While it was initially speculated to bring the Poco F2 as its next smartphone - after the Poco F1, Poco India ultimately brought the Poco X2 as its latest offering. While there was no mention of the Poco F2's existence, the X2 aims to replicate the same success in the sub Rs 20,000 segment.

The Poco F1 (aka Pocophone F1 outside India) announced back in August 2018 was an instant hit - thanks to the flagship-grade hardware offered at an aggressive price. It was so well-received that fans and consumers spent all of 2019 waiting for a successor which never came. Nothing particularly wrong with that, but it deserved mention in case you wanted to know how "independent" Poco was going forward with its operations.

The POCO X2 is powered by a Snapdragon 730G octa-core processor, paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of expandable storage. Poco X2 also comes with "liquid cool" technology to avoid heating of the phone during heavy usage, say, when gaming. To sustain peak performance, there's also a LiquidCool heat sink, which is supposed to improve heat dissipation by 300%. In terms of battery, the Poco X2 is loaded with a 4500mAh battery with 27W fast charging support.

In the camera department, the smartphone features a quad rear camera a setup that includes a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor, 2 MP depth sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide angle camera, and a 2 MP macro camera. The phone also has a dual selfie camera setup at the front that consists of 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. However as some of you might have noticed, it is not an altogether new smartphone.

In terms of design, the Poco X2 opts for a glass sandwich design with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back. The phone uses a USB Type C port for charging and data transfer.

Moreover, it houses a side-mounted fingerprint reader for secure biometric authentication. The phone is P2i splash-resistant.

It is available in three colour options - Atlantis Blue, Phoenix Red, Matrix Purple.

Revealing a higher refresh rate in the newly launched Poco X2, the Chinese smartphone maker will release multiple phones this year, and those later launched under the X series are expected to be affordable smartphones.

Notably, buyers can also avail a discount of Rs. 1,000 on payments using ICICI Bank cards.
