It seems Xiaomi is bombarding new smartphones every month. And the new device launches doesn’t seem to end now as Xiaomi has at least three smartphones in the row for the launch now. The first two are the Mi A2 duo which will be unveiled on July 24 and the mysterious POCOPHONE F1. Now, as the days pass by, new leaks about the latter mentioned device surface more on the web.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 will seemingly be cheap as chips… listing in eastern Euroland for ~420 Euro (6/64GB) and ~460 Euro (6/128GB) (prices converted). If it really has an SDM845 that pricing would be really impressive for a device with a 5,99in 2160x1080px screen.
