After several weeks of rumors and leaks, Xiaomi has finally launched its much-awaited Pocophone F1 smartphone. The device was launched in New Delhi, India and based on its price-to-value ratio it’s all set to redefine the term “flagship killer”.
The first thing that you’ll notice about Pocophone F1 when you see it is how slick, stylish and premium design it has. It has a metal back with a large, gorgeous display on the front. That display is a 6.18-inch LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution (2,246 x 1,080 px) and Gorilla Glass protection. The actual version of Gorilla Glass wasn’t revealed, however, the hardware details of this device are even more awesome than its premium looks. It comes with a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM options and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB storage options. For photographers, there’s a 12mp+5mp dual lens primary camera and a massive 20mp selfie camera.
The device has also got the facial unlocking feature, and dedicated hardware to make it work reliably (i.e. infrared sensors and a set of sensors for detection of light bouncing back from face). It also supports fast charging, and a QuickCharge 3.0 charger comes inside the box. It has got the much much-touted liquid cooling technology that can keep the processor cool while you play games or perform other resource hungry tasks.
The Pocophone F1 runs on MIUI 9.6 which is based on Android Oreo, but it has been modified to suit the device. Its name is MIUI for Poco, and it’s more like Nova launcher than its other sibling. This entire impressive setup of hardware and software is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery.
Pricing of Pocophone F1
And now the biggest shocker. The price of this super powerful beast? Just $300 or 21,000 INR. This is India price though – the price for global market will be released at 3 other events that the company is planning to host at Jakarta, Paris and Hong Kong on 27th August. In India, the first sale of the device is to be held on Flipkart with a discount of 1,000 INR starting from 29th August.
