Xiaomi has today announced on the Chinese social media platform Weibo that the manufacturer will be launching a fresh fun category tomorrow at 10:00 AM. On its own website, the manufacturer teased the fresh launch saying “I unilaterally reported that this should be my greatest wanted Christmas gift. Look at [you] at 10 o’clock tomorrow.”
Going by the teaser, it seems to be that the company is teasing the launch of Mi Perform since this is a fresh category for the manufacturer and the game “Play” resembles fun that the company is teasing.
Gossips suggest that the Mi Perform smartphone is the rebranded variant of Pocophone F1 for the Chinese market. Announced, we announced that Xiaomi may perhaps hold a release event for the Mi Pay between December 17 and December 26.
Xiaomi had first launched the Poco F1 in the Indian market in August and was later launched in other markets as Pocophone F1. Recently, the company unveiled that it has sold over 700,000 units of the Poco F1 in the past three months.
As for the technical specs, the Poco F1 has a 6.18-inch IPS LCD notched display that produces Full HD+ resolution and a layer of Gorilla Glass for protection from minor scratches. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 flagship cpu and comes with LiquidCool tech.
As for the photography, the device comes with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 primary scanner, coupled with a 5-megapixel secondary digital camera on the back screen. On the front facet, there’s a 20-megapixel selfie camera powered with artificial intelligence for capturing enhanced selfie images.
The cameraphone comes with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal memory, depending on the version. It runs on the company’s MIUI with Poco Launcher, based on Android 8.1 Oreo running system and is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that supports Fast Charge 4.0 fast charging tech.
To know for sure what’s up the company’s sleeves, we’ll have to wait till tomorrow when Xiaomi formally uncovered its ‘fun’ product.
