When the Pocophone first launched, it was just viewed as another budget handset. But under the hood, the phone actually came with some pretty impressive hardware specs where it featured flagship components that you could find on any other flagship phone of 2018.
Heck, it even managed to survive nearly all the way to the end of a blind smartphone camera test conducted by popular tech YouTuber, MKBHD. Based on this, it’s not surprising that many are eagerly anticipating the launch of its successor.
The good news is that we won’t have to wait much longer because according to a tweet by the company’s Twitter account in India, they have confirmed that they will be hosting an event on the 4th of February, 2020 where the POCO X2 smartphone will be announced. It is unclear if the X2 will be the direct successor to the F1, but it does appear to come with some pretty interesting features.
For starters, it will apparently feature a display refresh rate of 120Hz, making it faster than the majority of smartphones out there. It will also come with a liquid cooling system, a dual camera setup, and a sizeable 4,500mAh battery. Some have speculated that the POCO X2 could be a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 4G.

If that’s true, then this handset will not sport a high-end chipset, but will instead use Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 730G SoC. In any case, we should have more details next week so check back for the official rundown.
