POCO recently became independent of Xiaomi to become a standalone brand. Following this independence, the brand is now set to launch its first smartphone, the POCO X2. We recently reported that the device would launch with 8GB RAM and Android 10.
POCO has revealed that the POCO X2 will arrive next week Tuesday, February 4. The device will feature an “extreme refresh rate” for “extreme gaming”. It will sport a 64MP camera using the Sony IMX686 sensor.
The POCO X2 was introduced on Twitter with the tagline “SmoothAF”, extending to “BeSmoothAF” and “AreYouSmoothAF”. The tweet also includes a short link that directs you to a POCO X2 landing page that advertises the device’s 120Hz display.
The landing page shows your current screen refresh rate with some message to make you consider switching to the POCO X2. At the end of the message, there is another link that leads you to a page showing the launch countdown.

The 60Hz message reads:
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE ON A SCREEN TECHNOLOGY ALMOST 2 DECADES OLD? LET GO OF THESE DELUSIONS OF ADEQUACY. DON’T KID YOURSELF.
The 90Hz message reads:
IT’S KINDA CUTE THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU ARE SMOOTH AND FAST ALL THIS WHILE. LIFE IS FULL OF DISAPPOINTMENTS, WHY STICK WITH ANOTHER ONE? DON’T KID YOURSELF.
Even if your device has a 120Hz refresh rate, there is a message for you:
OH SO YOU THINK YOU MADE A SMART CHOICE BY SPENDING ALL THAT MONEY ON THE LATEST AND THE BEST? WE’D AGREE WITH YOU, BUT THEN WE BOTH WOULD BE WRONG. DON’T KID YOURSELF.
What if you visit the page on a computer. Right? Well, POCO still has a message for you:
WE KINDA RAN OUT OF BUDGET WHILE DESIGNING THIS WEBSITE, AND THAT’S WHY IT’S MOBILE ONLY. TRY IT OUT ON YOUR PHONE, WILL YOU?
The whole idea is apparently to downplay your current phone’s refresh rate and advertise the POCO X2’s 120Hz display. So, when you click on the link after the message, you are directed to the countdown page which also shows some features of the device.
The launch is only a few days away and we can’t wait to see if the POCO X2 performs up to the brand’s hype.
