Just less than a day after the POCOPHONE F1 was seen on a Romanian online store, new images showing the phone itself have surfaced along with that of its retail box. The images also confirm some of its specs. The images are from the same Romanian store that has the phone available for pre-order.
The first image which shows the front of the POCOPHONE F1 confirms the phone has a notch. Within the notch sits a LED flash, the earpiece, and the 20MP selfie camera. There are a bunch of sensors there too and according to the sticker on the phone, there is an IR sensor for face unlock.
The sticker also confirms the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor with Qualcomm’s own AI engine. It also confirms it has liquid cooling and a 4,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
Another image that shows the display powered on shows the POCOPHONE F1 has a lower bezel that is significantly thicker than that of the Mi 8 trio.
There are two images that show the rear of the phone. As you can see the POCOPHONE F1 is made of metal and covered in indigo paint. Its dual rear cameras have the same design shown in its FCC documentation. We are glad Xiaomi switched to a different design for the rear cameras seeing as most of its dual camera phones released this year share a similar design.
The cameras have a red ring around them similar to Nubia‘s style and right under the sensors is a fingerprint scanner. The whole setup (cameras and fingerprint sensor) share a single housing. A dual LED flash flanks the setup on the left.
The other images show the sides of the phone. There is a SIM tray on the left and the bottom is home to a USB-C port flanked on each side by speaker grilles. Don’t be fooled, the POCOPHONE F1 won’t come with stereo speakers as one of the grilles is home to a microphone. The volume buttons and power buttons are on the right and there is a 3.5mm audio jack at the top.
The image of the retail box shows Xiaomi is going for a more colorful packaging. The second half of the box is shown to be bright yellow, a deviation from the black box Xiaomi uses for its flagship phones.
A sticker on the box reveals the variant inside has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also confirms it has dual SIM support. The same specs listed on the sticker in the image above are reproduced on the box. Based on the info on the box, the phone will come with a clear soft case along with the usual accessories.
According to the source, the POCOPHONE F1 will be available in Europe by mid-September and will arrive in India in the first week of October. Pricing in Europe starts at around €420 according to reports.
