Pocophone, sub-brand of Xiaomi, officially presented its first smartphone in the new Poco line during an international media event in Paris. We speak clearly of the already seen Pocophone F1, presented in New Delhi a few weeks ago, and now also become official in Europe. In this case the new Pocophone F1 is the smartphone ready to capture the public’s attention both for the important technical features but especially for the price that will be able to outperform the competition, or at least the company believes it.
But what does the new Pocophone F1 differ from other Xiaomi devices or competitors? Indeed, the price seems to be able to give the extra gear because at $345.31 the new Poco F1 sees the presence of a top-of-the-range processor but also other technical specifications such as the same facial unlocking technology already on the Xiaomi Mi 8 market.

In detail, the new Pocophone F1 sees the presence first of an IPS LCD display with a diagonal of 6.18″ Full HD+ resolution with an aspect ratio of 18.7: 9 (therefore 2246×1080 pixels) .Invivable not to notice the notch that aesthetically can like or less but that Pocophone has inserted in order to obviate the wide surface of the borderless display but also to all sensors and front cameras.
As mentioned, the flagship of the new Pocophone F1 is undoubtedly the power and therefore its hardware compartment. Here we talk about a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that the company has decided to integrate in this smartphone “low cost” and that no doubt will give the extra gear in the classic operations of every day. The latest generation processor are also joined by 6 or 8 GB of RAM depending on the version chosen and the same thing happens for internal storage that can be from 64GB and 128GB with 6GB of RAM or 256GB for the top of the range with 8GB of RAM.
At the multimedia level we are talking about a photographic sector characterized by a dual 12MP sensor with a focal aperture of f / 1.9 to which a 5MP sensor is added.
