A year and a half after the launch of the Pocophone F1, a device that has registered considerable success in several markets for delivering cutting-edge specifications and interesting price, Poco has made its second smartphone official: the Poco X2, which is basically a Redmi K30 with another name.
This device, which measures 165.3 x 76.6 x 8.8 mm and weighs 208 grams, has a 6.67 "IPS LCD display with 2400 x 1080 pixel resolution, HDR10, supporting 120 Hz refresh rate and glass with Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
Inside, we have the 8nm Snapdragon 730G processor, combined with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage (expandable via microSD up to 256GB).
In the camera department, there are four sensors at the rear, the main one being the 64MP Sony IMX686, the 8MP wide angle secondary with 120 degree field of view, the 2MP macro tertiary and the 2MP depth quaternary. The pillar-shaped "hole" positioned in the upper right corner of the screen houses two cameras, which add up to 20MP + 2MP. The Poco X2 also features support for RAW image, 4K video recording at 30fps and slow motion at 960fps.
To keep the smartphone on, Xiaomi inserted a 4,500 mAh battery with a fast 30W charge. In software, MIUI 11 based on Android 10 is factory installed. To prevent overheating during games, there is a liquid cooling technology.
Other features include: Dual-SIM, 802.11ac WiFi, VoWiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, infrared sensor, GPS, USB Type-C port and 3.5 mm headphone jack. As a security feature, we have a fingerprint reader on the side.
