Xiaomi is known for its budget friendly phones that come with class leading features. Their phones usually set benchmarks for the competitors. However, there’s one 20K segment phone that Xiaomi sells and that too in good numbers. Xiaomi boasts this phone as their Flagship smartphone and there are news that this will get a successor soon. Yes, we are talking about the Poco F1. It’s the cheapest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 phone available in the market.
Most of you might already know about the specs of this phone. We would want to talk about the new phenomenal price that this phone is being offered at. This phone is sold by Flipkart as well as by the Mi Store now at a discounted amount. Yes, you can now get Poco F1 6GB(RAM)+64GB variant at 17,999. This phone always deserved a lot of attention considering the build quality of the phone as well as the specs and now the aggressive pricing that Xiaomi is selling this smartphone at.
Everyone has to agree that Xiaomi has managed to put a high-spec smartphone on sale at a great price. There are still a lot of people out there in the market who will like the design of the phone and some won’t because the Poco F1’s body is entirely made of plastic and the handset simply doesn’t inspire that premium look and feels as you’d get from most contemporary glass or metal body phone.
At only 17,999, the Xiaomi Poco F1 comes with a 6.18-inch screen with 18.7:9 aspect ratio. It’s an IPS LCD panel which has 1080×2246 pixels resolution, a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and can achieve 500nits brightness. Gorilla Glass 3 protection to protect the display of Poco F1 from accidental scratches.
Performance is the area where the Pocophone F1 puts all it’s segment competitors to shame. The phone is driven by one of the best offering of Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845 chipset, which gets an amazing Andreno 630 GPU. It has a fingerprint sensor at the back and a face unlock setup as well. Both the fingerprint sensor and face unlock work amazingly fast.
The Poco phone has a dual camera setup at the back, a 12MP primary shooter with IMX363 Sony Sensor, large 1.4µm pixels, f/1.9 aperture and dual pixel phase detection while the second one is Samsung made 5MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 20MP selfie camera with support for pixel binning. Unfortunately, these camera lose on optical image stabilization.
Poco F1 comes with a massive 4000mAh battery which is better than its immediate rival OnePlus 6. This should last for almost a day even when used continuously. At the end, we’ll still recommend this phone at this price point though we know that Xiaomi will be soon launching a successor to this. All the specs that this phone comes with are amazing and one should really consider buying this if they are looking for something under 20K.
