There are number of other features we’d like to see on a Poco F1 follow-up, such as an IR blaster, a big battery, relatively fast charging, and polished camera software.

The standard also requires pricier RF components. Counterpoint Research says that the mmWave Galaxy Note 20 Ultra costs ~10% more than the sub-6Ghz only variant in terms of total component costs. We’ve also seen the likes of the OnePlus 8 retailing for $100 more on Verizon due to the addition of mmWave support.

We wouldn’t expect wireless charging and a significant IP rating either, as this would add even more cost to the end product.
