Xiaomi Poco F1 officially introduced: features and price

Xiaomi's Pocophone F1 Smartphone Launched in India From Rs 20,999 First Online Sale on August 29 at Flipkart and

The Xiaomi Poco F1 seems like a good option at this price, but there are some great alternatives available in the market. The front of the F1 lacks any physical buttons, but there is infrared sensor for face unlock tucked in the notch.

Poco F1 gets a huge display of 6.18 inches and gets a full HD+ display with 500nits brightness. This phone is powered by Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile processor paired with LiquidCool Technology cooling system which enables it to deliver sustained peak performance for extended periods.

Much like the Mi 8, the POCO F1 also comes with an infrared illuminator and infrared camera on the front, allowing the AI face unlock feature to unlock the device both in dark conditions as well as in bright daylight. Going by what the company has to say, the 4,000mAh battery will easily handle all the work for 24 hours with a single charge. The handset supports gesture-based navigations and Xiaomi has promised that Poco phones will be provided with faster updates. Additionally, an Armoured Edition of the Poco F1 with "real Kevlar" was also announced at the event, priced at Rs. 29,999. The super-tough, heat-resistant material is widely used in the aviation industry, the military, and high-end cycling.

Mali-G76 utilises AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance. Because Huawei was first to announce the 7nm chip, the Kirin 980 does qualify as the world's first commercial 7nm processor.

The Poco F1 feels a little heavy in the hand as it packs in a 4000mAh battery.

In many ways, its "master of speed" tagline is being backed by the components that the brand has implemented on the F1. The smartphone has a polycarbonate back and accompanies Rosso Red, Steel Blue and Graphite Black shading choices. Poco F1 costs Rs 20,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM/64GB storage and goes all the way up to Rs 28,999 for 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

It will be available on Mi.com and Flipkart from August 29. With popular Android smartphones like the OnePlus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5Z flaunting a notch display along flagship Snapdragon 845 processor being pricey for the masses, the Poco F1 aims to be a power packed budget alternative. Poco F1 also comes with Jio offer with up to Rs 8000 worth of benefits and 6TB of high speed data. Poco is also utilising Xiaomi's AI engine to improve the camera further. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with MIUI (for POCO) on top. It also sports Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

It's called Pocophone, and by the looks of its first phone, the Pocophone F1, it appears it will launch similarly cheap phones with even better specs than Xiaomi. Connectivity options include Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G+ and USB Type-C port. Plus, the unit won't take hours to fuel up thanks to Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 and an 18W fast charger. As a special offer, HDFC card users get a discount of Rs 1000.
