in the next few months. I am really excited to see the 120 Hertz refresh rate on a medium to a high-end smartphone without even a Snapdragon 800 series SoC. What are your thoughts about the Poco X2?
