Xiaomi’s upcoming Pocophone F1 has been making plenty of appearances on the rumour mill. The phone has leaked online through various sources such as FCC certification or Bluetooth SIG certification, but none of these sources was able to give a complete list of features that the device may come equipped with. However, a new listing of the Pocophone has surfaced on a Belarusian online store that takes the veil off device’s spec sheet.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1: Pre-orders Listing Reveals Pricing
The pre-orders page on Belarusian online store lists the pricing of the upcoming Xiaomi Pocophone F1 at 899 Belarusian Ruble (approx. Rs. 30,752). The 899 pricing has been tagged as ‘Super Price’ while the total price of the smartphone is 999 Belarusian Ruble (approx. Rs. 34,178). This means that Super Price is the discounted rate for the buyers who pre-order the phone while the total price hints at the launch pricing of the phone. There is no confirmation from Xiaomi regarding the details mentioned on the website. Moreover, the product image on the listing shows a smartphone under the white veil.
The listing also states,“Leave pre-order for Xiaomi Pocophone F1 (6/64) right now and get your smartphone on September 1st.” The phone has been listed in Graphite colour option.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1: Listed Specifications
According to the specs sheet on the website, the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 features a 6.18-inches Full HD+ IPS display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clubbed with Adreno 630 GPU. It packs 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage options. There is no mention of the expansion limit for the internal storage, but given the presence of Hybrid Dual-SIM slot, we can expect the Pocophone F1 to allow further expansion of up to 256GB via microSD card.
For optics, the phone sports a 12MP+5MP dual camera setup at the rear with f/1.75 aperture, LED flash, Dual autofocus, Dual Pixel, and AI features.

Xiaomi Pocophone F1: Expected Launch Date
We previously reported on Xiaomi’s plan to launch a new phone in India under a sub-brand called ‘Pocophone.’ At that time we expected Xiaomi to launch the phone in India first, but now with the pre-order page surfacing on the internet, we wonder if India would be the first market where Xiaomi brings out the Pocophone F1.
Besides, the pre-order page says that buyers will receive the phone by September 1, which means that Xiaomi will launch the phone within this month. We are yet to get a confirmation on the Pocophone F1 from Xiaomi, until then, it is advisable to take all the information with a pinch of salt.
