POCO touts the X2 to capture RAW shots — these are photo files that can be edited in the PC without affecting much of its quality. There’s also a LiquidCool Technology that is said to help improve heat in heavy performance tasks.

What’s interesting here is the software — there’s no mention of it anywhere on its official page. The listing we’ve seen online points to Android 10, but we don’t know yet if they’ll bring in the mobile OS in its vanilla state or pack it up with MIUI on board.

The Poco X2 will be sold on India’s Flipkart starting February 11 with the following price tags: INR 15,999 (Poco X2 6GB+64GB), INR 16,999 (Poco X2 6GB+128GB), and INR 19,999 ( Poco X2 8GB+128GB). No word yet if this phone will arrive in other markets.
