Last week, Jai Mani, Xiaomi’s product manager for India, took to Facebook to announce POCO, a new sub-brand from the Chinese technology company. Mani, who has had a quiet inning at Xiaomi over the past few months, has been tasked with shaping this new brand.

While Poco hasn't revealed the specifications of the Poco F1, an initial listing on a Belarusian online store suggested that the handset will come with a 6.18-inch full-HD+ display that will an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. The Poco F1 is also rumoured to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC along with a liquid cooling system. Codenamed Beryllium, the new model is also said to run Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI on top and come with a 4,000mAh battery. It is also reported to have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor and a dual rear camera setup, supporting optical zoom. A Bluetooth SIG certification also previously hinted at a combination of a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with a dual-pixel autofocus lens. Moreover, a recent video preview of the smartphone also showed its performance on AnTuTu benchmark in which the hardware scored 258,149 points.

“Xiaomi has a huge fan following that can feed into POCO,” Faisal Kawoosa, an analyst with CMR (CyberMedia Research) told indianexpress.com over mail. “It also has a very strong online presence. These two are positives for POCO to start with. Everything out there is speculation unless it comes officially. But, looking at Xiaomi, it has come a long way in improving the product built. So all that learnings must have gone to POCO as well,” he said.

Xiaomi still seen as budget smartphone maker

Xiaomi is perceived as the coolest smartphone company around, media-friendly and open to suggestions from fans. The company sells millions of smartphones each quarter. But step back a bit and you realise that Xiaomi is stuck in its image of being just a budget smartphone maker. That is not a great position to be in as a smartphone brand, at least not in the long run.As announced through the Twitter account of Poco India, Xiaomi's Poco will launch the Poco F1 on August 22. The brand that is led by former Google executive and Xiaomi's Lead Product Manager Jai Mani is hosting an event in New Delhi to announce the formal launch.
