The tweet does not mention any particular date nor does it reveal whether this is a successor to the Poco F1 or a new variant of the current phone. So, it is expected that the company will either will bring the successor that could debut as the Poco F2 or a new variant of Poco F1. Since we have not seen any leaks regarding the Poco F2, it is highly expected that Xiaomi will bring a new variant of Poco f1.
Late last month, as per a tweet by tipster Ishan Agarwal, Poco F1 6GB RAM variant with 64GB and 128GB of internal storage will soon come with a Kevlar back. As of now only the 8GB + 256GB variant of the Poco F1 has been launched with a Kevlar back (Armored Edition).
The Poco F1 was launched with a starting price of Rs. 20,999 in August this year.. However recently, Poco F1 received a permanent price cut and brought its base variant to as low as Rs 19,999. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage can be purchased at Rs 22,999. The 8GB/256GB version and its Armoured edition are available for as low as Rs 27,999 and Rs 28,999 respectively.
With a starting price of Rs 19,999, the Poco F1 is the cheapest smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset. It features a 6.18-inch Full HD+ notch display with 2246 x 1080 pixel resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. There is a dual rear camera setup with a combination of 12-megapixel primary Sony IMX363 sensor with dual pixel autofocus, with dual LED Flash, 1.4μm pixel size and a 5-megapixel secondary Samsung sensor. It has a 20-megapixel selfie camera along with support for IR face unlock feature.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clocked at up to 2.8 GHz powers the device with Adreno 630 GPU. The device is backed up by 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. The phone has also started receiving an MIUI 10 based on Android Pie.
