Xiaomi made heads turn earlier this year with the launch of the first smartphone of its Poco sub-brand. Its first device, the Poco F1, featured a Snapdragon 845 processor while having a price tag of $300. That’s the same chipset you get in devices like the Galaxy S9. Xiaomi is now offering another variant of this device.
Xiaomi recently launched a sub-brand and its first device is perhaps the cheapest smartphone on the market with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. That’s the same processor that you’ll find in flagships like the Galaxy Note 9. It’s now available for pre-order in the United States. Interested customers should keep in mind that the device won’t support LTE in the U.S.
Xiaomi has launched a new sub-brand to better compete in the affordable segment. It’s sticking to its strategy of offering impressive specs at an aggressive price point. Xiaomi today announced the Pocophone F1, a $300 device that ships with the Snapdragon 845, the same processor that you find in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9.
