The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 has been an object of speculation since it first appeared in FCC documents. Veteran tipster Roland Quandt took to Twitter to reveal the European pricing of the Pocophone F1. And judging from the pricing, it might give a tough competition to the OnePlus 6.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 will seemingly be cheap as chips… listing in eastern Euroland for ~420 Euro (6/64GB) and ~460 Euro (6/128GB) (prices converted). If it really has an SDM845 that pricing would be really impressive for a device with a 5,99in 2160x1080px screen.

According to the tweet, the Pocophone F1 will be available in two memory variants, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. The 64GB variant will likely be priced at €420 ($490) while the 128GB variant will be priced at €460 ($536). The 128GB variant of the Pocophone F1 does bring a competition to the table against the OnePlus 6 8GB+128GB variant which is priced at around $664.
The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 had leaked on a hands-on video after passing by FCC. The phone follows in the steps of the Mi8 with a notch on the top. The width of the notch hints at the presence of 3D facial recognition. The back houses a vertically aligned dual camera set up smack in the middle, a design aspect never before seen in Xiaomi phones. The phone lacks a fingerprint scanner which bolsters our speculation regarding facial recognition. There’s also a chance of an in-display fingerprint scanner being present. From the leaked video, we know that there will be a variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. The phone’s screen is expected to be 5.99-inch in size with a 2160 x 1080p resolution. The presence of the Snapdragon 845 has also been speculated.
There is no confirmation as to when this phone will be revealed but since it has been spotted collecting certifications, a launch is imminent.
