When you think about it, the Pocophone F1 was sensational because of what it offers to the user: a lot of spec for not a lot of money. It is sought after in India and parts of Asia. In these emerging markets, the Pocophone F1 is king of the bang for buck smartphone.
Here are a few reasons why:
High End Internal Specs
The elephant in the room is the specs of the Pocophone F1. This is not just your average affordable device because it sports flagship internals. Powering the device is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor and either 6 or 8GB of RAM. Not only that, it also has up to 256GB of internal storage.
Pretty beefy when you think that you’d pay more than double the price from competing smartphones from Samsung and Apple.
You may think it’s a gimmick but it works. The Pocophone F1 uses advanced cooling tech keep your hand happy by not making the phone go hot.
Prolonged gaming sessions and even heavy multitasking can result in too much heat for a smartphone. As such, Pocophone added in a liquid cooling system to the POCO F1 called LiquidCool. Basically, they inserted a water vapor cooled copper heat pipe on top of the device’s chipset to facilitate better cooling.
Infrared Face Unlock
You want the fancy unlock features of the high end smartphones? You can have it with the Pocophone F1. Yes, you can swipe and enter a PIN code but why do that when you can use your face and some invisible light rays?
The F1 features a more secure and capable face unlock technology. That’s because it uses Infrared scanners instead of just its front cameras. This provides better accuracy even in low-light conditions.
It’s so cheap, you can’t pass it. You may argue that it’s far from being a feature but for better or worse, the Pocophone F1 remains cheaper than flagship Android or iOS smartphone in the time of its release.
While technically not a feature, it’s hard not to mention the amazing pricing of the F1 in India. It is expected to get launched in different parts of the world with very competitive pricing as well.
