POCO will announce its second smartphones on February 4, but it won’t be the POCO F2 / Pocophone F2. The company is planning to announce the POCO X2 in India.
This smartphone got teased by the company, as the company promises an ‘extreme refresh rate’. Now, this refers to the display refresh rate, of course, and it’s likely 120Hz. We’re only guessing, though.
In addition to that, one of the company’s teasers confirmed that the phone will include Sony’s IMX686 camera sensor. That is a 64-megapixel 1/1.7”sensor, and in addition to that, the phone will include a secondary sensor on the back.
The POCO X2 coming on February 4 with a Snapdragon processor
The device will be fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, but we don’t know which one at this point. Liquid cooling will also be included, the company’s teasers claim.
POCO’s teasers also seem to suggest that this phone will include a pop-up selfie camera. A rear-facing fingerprint scanner will also be a part of the package, it seems.
We’re expecting this phone to include an LCD display, but we’ll see what will happen. Fast charging will be included in the package, and that will be achievable via a Type-C USB port.
A bottom-firing loudspeaker will be a part of the package, and the same goes for a 3.5mm headphone jack. This phone will probably be made out of polycarbonate (plastic), but nothing has been confirmed just yet.
As you can see, POCO confirmed quite a few features / specs for the X2. This phone does come as a surprise, as everyone expected a POCO F series smartphone to arrive.
It will become the second POCO-branded smartphone
The POCO X2 will be the first POCO-branded smartphone to launch since August 2018, and it is coming on February 4. This will clearly be a mid-range smartphone, and you can expect it to be quite affordable.
We’re not sure if the device will reach global markets, but if that ends up happening, it will probably be called the Pocophone X2. The POCO F1 was rebranded to the Pocophone F1, that’s why that’s likely to happen with this X series phone as well.
The POCO F2 / Pocophone F2 will probably become official in the near future as well. We’re expecting both the POCO F2 and F2 Lite to arrive. POCO is expected to announce three devices in the near future, and those three are likely coming.
The POCO F2 will probably become the company’s new flagship, and a direct successor to the POCO F1. That device is expected to include the Snapdragon 865 on the inside, along with other top-of-the-line specifications. The device is expected to be quite affordable, though, the same as its predecessor. We do not have any other info about the device at this point, though, other than it could be a rebranded Redmi K30.
