However, today the company officially confirmed this, by sharing the teaser poster on its account. There isn’t much known about the upcoming device as yet but has been predicted based on its earlier leaks and rumors, the device won’t come like a whole new device instead, most of the specs you will find on the device would be similar to the POCO F1.

We expect the new Play device come at least up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. For smooths gaming on the device, the Xiaomi Play smartphone could be powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor with LiquidCool technology.
