Hi, Mi fans!

POCO F1 was just announced yesterday at New Delhi. This smartphone aims at delivering speed and performance at a very attractive price. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and featuring liquid cooling technology, it's definitely a beast. Now, in case you missed this milestone event, we made it easy for you: Check out the launch recap of this amazing smartphone.

First things first: we know how much you care about performance, because of that, the POCO team removed everything unnecessary and consolidated all our efforts in functionality and performance. They focused on giving you the fastest performing smartphone with the smoothest user experience possible.

Really, this phone will be the very best of performance.

And the Snapdragon 845... Qualcomm’s fastest offering, to power the POCO F1, pure speed and power.

POCO F1 speeds past the competition with an AnTuTu score of nearly 300,000!

Compared to flagship smartphones without liquid cooling, POCO F1 dissipates heat away from the processor 300% faster.

Ok but, what about the other specs? POCO is not only the Master of Speed, is much more!

POCO F1 features up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of storage.

We also have included a microSD card slot, letting up expand your storage by another 256GB.

It's also about THE feeling. POCO F1 is crafted to bring aesthetics and usability together, creating a smartphone that fits perfectly in your hand.

At the bottom, we have a USB type-C for fast charging.

POCO F1 features an FHD+ 6.19” full-screen display. The display is ultra bright at a maximum of 500nit, along with NTSC 95% for that incredible colour accuracy and a high contrast ratio of 1500:1.

We have added an IR camera for fast face unlock even under low-light. Our testing shows that on average the unlock time in total darkness is just under 0.4 second.

POCO F1 feature stereo speakers as well. The speakers feature deep bass and bright vocal clarity. This makes gaming and watching movies much more immersive and satisfying.

Three amazing colors...

Plus, a special Armoured Edition:

You will also have POCO F1 Armoured edition. The armoured edition is made with kevlar aramid one of the key material used in many extreme sports gear to ensure its durability and lightness of it. In fact, Dupont is the only supplier in the world to supply the kevlar material. It is extremely durable, 5 times stronger than steel.

Regarding the camera, the main camera uses a 12MP Sony IMX 363 sensor and a 5MP Samsung sensor for its secondary sensor to capture depth map so as to give you that beautiful portrait shots.

The main camera features dual-pixel autofocus. This means the main camera has up to 12 million focus point at any one time for that precise and fast focusing.

POCO F1 is also able to intelligently recognize 206 scenes across 25 categories and do real-time optimization and settings to the photo.

POCO F1 packs a 20MP high-res front camera and that is probably one of the best in the market. Moreover, POCO’s AI beautify is optimized through deep learning and tuned specially for India. POCO F1’s front camera works really well in challenging conditions such as low-light.

The brand new app drawer better facilitates app searches, great for power users who want to look for the apps they need in a snap. The POCO Launcher will be also available on Google Play.

App startups are 28% faster than other operating systems, delivering 18% faster gaming performance.

So, Mi Fans, how do feel about this new amazing phone? We will be happy to read your comments and expectations!

Thanks for reading!
