POCO F1 Lite Spotted in Geekbench. Comes with SD660 (orSD636)
Xiaomi‘s sub-brand POCO launched the Poco F1 last year in August and was a massive success ranking in million of sales. The Poco F2 was spotted a few months back but that turned out to be fake.

Competition will be fierce as the recently launched Redmi Note 7 Pro and Samsung M30 provides some impressive specs.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a 48MP primary rear camera which captures impressive details because of its large sensor. On the other hand, the Samsung M30 provides a triple camera setup along with an AMOLED display on front. It will be hard for the Poco F1 Lite to outshine these competitors.
