According to the tweet made by Poco India, it seems that the Poco X2 might pack a higher refresh rate for the display. The dedicated webpage confirms that a top-end Qualcomm Processor, liquid cooling, and a better camera sensor would be among some of the Poco X2 specs. It also confirms USB Type-C connectivity and a 3.5 headphone jack to be present.
Poco X2 specs include 8 GB RAM and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with clock speeds of 1.8 GHz as well. The Poco X2 will be running on Android 10 out of the box. Poco X2 specs and Geekbench scores seem to be similar to the Redmi K30 that launched sometime earlier, hinting towards the possibility of Poco X2 being an enhanced variant of the Redmi smartphone.
According to reports by leading technology portals, Poco is also developing a Poco F2 Lite with mid-range specs such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor. It is rumoured to pack in a 5000 mAh battery underneath and come with a U-shaped notch for the front camera. The Poco F2 and F2 lite could run Xiaomi's Miui on top of Android.
