The upcoming Xiaomi POCOPHONE landed at FCC with two variants, both featuring 6 GB of memory. However, one of them sports 64 GB of internal storage space, while the other offers 128 GB. The draft of the handset's back also reveals a vertical dual camera setup. Sadly, there is not much else to talk about yet.

Xiaomi seems to be very busy lately, and if the devices it is expected to launch in the second half of this year — such as the Mi Max 3 and Mi Mix 3 — are not enough, the Chinese brand is also preparing a whole-new family of handsets, or maybe even a sub-brand like Huawei's Honor. The upcoming device/brand is known as Xiaomi POCOPHONE for now and has just surfaced in a new FCC filing.

According to the FCC filing mentioned above, the upcoming Xiaomi POCOPHONE could be a new flagship. Although the processor it is still unknown, we know that two versions visited the United States certification authority. Both feature 6 GB of memory, while the amount of storage also seems in line with most flagships on the market nowadays: 64 GB and 128 GB.

In addition to the above, a draft showing the back of the handset also surfaced online thanks to Slashleaks. This image reveals a vertical dual camera setup on the back of the device and its dimensions: 151 x 76 mm and a 163 mm diagonal (5.94 x 2.99 in and a generous 6.4-inch diagonal).

Although the Xiaomi POCOPHONE has no official launch date yet, we might find out more about it sooner than expected. In the meantime, feel free to drop a comment about this new product name. Would you buy a handset (a massive phablet, by the looks of it) called POCOPHONE?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
