the brand POCO has aroused keen interest from users, with a Pocophone F1 that has managed to establish itself as a true killer flagship. Nonetheless, it is from 2018 that there is no more news on a successor, also considering the split of the Redmi brand from which the K series was born. But hope is the last to die, thanks also to the statements of the general manager of the Indian division of Xiaomi. Pocophone F2 it will be done, therefore, as one of the latest patents filed. In addition to this, a peculiar indiscretion had arisen lately that there would also be a mid-range, called Pocophone X2.
31 / 01 Update: the device has once again popped up on Geekbench, at this round with 6 GB of RAM. Inside the article you will find all the details and screenshots.

22 / 01 Update: plot twist: Pocophone X2 actually seems to exist. Find all the details at the end of the article.
POCO F2 exists, unlike this phantom POCO X2

In the offending screenshot we see one indicated MIUI Global, when we know that there is (for now, at least) a Global ROM for K30. Hence the indiscretion that Redmi K30 could have made its debut in the West just like Pocophone X2, also considering the "similarity" between the Poco and Redmi X ranges.
As explained in the past, faking a GeekBench benchmark is pretty straightforward, if you chew on some programming. The same XDA showed how to falsify them, acting on the system properties of the device used. It is not the first time that themed leaks POCO they stain themselves with fake. It was March 13, 2019 when a mysterious GeekBench benchmark appeared on the net Xiaomi uranus.
