While we don’t know much about the upcoming Poco X2, rumours floating around the internet suggest that the phone will not be a flagship killer like the Poco F1 was. Instead, it’s expected to be powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 730G Mobile Platform. A leaked Geekbench listing for the phone also suggests that the Poco X2 will come with 8GB of RAM, and run Android 10 out of the box.
That said, if you were looking forward to a flagship Poco smartphone, there’s still hope. In an interview with Gadgets 360, Poco India’s General Manager C Manmohan didn’t completely refute reports suggesting that the company might launch multiple phones this year. Hopefully, we’ll get to see a Poco branded smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 SoC as well, but that’s news for another day. As of right now, it’s gr eat that Poco has finally confirmed that its next smartphone is coming, and coming very soon. February 4 is right around the corner, and we’ll definitely be covering the launch as it happens so stay tuned.
