Earlier this month, Xiaomi announced that it was creating a sub-brand called Poco that targets the mid-range segment. Not much is known about the brand other than the fact that Xiaomi's Lead Product Manager Jai Mani would be overseeing the project, but that's set to change next week. Poco's Indian arm sent out a tweet saying that its first phone will be unveiled in New Delhi on August 22.
The device in question will be the Pocophone F1. Numerous leaks over the course of the last month have given us an accurate picture of the device and its specs, which will include a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 4000mAh battery, 20MP front camera with face unlock and AI-based portrait mode, and USB-C connectivity. The F1 will have a notch, and it will be powered by MIUI on the software side of things.
We've seen a slate of new devices make their debut in this segment recently — including the Huawei Nova 3 series — and it'll be interesting to see if Xiaomi can carve out a niche for itself with the Pocophone F1. Thankfully, we don't have to wait long to find out all there's to know about the Pocophone F1.
In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the upcoming phone?
