It's a Redmi K30 in disguise

It appears that earlier leaks were spot on as Poco has just announced its latest Poco X2 smartphone in India, and this Redmi K30 clone seems to be a worthy successor to the Poco F1 (Pocophone F1).

As rumored earlier, the Poco X2 is a re-branded K30 which is currently available in China and comes powered by the same Snapdragon 730G SoC, with an octa-core CPU part (two 2.2GHz Kryo 470 and six 1.8GHz Kryo 470 cores) and Adreno 618 GPU. Although liquid-cooled in the Poco X2, the Snapdragon 730G is an entry-level gaming-oriented GPU from Qualcomm but don't expect plenty of Snapdragon Elite Gaming features.

The Snapdragon 730G SoC is paired up with 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

According to a Flipkart listing, where the phone will be available, the Poco X2 measures at 165.3x76.6x8.79mm and weighs 208g, which is not half bad for a phone with a 6.67-inch screen, 3d curved Gorilla Glass 5 back, and hefty 4500mAh battery. The FHD+ (2400x1080) resolution display is a 2:9 RealityFlow one with 120Hz refresh rate, HDR 10 support, and comes with a hole for two cameras in the top-right part of the screen, housing 20MP+2MP selfie cameras.

The main rear camera has a main 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor paired up with 8-megapixel 120-degree ultra-wide, and two 2-megapixel sensors, one for macro and the other for depth.

As noted, there is a 4,500mAh battery with 27W fast charging. It runs on MIUI 11 OS on top of Android 10 OS. 

Poco X2  starting price will be Rs 15,999 ($225) for the base 6GB+64GB version. The 6GB+128GB version is priced at Rs 16,999 ($240), and the premium 8GB+256GB version will sell for Rs 19,999 ($281). It will be available in Atlantis Blue, Matrix Purple, and Phoenix Red color options and will sell at

There is no word if the Poco X2 will ever be available outside of India, and, unfortunately, there is no word on the possible successor to the Poco F1.
