Xiaomi is all set to launch the first smartphone of its new brand Poco, the Poco F1 in a launch event in New Delhi. As previously reported, it is likely that Xiaomi is planning to take on its competition by offering a smartphone with top-of-the-line specifications at an aggressive pricing. The device is likely to compete in the mid-premium price segment with other devices such as the OnePlus 6 and the Asus Zenfone 5Z. Xiaomi has not revealed any details about the upcoming device including the specifications and availability at the time of writing.

It is possible that the device will be available as a Flipkart exclusive if we are to go by the teasers posted on the Flipkart website. The company started posting teasers about the Poco brand a few weeks back, and shortly after it sent us an invite for the event. The event is scheduled to start at 12:30PM, and we will be following everything that will take place at the event. Join us here to stay updated with the latest updates from the Poco F1 by Xiaomi launch event.
