Xiaomi launched the POCO F1 in the month of August last year. The budget flagship smartphone was well received because of its top of the line specifications and an affordable price.

Geekbench listing of an unreleased smartphone, the Xiaomi POCO F1 Lite has leaked which confirms most of its specifications.
Hmm I'm not aware of a Lite…— Alvin Tse (@atytse) March 15, 2019
Even though the Head of Pocophone Global, Alvin Tse replied to iGyaan’s tweet saying that he is not aware of a Lite version, evidence suggests otherwise, as the Geekbench listing explicitly lists the name of the device as the POCO F1 Lite.

The POCO F1 Lite will be the next smartphone from the sub-brand of Xiaomi. While the specifications of the device have been leaked, there is no information about its physical appearance. However, it is expected to feature a similar design language to its elder sibling, which has a polycarbonate body and a wide notch on top of the display. The listing reveals that the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 660 SoC which is manufactured using 14nm fabrication process. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. Interestingly, the same processor can be found on the company’s newly launched Redmi Note 7. The POCO F1 Lite has been mentioned to have 4GB of RAM, but there may be a variant with a higher RAM capacity as well.
The listing claims the CPU of the POCO F1 Lite has a clock speed of 1.61GHz which is lower than the Redmi Note 7’s base clock speed of 1.8GHz. Therefore, the underclocked speed is assumed to result in lower performance than the latter. Also, Xiaomi can tune the clock speed of the Poco F1 Lite before its official launch. This smartphone registers a single core score of 1619 and a multi-core score of 5138 on the same platform.
Notably, another smartphone from Xiaomi has also been leaked on Geekbench. Codenamed the Xiaomi Uranus, it features similar specifications to the leaked POCO F1 Lite. It may be possible that this is the same device which will be released under a different name in certain markets across the world.
The pricing and availability of the POCO F1 Lite are not known yet, but the Geekbench listing suggests its launch is imminent. Xiaomi is known to price its smartphones aggressively, so the smartphone may be priced under Rs. 10,000 in India.
