According to a tweet by POCO India's Twitter handle, a new POCO device is expected to make its entry in India tomorrow, that is, December 25.

On the other hand, there is also speculation online that this "New POCO" is merely a new color SKU for the F1.

Xiaomi Poco F1 has received a new Armoured Edition variant that comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The latest development comes days after Xiaomi sub-brand Poco announced a price drop of the Poco F1 in the country, and even sooner after it announced something "new" would be arriving soon.

For those who don't know, the POCO F1's Armoured Edition is made up of Kevlar and is now available with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has launched a new variant of its Poco F1 smartphone today. The smartphone is available for Rs 23,999 which is Rs 1000 more than the standard 6GB RAM/128GB storage model of the phone. It runs on MIUI for Poco which is Xiaomi's native custom UI with a Poco launcher - based on Android 8.1 Oreo - featuring an App drawer and customisations. At the launch event, the company touted the Kevlar back used on the Armoured Edition is way more durable than the glass, but the sad part is it doesn't look as good as glass smartphones. As it is just a variant addition, the Xiaomi Poco F1 remains the same in terms of specifications.

To recall, the POCO F1 sports a 6.18-inch Full HD+ full-screen display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The Snapdragon 845 is the driving force of the smartphone.

As said before, the Poco F1 flaunts a sturdy shell on the back with a dual camera and a fingerprint sensor below it. On the front, the Poco F1 includes a 20-megapixel selfie shooter paired with soft LED flash and AI features. The Poco F1 includes a primary camera of 12MP with a f/1.9 aperture on the back while the secondary camera is of 5MP which is responsible for clicking depth shots. Packed with 4000 mAh battery, it also supports 18W charging and Quick Charge 3.
