The Poco X2 is yet again going on sale in India today.

Sale begins at 12PM IST and you can head over to Flipkart if you are interested in getting your hands on the new smartphone. Pricing begins at Rs 15,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB variant. The 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant will be available at Rs 16,999 and the top variant with 8GB RAM + 256GB storage will be available for Rs 19,999.

It features a 6.7-inch Full-HD+ (2400x1080 pixels) hole-punch LCD display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, 120Hz refresh rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
