Xiaomi has been dominating the budget-oriented and mid-range smartphone market of India for years now. The Chinese manufacturer now plans to enter the flagship market with its new subsidiary POCO. So these are the five best features that make POCO F1 the perfect Flagship smartphone.
1. Flagship Performance At Mid-Range Prices
As OnePlus continues to provide great performance at almost half the price of a flagship. The term Flagship Killer has now become synonyms to OnePlus, especially at the price they are offering. After the OnePlus 6 and ASUS Zenfone 5Z, the POCO F1 will be the third and the top contender in the Flagship Killer category.
The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. POCO F1 comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. This makes the POCO F1 a beast in terms of performance. The device is definitely comparable to $1000 flagships like Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
2. MIUI Designed For POCO
Next major highlight of the POCO F1 is the new MIUI designed for POCO. The new POCO launcher will help improve the performance of the device and fluidity of the user interface. Unlike the traditional MIUI, the new custom skin will help Xiaomi offer faster updates. Not only that, the F1 will get Android P in Q4, 2018. So the smartphone will outperform most competitors in terms of regular and faster updates.
3. LiquidCool Technology
The POCO F1 offers the LiquidCool technology which is a flagship exclusive feature. This will be a water-based cooling using a copper wire. The technology will apparently keep the phone cool even during intense gaming sessions and the company claims that the heat generated by SoC will be dissipated faster with this technology.
4. Aggressive Pricing
POCO F1 is the world’s cheapest smartphone that is powered by the Snapdragon 845. Xiaomi hasn’t left any room for competition with the pricing. In fact, it doesn’t make sense purchasing any other smartphone in the INR 20k-30k price segment in India.
The smartphone retails for Rs 20,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant, Rs 23,999 for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, and Rs 28,999 for the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant.
5. Design And Battery
POCO F1 offers premium design aesthetics and the smartphone has a notch. It is available in three colors: Graphite Black, Steel Blue, Red. POCO is also offering the first party skins for the device. Lastly, the smartphone has an impressive 4000mAh battery backup coupled with Quick Charge 3.0
