- The Poco F1, according the the hands-on video, will have a design reminiscent of the Mi 8 which invariably means that it would have an iPhone X-like design.

"POCO is all about making a powerful smartphone with the technologies that truly matter", POCO's PM Jai Maini said on Twitter last week.

The FCC approved the POCOPHONE brand back in July and the listing revealed that the phone will be packing a 6.4-inch screen with reduced bezels, meaning a lot of screen real estate in return.

In terms of optics, the POCO F1 will be offering 12MP + 5MP dual cameras on the rear and a single 20MP selfie camera on the front.

The camera will also have AI capabilities and hopefully, a Portrait Mode might become a part of the software, just like what came with the Mi 8. The phone is expected to be available in multiple variants 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB. The device will house a 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
