Last year in December 2019, Xiaomi Pocophone Global Head Alvin Tse had made a statement on twitter that hinted the arrival of a new Poco handset in the year 2020. However, it was deleted immediately. A few days back, Xiaomi filed trademark application for the Poco F2 moniker which gave us a thought that it could be few months away to be officially unveiled.
Strangely, another device named Poco X2 has showed up on Geekbench with some key specs. The name has been spotted just because. A year ago, a phony Geekbench listing of the Poco F1 Lite had tricked numerous tech sites. Still there is no confirmation on the presence of a Poco X2 handset. It is fitting to hang tight for more current reports to know whether it truly exists.

According to the new report, the Poco X2 is listed on Geekbench 5 which reveals that a Qualcomm processor that has a base frequency of 1.80GHz will be powering the device. Here we can see a 8 GB of RAM model of the device. The listed model of Poco X2 has a motherboard code-named as ‘phoenixin’ which is mentioned in the motherboard field. The Poco X2 handset is loaded with Android 10 OS. On Geekbench 5’s, the device’s single-core test score is 547 points while in multi-core test, it scored 1767 points.
Since it’s the absolute first time the POCO X2 is hitting features, that is all we know up until now. Strangely, the POCO X2 Geekbench scores are like the Redmi K30’s, which was launched in China a month ago. Will it be a rebranded form Redmi K30 smartphone? We’ll need to pause and watch.
