“Redmi K30, which is expected to be a rebranded version of POCO X2 in India, also sports a side-mounted fingerprint scanner”
Ahead of the POCO X2 India launch on February 4th, the company has confirmed the handset will sport a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. POCO has shared a new teaser of the phone via its official Twitter account. The tweet reads “Less than 24 hours to go to unlock the secret behind #POCOX2″, while the image reveals the side-profile of the POCO X2 with a glowing button below the volume rocker and fingerprint scanner. With that, we can superimpose that the handset will have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It’ll be embedded underneath the button that can also be used to power the device on/ off. Interestingly, the Redmi K30, which is expected to be a rebranded version of POCO X2 in India, also sports a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
POCO X2 price, specifications
The POCO X2 price in India is rumoured to start at Rs 18,999; however, we are expecting it to around Rs 16,999, so that it can take on the Realme X2. The handset will be up for sale exclusively on the e-commerce platform Flipkart across the country. The phone could come in at least two 6GB/ 8GB RAM models and purple hues.
If the POCO X2 is indeed Redmi K30 – which was launched back in December, it’ll rock Snapdragon 730G SoC under the hood. The phone will sport a 6.67-inch 120Hz ‘RealityFlow Display’ with an elongated punch-hole for dual selfie cameras. The front camera of the handset may get a 20MP primary sensor paired with a 2MP secondary shooter, while its quad rear cameras feature 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor + 8MP super wide-angle lens + 5MP macro + 2MP depth.
The POCO X2 is likely to run Android 10-based MIUI 11 and house a 4,500mAh battery with 27W fast-charging.
