After a long wait, Pocophone, a sub brand from the infamous Smartphone company Xiaomi has made it’s way into the hearts of Malaysia. With that said, you can actually get the Pocophone F1 officially from Xiaomi Malaysia. Before that let us go through the Specification.
The Pocophone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 under the hood paired up with 6GB RAM and upto 256GB Internal Storage under the hood. On the front, it houses a 6.18” FHD+ Display in the 19:9 aspect ratio. As for the camera, you get a 20MP Front Facing selfie camera. On the back it has a dual camera setup going on: a 12MP Primary sensor from Sony and a secondary 5MP Samsung sensor. As for the battery, it does have a 4000 mAh capacity that claims to last for 2 days. It supports Quick Charge 3.0 to sweeten the deal.
It doesn’t end there. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the back and a IR Face Unlock feature that uses the dedicated Infrared sensor to unlock – even under low light. Finally it runs a special version called MIUI for POCOPHONE, where the whole experience is a lot more streamlined, cleaner and has some interesting add-ons to it.
