Last month, Xiaomi launched the Poco F1 in India. The first smartphone unveiled under the company s newly-created Poco sub-brand, the F1 immediately grabbed everyone s eyeballs, thanks to a combination of top-of-the-line hardware (e.g. Snapdragon 845) and affordable price (starting at Rs 20,999). However, it seems that Xiaomi (had to) cut some corners to bring down the price of the Poco F1. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi 10T India launch could happen soon, hints Xiaomi’s Manu Jain

According to a report by XDA Developers, several Poco F1 smartphone users are experiencing light bleed issues. The problem is apparently most evident at the bottom edge of the smartphone s screen, which is considerably brighter than the rest of the panel. The report further mentioned that one of the Poco F1 users had their return request refused by Flipkart, but the e-tailer eventually refunded the amount on grounds of quality issues .

There hasn t been any response by Xiaomi regarding the issue, and it s unclear whether the problem is limited to just some Poco F1 units or we re talking about an entire defective batch here. Either way, it d be in Xiaomi s best interest to address these complaints as soon as possible, lest its new sub-brand fizzles out before it has even properly taken off.

All standard connectivity options are on-board, and a 4,000mAh battery rounds off the spec sheet.
