Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1 Aims to Be The Next Speed King

Paired with a mind-blowing price

Not content in its line of bang-for-the-buck flagship phones, Xiaomi makes another iteration of its bang-for-the-buck flagship with the Pocophone F1. Unlike Xiaomi’s other Snapdragon 845-equipped phones, the Pocophone F1 utilizes a polycarbonate build while sporting a LiquidCool system and a bigger 4000mAh battery.

While it keeps the exterior simple, the Pocophone F1 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Staying true to its “Master of Speed” moniker, the Pocophone F1’s Snapdragon 845 processor is paired with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 2.1 expandable storage, giving users the ultimate in performance.

To keep the Pocophone F1 running at top speed, a LiquidCool system keeps temperatures at bay.

Aside from Rosso Red, Steel Blue, and Graphite Black, the Pocophone F1 will have an armored edition that is equipped with a Kevlar back.

The cameras aren’t a slouch either, as the Pocophone F1 comes with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 camera with AI tricks to boot. Other features of the Pocophone F1 include stereo speakers, quick charging, and IR Face Unlock.

  1. I knew it di papatalo ang Xiaomi nung tinapatan ng Honor Play. I’ll wait and see pa more until november comes (maraming sales) then I’ll upgrade from Zenfone Max Pro.

  2. Internals are at par with honor play but faster processing (at same memory config). Though polycarbonate body, it is still a better buy. Except for extra big notch.
