Pocophone breaks down its global release for its $300 powerhouse smartphone

Since last week, there has been a lot of talk about the Pocophone F1. The handset comes from a new brand, which is an offshoot of juggernaut Xiaomi, and offers top-tier specifications, at a very low price. While the device will be made available in India for a starting price of $300 on August 29, the company today revealed the other regions where the phone will be available.

Although a global release was previously mentioned, the firm didn't reveal details of where it could be purchased. As you can see from the picture at the top of the article, the release of the phone will be made available to many areas. If you live in the United States or Canada and were hoping for a release, you'll be disappointed, as the Pocophone F1 at this time will not be made available to those two regions.

While the handset might not be the most elegant looking, the Pocophone F1 does have quite a set of specifications, making use of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor which will be paired with either 6GB or 8GB RAM. The phone has a large 6.18-inch 1080p IPS LCD display and dual camera sensors on the rear, comprised of one 12MP and a 5MP sensor, while the front-facing camera is a 20MP unit. The smartphone will have a USB Type-C port for charging and data and will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery.

Despite it being available in more regions, the price of the device will not be the same as in India, where it starts at around $300 USD. If interested, you can check your local retailer to confirm availability and pricing.

Update: Xiaomi reached out to provide an updated image of the slide which has now been added.
