After waiting for more than a year, we now have a launch date for a second POCO phone. No, this is not the POCO F2 but the POCO X2! Yeah, we know there is no POCO X1 but there also isn’t a Redmi K10.
The announcement comes via the official POCO Twitter account, and according to the tweet, the POCO X2 arrives next week, Tuesday, February 4, 2020.

In anticipation of the device’s launch, POCO has created the hashtags #SmoothAF and #POCOX2. The former is actually a hint to one of the phone’s features which is its high refresh rate.
Along with the tweet is also a URL to a page where you can check if your device is “Smooth AF”.
If you click on the link, it takes you to a page that automatically detects the refresh rate of your device. You get something like the image above if you visit it on your PC. However, opening the link on your mobile results in the second image below. Yeah, thanks POCO for reminding me my phone is due for an upgrade!
The POCO X2 will have a display with a high refresh rate and since the phone is a rebranded Redmi K30, it means it has a 120Hz refresh rate.
POCO has also teased the phone will come with a Sony IMX686 (64MP) main camera and will have 6 cameras in total (four quad cameras and a dual front-facing camera).
The teaser page also reveals the POCO X2 will have a Snapdragon processor (Snapdragon 730G) inside, liquid cooling, and fast charging. An image of the bottom of the phone further confirms it is a rebranded Redmi K30. Below is the bottom of the POCO X2 (left) alongside that of the Redmi K30 (right). And of course, we now know it will come in gold.
The launch event is scheduled for 12 noon on February 4 but there is no info regarding the venue. However, we expect there will be a livestream too.
