Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO officially launched their first product, the Poco F1 here in India starting at just Rs 20,999 for the base variant which has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. For a price, this low, Poco F1 even packs a Snapdragon 845 Soc and an Adreno 630 GPU which is just insane. And yes, soon or later, it will be available globally.
Diving into complete specifications, the Poco F1 comes with a 6.18-inch full-HD+ display with a mighty notch over it which covers the IR sensors as well for better low light facial recognition along with some basic sensors and front camera. If you are a notch hater, you can still remove it in settings. Coming to optics, it has a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 + 5-megapixel rear dual camera setup with Dual Pixel technology, HDR, and real-time AI photography. On the front, it has a 20-megapixel camera which also supports HDR and Xiaomi’s Beautify 4.0.
Under the hood, the Poco F1 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc coupled with an Adreno 630 GPU making it the cheapest smartphone in the world which has a Snapdragon 845 chipset. Talking about the RAM, it comes with 6GB of RAM which goes up to 8GB and 64GB internal storage which goes up to 256GB. And it also has microSD card support which can be expandable up to 256GB. Poco also said that the handset comes with 4G+ capability, for better indoor coverage and faster download speeds.
And Oh, Poco F1 also has LiquidCooling system for better heat dissipation.
Coming to software end, Poco F1 runs on MIUI Android 8.1 Oreo, which is specially redesigned for Poco. It has a dedicated Poco Launcher, which offers a stock experience instead of the shitty MIUI launcher.
