Xiaomi introduced the Mi MIX 2S in March and the Mi 8 flagship device in May both with the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, which was announced in December 2017. Now, another upcoming Xiaomi smartphone has been confirmed to be powered also by Snapdragon 845, as indicated by a new Bluetooth SIG certification.
Called the Xiaomi Pocophone F1, the upcoming device has been listed on the Bluetooth SIG website over the weekend. According to its design description, the handset will include a "liquid cooling system which help boasts extremely fast processing power at a sustained peak performance."
Under the hood, the phone was previously rumored to ship with 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage. Its display is supposed to have a size of 5.99 inches with a notch and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
On the optics side, the Pocophone F1 is expected to boast a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup with 1.4µm large pixels on the back of the phone, with the main sensor featuring a dual pixel autofocus. Sitting on the front panel is a 20MP shooter with support for Super Pixel, which blends details of four pixels into a single large pixel. The technology features noise reduction, improved light capture, and enhanced overall image quality.
The Pocophone F1 also includes the ability for users to unlock the device using facial recognition powered by artificial intelligence. According to XDA Developers, the handset is set for launch in Europe and India for around €420 for the base model and €460 for the 128GB variant. The availability date remains unknown, though.
