Design and Display

The most obvious price cut featured comes in the design of the smartphone which is plastic on the ordinary model. Although sturdy, a plastic is only still a plastic no matter how good it looks and is also a bad conductor of heat. However, the issue have been rectified by featuring vapour chamber with a network of copper pipes to cool the internals. You could also opt for an ‘Armoured’ version which has Kevlar covering instead of plastic.
There is the notch which looks like an iPhone X cutout housing the infrared illuminator, camera, earpiece that also doubles has a speaker and other sensors. It packs audio jack, infrared blaster, USB Type-C and bottom firing speaker all on the smartphone.
Premium quality is brought to the screen on the smartphone too with its 1080p IPS panel. Not the best display around but it does offer a decent colourful and radiant visuals. Large display is the rave at the moment, and the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 delivers a substantial 6.18-inch of it in a 18.7:9 aspect ratio.

To the front of the smartphone you will find a 20MP f/2.0 aperture camera capable of shooting HDR. The smartphone comes with electronic image stabilization (EIS) but doesn’t have OIS
