It's been a while since we last heard from Pocophone - the Pocophone F1 was launched in August 2018 in Malaysia, and ever since then Pocophone has been in the dark, even throughout 2019. Well, it's 2020 now and Pocophone fans have every reason to be excited as the Poco X2 has been officially announced, and it's set to launch very soon - next week even.
Poco has revealed a launch date through their very interesting teaser site - February 4 2020, which is next Tuesday for the launch of the device. So far this launch only applies to India. A Malaysian launch, or even a global one, has yet to be revealed but we should expect more info in the coming weeks or months.
Speaking of the teaser site, the Poco X2 seems to promise plenty, especially with a tagline of #SmoothAF, up until they have a website for you to check on out your mobile to insult you current smartphone screen's refresh rate. Thanks to this, you can look out for an extreme refresh rate for extreme gaming which can be further supported by a liquid cooling heatpipe, and will also pack in a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, though no word on which one yet.
You can also expect a USB-C charging setup, likely with some form of fast charging, and you will get the ever loved headphone jack as well. Most important to note on the teaser site is its reference to a high-resolution camera sensor. This is likely the IMX686, which is the same 64MP sensor that serves as the primary module on the Redmi K30, fueling rumours and the possibility that the Poco X2 is actually a repackaged Redmi K30 that's meant for a more global launch.
There's no word on the cost of the Poco X2 yet - it's likely only to be revealed during the launch. But after the assumption that the device is merely a rebrand of the Redmi K30, it's likely to cost around RM1200, though it all depends on which Snapdragon processor is packed in.
An Indian Tech Site called TechDroider has tweeted some leak photos of the device revealing a flat all-screen display with a punch hole camera on the top corner, while another image revealed that the device is running on IMUI 11.
