Chinese OEM Xiaomi is very popular for making devices with the latest features at an affordable price. Usually, we see top-notch features are loaded on to phones what we refer to as flagships. Flagships are costly and not everyone’s cup of tea. Taking advantage of this, Xiaomi is apparently planning to release a new flagship device under the moniker of Pocophone F1. Rumor has it that this will be the cheapest Android device to pack the powerful Snapdragon 845 chipset. Currently, the Bluetooth certification document of Pocophone F1 is making rounds of the internet. The device goes by the model number M1805E10A. It will run the latest MIUI 10 ROM from Xiaomi.
A processor is not the only aspect of an efficient phone. There are other departments that are as well. From the Bluetooth certification document of Pocophoe F1, other hardware details are available too. Lately, Xiaomi is focussing a lot on AI. The Pocophoe F1, of course, incorporates AI among its features. The face unlocking feature will work on this technology.
The device will come in two variants with different RAM and storage configuration. Buyers will have the option to choose between 6GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB combo. The camera set-up has 12+5 MP dual lens on the back side. The bigger lens will bring dual-pixel autofocus. There is a powerful selfie snapper of 20 MP that enables Super Pixel Technology. This will help in reducing noise and capturing more light in a photo.
Pocophone F1 may be a hit in the Asian markets like India. Here, a majority of buyers look for features as well as the budget when considering a phone. Snapdragon 845 SoC will enhance the performance to a great extent. All that will not burn holes in the users pocket. Besides, other biggies who drop expensive flagship may face tough competition from Xiaomi Pocophone F1, which will allegedly available at INR33,500 in India.
So, what do you think, will the Pocophoe F1 be a cheap and efficient alternative to other flagships? Will it be worth the hype?
