- Poco could launch a OnePlus Nord rival in the coming weeks.
- The OnePlus Nord rival could feature a 120Hz display.
- The phone could also bring support for really fast charging.
Poco had previously teased the launch of a new OnePlus Nord rival, and now the company has revealed more details about the device. High ranking executives from Poco have been taking to Twitter to tease details about the upcoming device, with the latest about the device teasing that the phone could come with a 120Hz display.
But that's not it. It has also been teased that the phone could come with a 64-megapixel primary camera sensor, and also bring fast-charging technology, possibly even the 120W support we've seen with the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
Earlier, taking to Twitter Poco's product marketing manager Angus Kai Ho Ng had asked fans if they would go for the OnePlus Nord or wait for a new Poco smartphone, thereby all but revealing that a new mid-range Poco phone may be in the works. Interestingly, the tweet also received a reply from Poco's global handle, which serves as an additional hint that there is something actually cooking at Poco's end.
For now, there is no other information about the upcoming phone, with the only information available being that the phone is "coming soon." As such, it would be premature to even speculate on the specifications of the device. However, from the track record of Poco this year, it is entirely possible that the new phone could even come as a rebranded version of an existing Xiaomi or Redmi smartphone.
But either way, as a OnePlus Nord competitor, this phone will have to pack in some serious fire power at an aggressive price. This is because the OnePlus Nord comes with a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel running at a refresh rate of 90Hz. The display is rated to provide 408ppi pixel density and 20:9 aspect ratio. Beneath the surface, there's a rather powerful Snapdragon 756G processor which has been paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB storage.
For cameras, the phone has a quad-camera set-up that houses a 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 sensor with an f/1.75 lens and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) + Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) support. This sits next to an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens with 119 field-of-view (FOV), a 5-megapixel macro lens with an f/2.4 aperture, and 2-megapixel depth sensor unit. The front camera is a 32-megapixel Sony IMX616 sensor.
