Xiaomi decided to power this device using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 system chip, including a very fast Octa-Core CPU running at 2.8 gigahertz and a big 8 GB RAM. A key aspect of the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is the 256 GB astonishing internal storage and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about filling the cellphone.

This phone is a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 6.35 ounces. This phone is just 0.35" thick, making its way into the thinnest cellphones podium.
