Xiaomi may have called it a day with the launch of the Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE. However, the company’s newly-formed sub-brands are all the craze moving forward. Following the launch of the Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE, two alleged “Poco” devices have appeared on Geekbench suggesting the development of what now seems to be dubbed as the Poco F1 Lite.
Based on the leak that has been spotted on Geekbench, it seems like the alleged Poco F1 Lite would feature a Snapdragon 660 SoC rather than a 675 or 710 SoC and would feature 4GB of RAM. The device managed to score a respectable 1341 and 4830 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. Out of the two tests spotted, one of the tests named the alleged device the Xiaomi “Uranus” for some reason.
Whether the leak is true or not is yet to be seen. But by the first looks of it, it seems to be a surprising launch if it does happen.
And while we wouldn’t be speculating the rest of the specifications regarding the device due to how fishy it seems, it would be a huge bummer if the device finally hits the market. After all, Xiaomi’s Poco brand is best known for its ground-breaking budget flagships rather than their mid-rangers. Best leave that for Xiaomi’s newly-formed Redmi sub-brand.
While it may be a possibility that we may see a Snapdragon 660 SoC in the upcoming $99 Redmi 7 this Monday, it seems highly unlikely that we may get to see a Snapdragon 660-powered Poco device at this point in time when we’re about four to five months away from the launch of the Poco F2 (concept renders).
