Xiaomi has set its calendar for August 22 event in India where it will unveil its new flagship smartphone under its sub-brand POCO. The POCO F1, or POCOPHONE F1 globally, will get an exclusive sale in Flipkart for the Indian market as the teaser tells. The online store has also launched the hashtag #AsFastAsYou, revealing the Badminton player P.V Sindhu as brand ambassador.
The upcoming POCO F1 will house the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Pretty much like any other recent flagships smartphones. It was also revealed that the smartphone will sport a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display. It will be taller than most devices today though, coming at 19:9 aspect ratio. And as you’d expect, it includes a notch.
A hefty 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage will also complement its flagship status. Albeit it’s a lower configuration than most of the flagships, the smartphone includes a microSD card slot for expansion. To keep the lights on, the device will pack a 4,000mAh of battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. There will also be a liquid cooling pipe inside for better heat dissipation.
For the camera, the phone will feature a dual-rear facing camera. It will be a pair of 12MP and 5MP sensor. Interestingly, the front will utilize a huge 20MP sensor, with IR face unlock feature.
And finally, the POCO F1 will launch with Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiaomi’s MIUI 9.0 on top.
