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.
