We know the name isn’t catchy but the POCOPHONE F1 is shaping up to be a very interesting device from Xiaomi as it packs flagship specs along with a low price tag. Xiaomi has not yet announced a release date yet but there have been lots of leak on the internet. Now the device has leaked in an unboxing video that bares it all.
The POCOPHONE F1 comes in a black and yellow box. The top black half of the packaging has the words “POCOPHONE by Xiaomi” written in yellow and on the side of the box we have the phone’s name also written in bright yellow and a red tag with the words “Global Version”.
The variant in the box is the 6GB RAM + 64GB Graphite Black model. Inside the box, we have the usual assortment of documents which includes a quick start guide and warranty card. Then there is the phone, a silicone translucent black case, an 18W Xiaomi-branded power adapter, a USB-C cable, and a SIM ejector tool.
The sticker on the phone lists some of the specs such as a Snapdragon 845 processor, a liquid cooling system, dual cameras, and a 4,000mAh battery. On the back, the POCOPHONE F1 has its cameras arranged vertically and positioned in the middle; under the setup is the fingerprint scanner and close to the bottom there is “POCOPHONE” engraved in silver.
The phone also shows “POCOPHONE by Xiaomi” when you boot it up and it is shown to be running MIUI 9. It even has a custom theme named POCO. The unboxing video ends once the initial setup is complete.
The POCOPHONE F1 has a 5.99-inch FHD+ notched display, dual rear cameras, a 20MP sensor, and packs a 4,000mAh battery. It has a hybrid dual SIM slot, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB-C port. When it launches, most likely later this month, it will have a starting price of about ~€420.
