Xiaomi’s mysterious Pocophone F1 is slowly becoming less mysterious as more and more leaks pour in to describe the handset. The latest tidbit indicates that the device is a gaming smartphone in the vein of the Black Shark gaming phone.
This information has arrived thanks to the Pocophone F1’s Bluetooth certification. The listing has a long description of the phone, stating that it features a Snapdragon 845 SoC with a liquid cooling system. This setup is supposed to allow for extremely fast processing power at a sustained peak performance.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Rumored Specs
Even Xiaomi’s Black Shark handset has a liquid cooling system inside to keep temperatures low when playing high-intensity games. Maybe the Pocophone F1 is a spin-off from the device or a new variant meant to appeal to a broader audience.
The listing also mentions that the Xiaomi smartphone will feature specs like a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup. The 12MP lens might get enhanced with 1.4um large pixels and dual pixel autofocus. On the flip side, there could be a 20MP selfie shooter with Super Pixel skills.
Super Pixel is supposed to help cut down on noise, improve image quality, and capture more light in low-light situations. It does this by merging the information of 4 pixels into 1 large pixel. The Pocophone F1 apparently has an infrared illuminator and an infrared camera as well, allowing users to unlock the device via AI Face Unlock day or night.
Word on the street is that the Pocophone F1 will be launched globally and is definitely coming to India. Nobody knows for sure when this is going to happen, but given the spate of leaks it shouldn’t be long now. Prices may start at EUR 420 (approx Rs 33709) for the 6GB/64GB option and end at EUR 460 (roughly Rs 36919) for the 6GB/128GB one.
