So, Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Poco has finally launched its second phone, the Poco X2. If you recall correctly, the last Poco smartphone which was the Poco F1 came out about at least one and a half years ago. After that, the independent company Poco went underground and came back with this powerful Poco X2.
Poco X2 is another powerful smartphone offered by Poco which gives you high performance at a mid-range cost.
Poco X2 Features:
The X2 and Redmi K30 share almost similar specifications which are why we are calling it a rebranded K30. In 2019, Poco said that they didn’t want to launch another smartphone. But now, the brand stands alone much like Redmi.
Poco X2 has a 3D curved glass body with a dimension of 165.3 x 76.6 x 8.8 mm. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 (16.94 cm) which is quite good. The weight balance on the Poco X2 is really impressive. The device weighs 208 grams.
The biggest highlight of the device is the 120Hz refresh rate display. It is the first smartphone to offer this type of refresh rate in this price range. Poco has really gone up ahead in the game with this step.
Moreover, it comes with a 6.67-inch FHD+ HDR10 IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 400. The per-pixel inch (PPI) of this smartphone is 395. The display also comes with the protection of the Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Poco X2 is powered by Octa-core (2.2 GHz, Dual-core, Kryo 470 + 1.8 GHz, Hexa Core, Kryo 470) processor. It runs on the Qualcomm SnapDragon 730G SoC which comes with the Liquid Cool technology.
The camera setup on the device is really splendid. It is the first smartphone in India to feature Sony’s new 64 Megapixel IMX686 sensor which is the successor to Sony’s 48 Megapixel IMX586.
On the front, there is a 20 Megapixel selfie camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor shaped in hole-punch display cutout.
On the rear, Poco X2 has a 64-megapixel IMX686 sensor with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
