Xiaomi sub-brand Poco is apparently working on a new budget-friendly smartphone. According to new information online, Poco might launch a Lite version of the Poco F1. Keeping in mind that it will be a watered down version of the Poco F1, reports online have claimed that the new device will be called Poco F1 Lite.
The report comes when there are speculations about the next-gen of the Poco F1, dubbed as Poco F2, that could be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. The Poco F1 Lite was spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench revealing some key features about the device. According to the listing, the Poco F1 Lite is expected to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC on board coupled with 4GB of RAM and Android 9.0 Pie.
The device, however, is reported to score quite low on single core and multi-core tests compared to results from other Snapdragon 660 powered devices. The overall results, in fact, are more comparable to Snapdragon 636 powered Note 5 Pro. This listing was spotted right after another rumored Xiaomi device, the “Xiaomi Uranus”, was spotted on Geekbench.
The second device was originally spotted by Nashville Chatterclass, and according to the report, it is likely to be the same device as the Poco F1 Lite. This is because the benchmark score and the specifications on both the devices appear to be the same. Nevertheless, the Geekbench results listing is not concrete proof and the specifications of the device can only be confirmed through the company itself.
