As expected, Poco has officially launched its Poco X2 smartphone as an independent brand recently separated from Xiaomi. The partially leaked specifications have been confirmed, because it is actually a renamed Redmi K30, which is currently only available in China.
However, the Poco X2 is not a direct successor to the popular Pocophone F1 from the year before last, which came with very high-end hardware in an affordable case at a very good price-performance ratio, but is still a mid-range model very interesting price.
The Poco X2 has a 6.67-inch LC display with 120 Hz refresh rate (RealityFlow) and a FullHD + resolution in 20: 9 format and is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chip that was launched in April last year. This comes from the 8-nanometer production and consists of two “Kryo 470 Gold” high-end cores (ARM Cortex-A76) and six energy-efficient “Kryo 470 Silver” cores (Cortex-A55) plus Adreno 618 graphics unit. The “LiquidCool Technology” should keep the chip significantly cooler than conventional cell phones.
