The long wait for a true Poco F1 successor is finally over

Poco's latest phones are hotly anticipated, especially with rumors abound that we could be looking at a proper successor to the sub-brand's first phone, the Poco F1 with its incredible price-to-performance ratio. And today is finally the day Xiaomi is making good on that promise, though the latest entry to the line isn't the F2 — we're skipping straight ahead to the F3 and its slightly weaker sister model, the X3 Pro.

Poco X3 Pro specs leaked in store listing with unknown Snapdragon SoC

Poco X3 Pro specs leaked in store listing with unknown Snapdragon SoC

Earlier this week renders of a new Poco X3 Pro were spotted from familiar leakers. It seems like a release for this boosted version of the Poco X3 NFC, which has been out for about half a year, is immanent: now it's showing up in retailer listings, complete with a set of specs. It's mostly similar to the already-released device, but the text teases more RAM and storage, and a Snapdragon SoC we haven't heard of before.

A new alleged leak shows a Lite variant of the Mi 11, which caused a stir when it launched internationally last month.

Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G review: Parts bin special

For the last couple years, Xiaomi’s been releasing its flagships lineup on a tic-toc cycle, with a volley early in the year, and another round — the T models — later that same year. For example, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro landed in February 2020, followed by the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro in September 2020. So far this year, we got the Mi 11 in January, with a rumored Mi 11 Ultra coming soon. And that’s not including the “Lite” models.

10 great MIUI 12 features you should know about

10 great MIUI 12 features you should know about

Today, Xiaomi is known as one of the most recognized smartphone manufacturers and its value-for-money offerings have made huge inroads in several markets around the world. But a lesser-known fact about the Chinese company is that its first-ever product was not a smartphone, but MIUI: the software that runs on most of their phones today.

Between then and now, a lot has changed and MIUI is no longer a custom ROM developed for the Google Nexus One. It’s a full-fledged skin that’s on millions of devices out there and it also happens to be amongst the most feature-rich —  I can attest to this with my experience of using MIUI 12 on several phones.
