After much teasing, the Poco X2 has finally launched in India and as expected it's merely a rebrand of the Redmi K30 that's currently being sold in China. A bit of a bummer for Pocophone fans who're expecting something completely new.
The highlight of the device is the 6.67" 20:9 RealityFlow display of FullHD+ resolution which comes with a refresh rate of 120Hz and supports HDR 10. This is slightly marred by a pill-shaped hole in the top-right corner for the 20MP and 2MP selfie cameras.
In terms of the rear camera, the device offers a 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor camera. For other specs, the smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 730G SoC, runs MIUI 11 out of the box, and comes in three memory configurations - 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB.
It will also have a side-mounted fingerprint reader and comes with a 4,500 mAh battery that draws power through a USB-C port at up to 27W. There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack and features liquid cool technology, which Poco claims can dissipate heat 300% faster.
In India, the 6GB/64GB version is priced at INR15,999 (~RM920) and for another INR1,000 (~RM99) you can get the 128GB version. The 8GB/256GB version is being sold at INR19,999 (~RM1155). Overall, if you're into great screens, this is the best price so far. The Poco X2 comes in three colors - Atlantis Blue, Matrix Purple, and Phoenix Red.
