A dedicated website teasing the upcoming POCO X2 suggests the phone will have an “extreme refresh rate” display with a seamless touch response, a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with liquid cooling, and impressive battery life with high charging speeds.
The image showing the bottom of the phone seems to suggest the POCO X2 will be similar to the Redmi K30 that Xiaomi had announced last month. While it remains to be seen if the two phones will be identical in terms of tech specs, they are likely to be very similar in most areas. On the software front, the POCO X2 is expected to run “MIUI for POCO” out of the box, based on Android 10.
The Redmi K30 sports a 6.67-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, an 8nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, quad rear cameras with a 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor, and a large 4,500mAh battery with 27W fast charging.
