Xiaomi Redmi X launching on May 14 to take on Realme X, will come to India as Poco F2?
The fight between Xiaomi and Realme is warming up every passing day. Xiaomi and Realme just launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Realme 3 Pro, respectively, in India. Now the two phone brands are gearing up to launch their own flagships and the interesting bit is the name of the two upcoming Redmi and Realme phones are also very similar. Redmi is all set to launch the Redmi X while Realme CMO has confirmed that the Realme X is coming soon. Until now we heard that both the phones are coming, but now the Redmi X gets a launch date.
The Redmi X is all set to launch on May 14, a leaked posted on Weibo suggests. It must be noted that the Redmi X will currently launch in China and later come to other markets. The question now is, will Redmi X come to India? Well, as of now there are no reports on the India launch of the Redmi X. But rumours suggest that the Redmi X will be rebranded to Poco F2 for the Indian market. This is highly likely because Xiaomi claims that the Redmi X will be the cheapest Snapdragon 855 chipset phone launched so far. Poco follows the same strategy.
Last year, Poco F1 was launched as the cheapest Snapdragon 845 chipset phone. The rumoured Poco F2 may follow the same strategy. It is safe to assume that the Poco F2 will be the cheapest Snapdragon 855 phone in India. Take this information with a pinch of salt because the company is yet to confirm the Poco F2.
