Connectivity and ports

In the world where everything is connected and speed is important, the Pocophone F1 falls short. Instantly off the bat – the Pocophone F1 does not support LTE-A CA, which means there is no 4G+ support.

On the other hand, the Pocophone F1 does support 802.11ac WiFi – which is good.

Other than that, the Pocophone F1 does not have IR blaster for remote control. However, there is an IR blaster and receiver at the notch for face unlock. It works surprisingly well and yes – it is super speedy.

At the top of the Pocophone F1, there’s nothing to be seen other than a microphone and the 3.5mm audio jack. Looking at the bottom, however, we can find the microphone and speaker grills together with the USB-C port. It only works in USB 2.0 standard, by the way. There’s a stylish notification LED right above the USB-C port as well – which does give its design some style points.

On a side note, the earpiece on the notch also doubles as a front-facing speaker, albeit at a low volume with sub-par sound quality. Still, at least the Pocophone F1 has a front-facing speaker – unlike the Honor Play.

On the left side of the Pocophone F1 is where the card tray slot is found. Here we can see a the common configuration of SIM1 + hybrid slot, where the hybrid can house another nano SIM or microSD.
