After the launch of the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite in Spain yesterday, rumor mills have now turned to other Xiaomi devices in the pipeline. A recent report claimed that Xiaomi plans to launch a new lineup dubbed the ‘Pocophone’, and now we may have come across initial details about the new lineup.
According to leakster Roland Quandt, the first smartphone in this new lineup will be called the Pocophone F1. This lineup is also expected to be targeted at countries in Eastern Europe, and India. The smartphone was recently spotted on FCC, which hints at a US launch. At the launch, buyers will be able to choose from Blue and Grey colors.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 will seemingly be cheap as chips… listing in eastern Euroland for ~420 Euro (6/64GB) and ~460 Euro (6/128GB) (prices converted). If it really has an SDM845 that pricing would be really impressive for a device with a 5,99in 2160x1080px screen.

The USPs of the Pocophone F1 are being said to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and aggressive price tag. Quandt reveals that the device will be launched in two variants. In Europe, the based variant with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM will be priced at €420 (approximately Rs 33,800). While the top variant with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM will be priced at €460 (approximately Rs 37,000).
The upcoming smartphone is also expected to flaunt a 6-inch FHD+ (2160×1080 pixels) display, dual cameras at the back, dual-band Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, and Band 40 LTE support. The recent FCC listing also revealed that the smartphone will feature dimensions of 76x151x163mm. To put this into perspective, the OnePlus 6 is somewhat similar in size, but Xiaomi’s smartphone will be wider.
