Xiaomi Pocophone F1 launch date confirmed as video unboxing leaks

The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is shaping up to be the worst kept secret ever - be that on purpose or otherwise. The phone to premiere Xiaomi's new POCO (or Pocophone, according to the leak) lineup has popped up again, this time in a crispy video unboxing that shows off the F1 in its entirety.

The video shows a proper unboxing, showing off the retail package and accessories, and then powers on the phone. We see the new POCO MIUI theme as well as all the sides of the Pocophone F1.

It's a plastic-built phone with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD, Xiaomi's Face scanning tech inside the notch on the front and a dual camera on the back.

In related news, Xiaomi has confirmed that it will announce the POCO F1 in India on August 22 at a special event in New Delhi.

Xiaomi's affordable Snapdragon 845-powered phone will launch in Europe and in India and it's rumored to be the cheapest smartphone equipped with the flagship chipset.

The rest of the specs include 6GB of RAM, a 12MP main camera with a 5MP auxiliary one for portrait mode shots, a 20MP selfie camera and a 4,000mAh battery.
