The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is expected to be the company’s next flagship smartphone, and the unannounced device just received its Bluetooth certification, revealing some key specifications. These include Qualcomm’s best chipset yet, the Snapdragon 845, as well as a liquid-cooling system.
That’s right, the Pocophone F1 will come with a form of liquid-cooling. Though this isn’t exactly a new thing – Samsung, for one, had already done so with the Galaxy S7 – it’ll be interesting to see how this is implemented in the upcoming phone. According to the Pocophone F1’s description, the water-cooling system can supposedly help the Snapdragon 845 chipset to “sustain peak performance.”
Aside from that, the certification also details the Pocophone F1’s camera system. It will supposedly come with a 12MP + 5MP dual-camera system on the back, and the main sensor has dual-pixel autofocus too. As for the front-facing shooter, it’s a 20MP camera complete with Xiaomi’s “Super Pixel” technology, which is basically pixel binning.
Interestingly, the Pocophone F1’s front camera is complemented with an infrared illuminator and camera as well. This allows for the phone’s AI Face Unlock to work in both daytime and low light conditions. We imagine it would be similar to the Xiaomi Mi 8‘s implementation.
The Pocophone F1 currently does not have a release date yet, but it’s probably safe to assume it will be made official in the very near future – it’s said to be launching in Eastern Europe and India. As usual, it’s expected to be competitively priced too – standard affair for Xiaomi devices.
