You can say that Poco will be more or less on the lines of how a certain OnePlus (parent company BBK) or an Honor (parent company Huawei) operate around the world. Breaking from the stereotypes of its parent company Xiaomi and offering something extra especially with regards to affordable flagships. Additionally, the POCO F1 will also have facial recognition feature.

Unlike the Mi 8 SE, the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 retains the infrared face scanning tech found on the pricier Mi 8. The phone has a 6.28-inch screen with 19:9 aspect ratio.
