The new POCO X2 will be receiving the upcoming Android 11 update, as confirmed by POCO’s Marketing and Communications Executive.
This announcement comes only a few days after Google rolled out the first developer preview for Android 11. While it’s still a long while before the POCO X2 gets it, it’s reassuring that the independent brand is continuing Xiaomi‘s quick software update releases even if it’s now a separate entity.
Currently, the POCO X2 runs on MIUI 11 with Android 10 beneath it — the latest commercially available Android operating system. Under the hood, it’s packed with a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, up to 8GB LPDDRX RAM, and 256GB of built-in UFS 2.1 storage. It also has massive 6.67-inch Full HD+ IPS RealityFlow display with 120Hz refresh rate.
Hopefully, more smartphone manufacturers will follow suit and announce Android 11 support for their products ahead of its official release.
The POCO X2 is priced at INR15,999 in India (~Php11,500). As for its official pricing and availability in the Philippines, there’s currently no information about it yet.
