We saw a few months ago the first rumors about a new brand that would be subsidiary of Xiaomi. As with Black Shark and its eponymous smartphone, the company developed a new brand, which was officialized in India a few days ago, the POCO, which would have a device called POCOPHONE F1 in its catalog, and was seen a few times in certification and images.
Now, through the official profile of POCO on Twitter, they announced the launch date of POCOPHONE F1 in the Indian market. The event will take place in the coming weeks, more precisely on 22 August in New Delhi. We do not know what the models are really supposed to be, but at least the F1 must come face-to-face.

Of the leaks, we already know that the smartphone will be equipped with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. In addition, under the hood, it will have 8GB of operating and 128GB of internal memory. Among the other specs, a rear camera with 20MP with smart AI chips, as well as a 4000 mAh battery, was lit.
It’s not very clear why the company needs another flagship, especially when released under a different brand. If we are talking about conquering individual countries, then there are no questions. For example, in the same India, Mi MIX 2S and Mi8 have not yet gone on sale. Hence the appearance there is no one Pocophone F1 is completely justified. Especially for a democratic price. I would bet $ 400, and you?
I hope that the device does not reach our market. Personally, I, for example, for a whole month could not decide which of the current flagships from Xiaomi I like more: Mi8 or Mi MIX 2S. By the way, reviews of both devices have long ago been read on our website. There will be time to wait for the new release on August 22.
