After an entire year of hiatus, Poco has reborn as an independent company. Just after the announcement, the company started to tease a new smartphone under the Poco brand that is meant for the Indian market. The first smartphone to come from the company’s new solo adventure will be the Poco X2. This particular handset has been leaking a lot, and all rumors were pointing that it is just a rebranding.
Now, the Poco X2 is just four days away from being announced officially and the company released yet another teaser today. This short video gives us the best look at the phone so far. More importantly, it leaves us with no doubt that the X2 is actually a rebranded Redmi K30.

Gizchina News of the week
The video reveals what is clearly the Redmi K30 in purple color. Of course, we never get a perfectly clear look at the device but it’s easy enough to recognize it as Redmi K30. We can particularly spot the side-mounted fingerprint scanner that doubles as the power button. Moreover, the camera arrangement is easily recognizable.
The Poco X2 as Redmi K30 isn’t really shocking news at this point. We already saw several leaks in the past that were taking us in this direction. Of course, we can simply state that this is just a simple rebranding with zero changes, but so far, it does seem to be that way. After all, India received the K20 series but still didn’t receive the K30 phones. So, it makes sense for Xiaomi to rebrand it as Poco X2.
The Poco X2 will be revealed on February 4, there will know all details about this handset.
