The Poco X2 is currently one of the best mid-range smartphones. It comes with the Snapdragon 730G chipset paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM. Moreover, the 120hz refresh rate display makes it stand out from the competition. On the software front, the device runs on Android 10 with the MIUI 11 skin.
Speaking of which, the China variant known as the Redmi K30 4G has already received the MIUI 12 update. But that has not been the case with the Poco X2 yet. The device is in line to receive the MIUI 12 update. However, there’s no official release date for it.
