Poco X2 launched for Rs 15,999 : Check specifications, features, availability details

As the firm said ahead of the launch, the Poco X2 comes with a display refresh rate of 120Hz and as far as we're aware, it's the cheapest phone on the market to come with this tech. In fact, it's one of the myriads of sub-brands.

This is due to the fact that the POCO X2 is merely a rebrand of Redmi K30 that was launched in China past year. The smartphone comes as a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 4G, that was launched late a year ago in China.

The Poco X2 houses a big 4,500mAh battery with support for 27W fast charging over USB Type-C, with the charger included in the box. The Poco X2 looks like it could be the best value smartphone of 2020 with an unbelievable set of specs for a modest price. The phone comes in Atlantis Blue, Matrix Purple, and Phoenix Red colour options and will go on sale through Flipkart Its first sale will take place at 12pm (noon) IST on Tuesday, February 11. There's a 64/8/2/2-megapixel camera on the back, and a 20/2-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

On the other hand, the Realme X2 is equipped with a standard design language. The smartphone design is identical to the Realme XT. It's called Poco X2, but it's not almost as exciting as the first Poco phone. So, if we need to pick up a victor here, it will be Poco X2 as it has something different to offer in terms of design. Its full HD LCD screen is HDR 10-enabled and measures 6.67 inches diagonally. This handset uses a 6.67-inch 120Hz dual-hole full-screen. The competition is quite tough here. Not just that, the panel also has a refresh rate of 120Hz, a feature that is pretty rare in this price segment and is sure to make the phone feel a lot smoother in day-to-day usage. Furthermore, the 120Hz refresh rate is still yet to be adopted by developers, meaning that most of the time, you will end with apps that only support 60fps. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G mobile platform, which is paired with an LPDDR4X memory and UFS 2.1 flash storage. Both of them are available with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.

Around the back, the Poco X2 has a quad camera setup, which is a combination of a 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor units. There is a dual lens front camera of 20MP+2MP for selfies. The nearly identical setups are separated only by the Sony IMX686 sensor on the Poco and the Samsung GW1 sensor on the Realme.

The rest of the features of the Poco X2 include an IR Blaster, P2i water-repellent coating, VoWiFi, and Hi-Res Sound. Also, Nextbit that was later acquired by Razer had used it in Robin.
