The low-price-high-specs niche is about to get crowded with the coming entry of the Xiaomi Poco X2 into the market. Crammed with impressive specs and features, the new smartphone will definitely pose a serious threat to the competition.

The Xiaomi Poco X2 will be powered by the Snapdragon 730G SoC with MIUI 11 as its operating system, according to GSMArena. The phone has three variants in terms of RAM and memory configurations. The base model sports 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of memory, another variant has 6GB of RAM with 128 GB of memory while the souped-up version sports 8GB of RAM and 256GB of memory.

The Xiaomi Poco X2 features a 6.67-inch RealityFlow display capable of FullHD+ resolution. It has a refresh rate of 120Hz and supports HRD 10. There’s a pill-shaped hole located at its top-right portion for the front-facing cameras.

Speaking of cameras, the Xiaomi Poco X2 does not disappoint either with its quad read camera setup. It boasts of all-new Sony 64-megapixel IMX686 as its main sensor. It also has an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The phone features 2 sensors for its front-facing camera. There’s a 20MP selfie cam and a 20MP depth sensor housed under that pill-shaped hole in the display.

The Xiaomi Poco X2 features a 4,500mAh battery with 27W fast charging via USB-C port. Unlike other phones, this gadget still features a headphone jack.

There’s a fingerprint scanner neatly integrated into its power button. It also features P2i water-repellent coating, IR Blaster, Hi-Res sound and VoWiFi.

The lineup is also affordably priced. The base model which has 6GB of Ram and 64GB storage has a price tag of around $225. There’s a model that has a 6GB of RAM but with 128GB storage with a price tag of $239. A higher-end version, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is priced $280.

The phone will be up against a number of competitors such as the Realme X50 Pro, Asus 6Z, and Samsung’s Lite phones when it releases in India on February 11. However, it’s yet unclear when it will be available to the rest of the world.
