Xiaomi’s Pocophone sub-brand has a new device coming soon and recently some details have come out ahead of the official reveal.
The official Poco India account on Twitter has confirmed that a new device called the Poco X2 will be announced on February 4th. Teasers for the device confirm that it’ll have a RealityFlow 120Hz display — which means a 120Hz high refresh rate — as well as fast charging and an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
And then there are the rumors. First up, some hands-on images of the Poco X2 have surfaced that purportedly show the front of the device. The photos shared by TechDroider on Twitter include a hole-punch in the upper right corner of the screen with two front cameras.
A separate photo from Mincu Andrei on Twitter claims to show the Poco X2 running the AnTuTu benchmark app. It lists the processor as an SM7150, which could be either a Snapdragon 730 or 730G.

A few more Poco X2 specs may have been leaked in a promotional image. Shared by Hindustan Times, the image purportedly shows the Poco X2 with a USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom of the device, a chin at the bottom of the screen, a dual camera hole-punch in the upper right corner of the display, and four rear cameras.
Those four rear cameras could include a 64MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP portrait cam, and a 5MP macro camera. The report also claims that the dual front cameras could be 20MP and 2MP sensors. Finally, the display is said to measure in at 6.67 inches.
The Poco F1 that launched in 2018 was all about offering flagship-tier specs at an aggressive price. It included a Snapdragon 845, 6.18-inch screen, up to 8GB of RAM, and dual rear cameras, and it started at around $300.
It seems likely that the Poco X2 will continue this focus on high-end specs at a not-so-high-end price. Rumors say that the X2 could start at Rs. 18,999, or around $265. The good news is that the official Poco X2 reveal is just five days away, so it won’t be long before all is made official.
