Pocophone – the sub brand of Chinese tech leader Xiaomi has recently launched POCO F1 in India while the same variant is confirmed to be launched in international markets including Pakistan very soon with the brand name of Pocophone F1 .

The Pocophone F1 is considered to be the cheapest Snapdragon 845 smartphone with some true budget flagship specifications. A delicate design with trendy notched display and dual camera setup on the rear make Pocophone F1 the ultimate choice with affordable price tag.

Pocophone F1 – Splash Resistant & Quick Charge 4 Enabled

As Xiaomi’s official listing did not mention QC 4 on its maiden launch in India therefore it was considered that the POCO F1 supports Quick Charge 3. However, after weeks of its announcement, Xiaomi has come up revealing more and more details and says that the POCO F1 will support the latest fast charging technology by Qualcomm – Quick Charge 4.

Meanwhile, another good news is also there for those who wish to get Pocophone F1 on its arrival that the device is now announced to carry splash resistance features. It does not mean that it will survive long dips in water as it is not exactly a “water proof” device. It is P2i certified instead that means to be able to withstand minor daily spills or rain.

This has been revealed by POCO India on its Twitter handle that adds more value to the phone. 

Pocophone F1 – Durability Tests

While POCO India has created a hype before its international launch, the Pocophone F1 has been tested for its durability by a famous YouTuber Zack on his channel JerryRigEverything. As we know that the device comes in with a front glass and a plastic body with no hint of metal anywhere, so the tests conducted here won’t necessarily compete with any flagship in the market. However, price would certainly make the real difference.

Let us watch the video and see how really durable the Pocophone F1 is:


you must have noticed that even for a phone that is supposed to be “cheap”, POCO F1 did pretty well in this durability test. As seen in the video, the build material is hard enough to withstand most types of blows, as it didn’t bend at all even when the tester forced it with both hands. However, it did face problems in the scratch test for the rear body, but that can easily be avoided by using a simple cover which certainly comes with the phone in the box.

Let us wait for the Pocophone F1 entering Pakistan in coming weeks. Stay tuned to know more.
