The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 was confirmed to have a launch planned for India yesterday. It has made its way to the FCC and appeared in a few leaks. It has fulfilled all the criteria for becoming a hot topic of discussion. As of today, it has appeared on the official Bluetooth SIG website. The phone is listed under the model number M1805E10A which corroborates with its earlier listing on NCC. The presence of MIUI 10 has also been confirmed.
The phone was listed today and a few key details have been revealed. This is what the listing says,
POCOPHONE F1 is a one-of-a-kind smartphone that sports a flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 processor with liquid cooling system which help boasts extremely fast processing power at a sustained peak performance. It has a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup with 1.4µm large pixels and dual pixel autofocus on the main sensor. POCO F1 has a 20MP front camera which supports Super Pixel—technology that combines the information of four pixels into one large pixel, which can reduce photo noise, capture more light and enhance photo quality, especially in low-light conditions. Paired with an infrared illuminator and an infrared camera, POCO F1 can be secured using AI face unlock, which works just as well in pitch-dark conditions as it does in bright daylight.
The text is simple and easy to understand. It boasts of the camera tech and the processor coupled with the liquid cooling which will be interesting to see. The listing details the processor configuration but does not reveal the memory options. An earlier hands-on video confirmed the presence of 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. As far as the facial recognition is concerned, “AI Face Unlock” does not really throw light on the presence of structured lighting. Xaiomi has currently limited the iPhone-X like Face ID to the Mi8 Explorer Edition. The phone has passed by FCC and now made a trip to Bluetooth SIG. It won’t be long before it ends up on TENAA or other certification websites, confirming its launch. The Xiaomi Pocophone is expected to be priced anywhere between $490 to $536.
