The phone runs on a modified version of MIUI 9.6 called MIUI for Poco, on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. As far as the overall look is concerned, it seems to have been inspired by the popular NOVA launcher. It packs a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 capability. It’s also due to receive an update to Android 9.0 Pie within the next three months.

Other features include stereo speakers and LiquidCool Technology, which by its name, prevents the phone from heating up too much when gaming.

Now comes the most interesting part of all . The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 will be priced at $300 for the 6GB/64GB variant, $345 for  6GB/128GB, and $415 for 8GB/256GB. There’s also an armored version, which only comes in an 8GB/256GB variant, and will set you back $430. The device will be available on sale online on mi.com and Flipkart starting August 29.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
