Shanti Dope, 28 Jul 2018Cheapest, so I expect it is below $400 at least. But I feel bad... moreFirst of all expect a lot of marketing(and "fake news" :) for this new Xiaomi sub brand.

Expect a 460-480$+ price tag(if the hardware leeks are correct and that price isn't really "poco" for a plastic build) and also expect big cuts in build quality (plastic? really?!) and screen quality (screen quality is actually the area were Xiaomi is usually "saving costs").

It was released in Romania the price was 1999RON aprox 430 € the spec are that in the info. It has a 4000mAh battery QC 3.0 with the charger 3.0 a small led in the center of the chin autohide notch and mui 9.6 and the back is plastic

"AI face unlock"

Oh man, the obsession to put the word AI on everything is getting absurd!!

Shanti Dope, 29 Jul 2018What if they reduce it all the way down to $300? I surely hope ... moreThey could do something like Oppo Realme 1 which sells quite low for a Helio P60 device. Removed fingerprint, use single camera only, HD+ screen, microusb 2.0. 3GB/32GB variant only. Remove all fancy feature. Plastic built, no gorilla glass. Maybe could get that low price for SD845 device. Maybe. Though, compromising on quality isnt exactly a good thing.

I surely hope it happens, but I have no expectations. And yeah, it wouldn't make sense to price this phone below $400 but have way better SoC. Maybe in other areas like cameras and battery?

sayan95, 28 Jul 2018bro Zenfone 5z has many other features eg better camera with OIS... moreYes that's true though.
However, I don't like Xiaomi's approach here, releasing many models at different times, and this late when people have probably bought the Zenfone 5Z or OnePlus 6 already.

Making it the cheapest but still costs more than other alternatives

Zte blade is best 130 dollars at Mediamarkt Turkey

Dear Xiaomi, Do not create phones with depth sensor in the future. However good the depth sensor is, the portrait mode will lose edge detection in some pictures. So either go for a single camera or go for a wide or telephoto lens _/\_

With liquid cooling will be the best to use for gaming and emulators as the Sony PS2 emulator

Welp, I still prefer their hottest Mi8 SE though.

BrendonF, 28 Jul 2018One big difference is the LCD display that the Pocophone uses. I... moreThe difference is not that big there must be something else and if rumor of liquid cooling turns true I dont think switch to LCD is going to be enough

Ram, 28 Jul 20185 mp secondary cam.. thumbs downapparently it's not actually a camera meant for standalone use, though, as opposed to other phones' telephoto, wide angle or whatever modules. just a depth sensor, for bokeh effects maybe? consider it a single camera phone for all other intents and purposes, i guess

Shanti Dope, 28 Jul 2018Cheapest, so I expect it is below $400 at least. But I feel bad... moreI expect the same but it will destroy Mi 8 SE sales with SD710 which is already around $420. This Pocophone with SD845 selling less than that? Wow. Xiaomi must be killing itself.

If this released with Mi8's HDR amoled and without notch, I'm buying in a heartbeat.

Shanti Dope, 28 Jul 2018Cheapest, so I expect it is below $400 at least. But I feel bad... morebro Zenfone 5z has many other features eg better camera with OIS and stereo speakers also since it is a Xiaomi flagship expect the omission of important features like 3.5mm headset jack and micro SD card expansion

Shanti Dope, 28 Jul 2018Cheapest, so I expect it is below $400 at least. But I feel bad... moreWhile I hope its below $400, an earlier report by GSMarena put the price around $500 which is not really the cheapest SD 845 device.
