RealityFlow (120 Hz) Display
More the frames, smoother is the viewing experience. This smartphone lets you enjoy just that, with its extreme refresh rate. Not to forget, its FHD+ display with the tall-body design will keep you glued to the visuals on-screen. The 120Hz refresh rate on the POCO X2 means that content refreshes up to 120 times per second, surpassing the 90Hz that we have seen on authentic flagships like the OnePlus 7 Pro (review), OnePlus 7T (review), the OnePlus 7T Pro (review), and the Realme X2 Pro (review). Few phones have come with 120Hz display, with the list including the two Razer Phones as well as the ASUS ROG Phone II. However, the POCO X2 is the first non-flagship to sport a 120Hz refresh rate, and this raises exciting possibilities about the trends we might see this year.
Quad Rear Camera Array
This smartphone’s quad-camera system (64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, 2 MP depth sensor, and 2 MP macro sensor) will help you click stunning photos wherever you go.The POCO X2, are among the first smartphones in the world (and the very first in India) to get Sony’s IMX686 64MP camera sensor, which succeeds the uber-popular Sony IMX586 48MP sensor. The Sony IMX686 is a 1/1.7-inch sensor, which is slightly bigger than its Samsung counterpart, allowing in a tad bit more light – even though both the sensors utilize pixels of 0.8μm. With the help of 4-in-1 pixel binning, both sensors produce 16MP images which are primarily made of 1.6μm pixels. Along with the primary 64MP sensor, the camera setup features an 8MP wide-angle camera with a 120º field of view, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. While the wide-angle camera is fixed focus, the 2MP macro camera supports auto-focusing, and this will allow users to get really close to tiny objects. Additionally, all three sensors support video recording – the main sensor can be used to record up to 4K videos at 30fps, the wide-angle at up to 1080p at 30fps, and the macro camera can shoot 720p video at 30fps.
Performance and Battery
he POCO X2’s inability to be called a true flagship is due to the fact that it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G. The mobile platform shows definite readiness for playing most heavy games, as we saw in our Realme X2 gaming review, but the framerate might be restricted by software in games like PUBG Mobile. In theory, the 120Hz display should support games that feature gameplay at up to 120fps.During initial gaming experiences on the POCO X2, the phone ran games like PUBG Mobile (max at 40fps unless overclocked with PUB GFX tool), COD Mobile (at 60fps), Asphalt 9, Real Racing 3, etc. effortlessly.When it comes to the battery, the POCO X2 features a 4,500mAh battery with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0+. The charger within the box surprisingly supported charging at up to 27W even though it is only rated for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3 .
. The phone features a large 6.67-inch display that grants the phone its tall and broad physique. Besides this, the POCO X2 is only slightly thinner than 0.9cm. A glass back was missing on the first Pocophone, and the company has added it to the POCO X2 to secure the dazzling shades on the back panel with Gorilla Glass 5. The curved edges of the glass back make the POCO X2 settle almost easily in the palm. Notably, the back does not feel like it’s made entirely of glass but rather a plastic panel reinforced with glass; this combination should ensure that the back does not get scratched up easily. It also comes with a water-repellent P2i coating, but this does not guard the phone against sweat, smudges, or fingerprints.he back panel comes in three different color options – blue, red, and violet – and we have the blue one with us. While the first two have a reflective gradient surface, the third one has a satiny finish on the back with a single uniform color. The Redmi K30 also has a white color variant, but that is not available for the POCO X2 yet. Additionally, the camera module on the back is surrounded by a holographic circle that gives the impression of a convex mirror. This circle reflects light in a beguiling manner and takes your attention off the thick camera bump that houses the four rear camera sensors.
