POCO F1 6GB Armoured Edition specifications
There aren’t any hardware differences between the Armoured Edition and the standard variant of the POCO F1. The Armoured Edition has a different back panel which is made from Kevlar armed fibre. That’s about the only difference between this and the standard 6GB variant.
The phone features a 6.18-inch FHD+ display with a notch that houses the front 20-megapixel camera, earpiece and an infrared camera for Face Unlock. It is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and gets a dual-rear camera setup with a primary 12-megapixel sensor paired with a 5-megapixel depth unit. A 4000mAh battery with fast charging keeps the handset chugging.
