Xiaomi recently announced their new sub-brand in India called “POCO”. The Pocophone F1 is expected to be the first phone in the new lineup. There’s not a lot left to imagine thanks to an earlier listing on a Romanian store. This time around, a hands-on video and the storage options of the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 have leaked.
The hands-on video confirms what we saw on the Romanian site’s listing. The phone will sport a rather wide notch up top with a chin thicker than the Mi 8’s. There’s a headphone jack up top and the USB Type-C port sits on the bottom with the speaker and the microphone grills flanking it. The phone has a dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner on the back. The phone will come with MIUI 9.
Another leak that has surfaced has thrown light on the three variants of the Pocophone F1. Apparently, the phone will be available in three variants, 6GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB. The 6GB variants will be available in 4 colours, red, blue, grey and something called gradient. I’m assuming gradient will be the texture and not some colour. The 8GB variant will be available in all colours except the Red one and will instead have a Kevlar variant. As far as the pricing is concerned, since Xiaomi is launching this phone in India, it will likely start with a sub $500 pricing going all the way up to $600.
