At the close of December 2019, Xiaomi Pocophone Global Head Alvin Tse had released a tweet that hinted a new Poco smartphone will be arriving in the year 2020. The tweet was deleted immediately. Announced this week, Xiaomi filed trademark application for the Poco F2 moniker. This hinted the arrival of the Poco F2 might be few months away. Interestingly, a new device named Poco X2 has shown on Geekbench with few major specs. The name has been spotted for the initial time. Last year, a fake Geekbench listing of the Poco F1 Lite had fooled many tech sites. There is no confirmation on the existence of a Poco X2 smartphone and it is commendable to wait for newer news to know whether it very exists.
The Poco X2 Geekbench 5 listing shows that it is powered by a Qualcomm cpu that has a main frequency of 1.80GHz. The SoC is coupled of 8 GB of RAM. Instead of the name of the chipset, the listing has ‘phoenixin’ stated in the motherboard field.
The Poco X2 handset is loaded with Android 10 OS. On Geekbench 5’s single-core test scored 547 points. It recorded a score of 1767 in the multi-core test.
In November 2019, XDA Developers had carried a report that had uncovered some of the major details of the Redmi K30 prior its December release. It had scoured through MIUI 11 code to find a phone codenamed like Phoenix to be equipped with features like a 120Hz screen, a side-facing fingerprint scanner and the Sony IMX686 scanner. The Phoenix debuted like Redmi K30.
The Redmi K20 Pro handset’s codename is Raphael and its Indian edition is codenamed like ‘raphaelin.’ The Redmi K30 is codenamed as Phoenix and the newly spotted Poco F2 has ‘in’ suffix in its ‘phoenixin’ codename. Thus, there is a possibility that Redmi K30 may be rebranded as Poco X2 in India. The Redmi K30 that has a model number of M191G7BI was spotted in the database of Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).v The BIS approval offer that the handset may be expected to India soon. However, rather of the Redmi K30 moniker, it might be named Poco X2.
