The second picture talks about the camera on the phone, and the clue mentions “6_6” which is obviously the Sony IMX 686 sensor. It will use a 64MP camera lens and has a 1/1.72-inch sensor size.

A Geekbench for the device listing shows that it has 8GB of RAM, runs on Android 10 and is powered by an octa-core processor with a clock frequency of 1.80Hz and the name Phoenixin. This could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 (non 5G variant).

The third Poco X2 launch teaser says that the Poco X2 has an extreme refresh rate for extreme gaming. Could it have a 120Hz display? It appears so, 90Hz can be considered high, but extreme? It has to be 120Hz.


The Poco X2 appears to be a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 5G that was launched in China. It has a 6.67-inches Full HD+ LCD display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor and Adreno 620 GPU.
