[Watch Live] Xiaomi sequel POCO as an independent brand; POCO X2 Launching on Feb 4th

As we are aware of the recent news about Xiaomi sequel POCO as an independent brand under it. From the past years, the devices that Xiaomi produced seem like it’s an automobile company hahaha…. whose merchandises are: Redmi, Poco, Mito, CC, Black Shark, the list continues.

Only one phone was ever released under the Poco name, the wildly-successful Poco F1, which was developed by Xiaomi. But, recently Poco India announced that POCO India is launching #POCOX2 on Feb 4th, 12 PM at an event in New Delhi & yes it’s 120 Hz Display as they say Extreme Refresh Rate & Extreme Gaming.

POCO has already gone leading and anchored up a website announcing the launch, which reveals a few key details about the upcoming smartphone. As per the website, the POCO X2 will emphasize a high refresh rate display, liquid cooling, and, most likely, a Sony IMX 686 primary sensor (as suggested in the image below).

Furthermore, the charging render on the website shows another headphone jack at the bottom, which establishes that the beginning render might just be an effort to grip the POCO X2’s design under the cover. Unless POCO plans to double down on bringing back the headphone jack, quite accurately. We doubt that the POCO X2 is nothing but a rebranded Redmi K30 4G, which was released in China last year. See the images below that adds more hints to you, as it looks exactly like that of the Redmi K30 4G.

Here we don’t know much about the upcoming mid-range flagship killer phone Poco X2, the rumors hovering throughout the internet hint that it is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 730G. And it will come with 8GB of RAM, and run Android 10.

The announcement didn’t unveil how the new company would be structured, and how much independence Poco would have. Xiaomi revolved its Redmi brand a year ago in this same style (only in China), but devices from the two companies remain either closely related or are simple rebrands. OnePlus and its parent company Oppo function in much the corresponding way: new Oppo phones usually give hints about what the next OnePlus device will look like.

There are unquestionably flood of people interested in seeing a Poco X2, but with Poco supposedly now in charge of its market research, it remains to be seen if a sequel phone would have the same killer price as the F1.

The Poco F1 created quite an impression on the market when it was released back in August 2018. It was the only sub $300 smartphone that ran Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC. It truly redefined the idea of an affordable flagship, and as a result, sold fairly well. Despite its age, the Poco F1 is still an outstanding device in 2020 also, plus you can pick it up for about $200.
