Xiaomi Poco F1 it’s new sub-line named Poco. The first model from this line is Poco F1.
Xiaomi’s Mi Redmi series didn’t make much influence in India. So here Xiaomi stands with a new series called Poco. Xiaomi makes a new start with these Poco Series. The F1 is the first phone from Poco, and it seems to have the essence of a typical Xiaomi phone. It has a powerful processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 to be precise, plus a Poco themed version of MIUI. With OnePlus and Asus cashing in on the market for mid-range flagships, the Poco F1 by Xiaomi seems to be its answer for that particular segment.
Features of Xiaomi Poco F1
Xiaomi has designed the Poco F1 to be in sync with current trends, so it sports a big 6.18-inch display with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and a notch at the top. The other thing you will notice immediately is the chin, which is thicker than on most other phones we have reviewed and doesn’t look appealing. It also houses a tiny notification LED that lights up when charging the device.
The back of the Poco F1 is made out of polycarbonate and the phone will be available in three different colours
- Rosso Red
- Steel Blue
- Graphite Black
- There’s also a special variant called the Armoured Edition, which has a Kevlar back, and Xiaomi claims to have used real Kevlar in its construction.
Hands on the Armoured Edition and we could feel the texture on the back while running our fingers over it. This variant also has a tiny raised bump just below the Poco logo. The device has a hybrid dual-SIM tray that can either accept two SIM cards or one SIM and a microSD card at a time.
The Poco F1 has a dual camera setup camera at the back. Consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor, along with a dual-LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is below the camera module. At the front, there’s a 20-megapixel sensor for selfies positioned within the notch, along with an infrared camera and infrared emitter that are used for face recognition.
