The upcoming Poco X2 smartphone is confirmed to feature a 120 Hz RealityFlow display, and all the hints point it to be a rebadged Redmi K30 for the Indian market. Leaked images of the Poco X2 also seem to confirm a Redmi K30-esque design including the presence of a dual punch-hole front camera notch. The Poco X2 is all set to be officially released on February 4.

The Poco X2 is set to be the first smartphone from the company after it recently spun-off from Xiaomi to become independent. Poco has been mum about the exact specifications save for a few teasers, but we are now getting to learn more about the handset that is slated to launch on February 4. Overall, it appears to be a rebranded Redmi K30 for the Indian market. 

The Flipkart page for the Poco X2 confirms that it will feature a 120 Hz display, which the company calls a RealityFlow display, and it is expected to be a 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD panel. The Poco X2 will be powered by the Snapdragon 730G SoC, and will perhaps be the first smartphone to feature a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor. All hints so far point to a dual-camera setup and not a quad-camera one as seen in the Redmi K30. Also being touted is a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 4,500 mAh battery with fast-charging support. Poco is also likely to include a 27W fast charger in the box. 

The Poco X2 shares not only a lot of internal similarities with the Redmi K30, but the outer design as well. Images leaked by Techdroider on Twitter show a Poco branding on the phone and the presence of dual punch-hole front cameras towards the upper right corner of the display. The About page of the phone shows the model number as QGHINXM indicating that this could indeed be a Redmi K30 rehash

The Poco X2 looks to be more of a Realme X2 competitor than a true successor to the Poco F1. In any case, we are just a week away from confirming all the juicy details so stay tuned.
