- POCO X2 prices in India raised by Rs 500 each for 6GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB variants
- This is the second price hike for the smartphone after the April 1 price increase
- All three POCO X2 variants are out of stock on Flipkart at the moment
The POCO X2 prices in India have been silently increased by the company for two of the three variants on offer. This price hike comes within 2 months of the Xiaomi-owned brand raising the prices by Rs 1,000 due to the government-mandated GST increase that saw most of the industry raise prices for smartphones. With this latest price increase, POCO X2 base variant costs Rs 17,499, up by Rs 1,500 over its launch price of Rs 15,999. The new prices are already reflecting on Flipkart, the official retail partner for the POCO X2 smartphone.
