Poco F1 India launch event slated for August 22.
The smartphone is rumoured to come with a Snapdragon 845 SoC.
Poco F1, the first smartphone from Xiaomi’s new sub-brand Poco, is launching in India on August 22.
An unboxing video of the Poco F1 also emerged on YouTube last week that highlighted its display notch and dual rear camera setup.
The smartphone is said to debut in two different storage variants – with 64GB and 128GB of onboard storage options.
While the Poco F1 price for the 64GB variant is speculated to debut in Eastern Europe at EUR 420 (roughly Rs. 33,300), its 128GB variant could arrive at EUR 460 (roughly Rs. 36,400).
India prices of the smartphone are likely to emerge at the time of formal launch later this month.
As announced through the Twitter account of Poco India, Xiaomi’s Poco will launch the Poco F1 on August 22.
The brand that is led by former Google executive and Xiaomi’s Lead Product Manager Jai Mani is hosting an event in New Delhi to announce the formal launch.
Moreover, a recent video preview of the smartphone also showed its performance on AnTuTu benchmark in which the hardware scored 258,149 points.
Xiaomi is rumoured to sell the Poco F1 in Eastern Europe with a starting price of EUR 420. Therefore, we can safely presume that the new model will be available in India in the sub-Rs. 40,000 price bracket.
