The Poco X2 was supposed to be a groundbreaking launch after what the Pocophone did to the world of smartphones. With flagship specifications and a mid-tier pricing, the phone caught the attention of reviewers around the globe even though it was launched only in India. However, the newly launched device doesn’t seem to be designed to live up to the hype as it is more of a rebranded Redmi phone than a standalone device.
Priced at less than $400, the Poco X2 sports a fantastic display that can handle 120Hz refresh rate but it does sound great on paper even though the end product is more of the Redmi K30 4G model that is already available in China. The Xiaomi brand has severed ties with their Poco products and there was a solid year before the X2 was announced. It looks like the manufacturer want to bring it out so as to keep fans happy but the Pocophone 2 is not what was promised to be in many ways.
The Redmi K30 is not launched in India but is available only in China. If the new Poco X2 is a rebranded device, the company many choose to refrain from not launching it once again so as to avoid suspicion among buyers. The red colored variant is the best color variant of them all while the LCD display is acceptable considering how inexpensive this product is and the fluid refresh rate makes the phone look much faster than it actually can perform.
The fingerprint sensor is on the side and the phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor. The 64-megapixel Sony camera promises a lot and should be able to deliver with its new design, dual punch hole camera among other nifty features for a relatively low price. A full review should confirm whether it lives up to the name as the Poco X2 that buyers were looking forward to buy.
