Poco X2 release date
Poco X2 price and where to buy
Unlike the Pocophone F1, the X2 is exclusive to Flipkart in India. It costs just ₹15,999 which converts to around £175 or $225.
That’s cheaper than the £329 F1, but we’re not sure if the phone will make it to markets other than India.
That starting price will get you a model with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. You can then jump to 128GB storage for ₹16,999 and then a top spec of 8/256GB for ₹19,999.
Poco X2 specs and features
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. The OnePlus 8 is highly unlikely to be lower.
The display is 6.67in and uses a Full HD+ resolution. It’s an LCD panel and has dual in-screen cameras similar to the Galaxy S10 Plus. They are 20- and 2Mp.
On the back is a quad camera array featuring a 64Mp Sony IMX686 sensor which offers an f/1.89 aperture. This is accompanied by 2Mp macro, 8Mp ultra-wide and 2Mp depth cameras.
Those are perhaps the highlights but the Poco X2 has other features such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G quad-core processor that’s liquid cooled and, as per the models listed above, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
It might not support 5G, but the X2 offers a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 4700mAh battery and 27W fast charging over USB-C. It also has Bluetooth 5.0 and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The handset comes in three colours: Phoenix Red, Atlantis Blue, and Matrix Purple.
Here’s are the Poco X2 specs in a nutshell:
- 6.67in Full HD+ LCD display, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10
