Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi’s POCO F1 smartphone garnered a lot of appreciation for offering the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC at a very affordable price. However, the price of the smartphone fell in the Rs 20,000 segment and maybe because Xiaomi has created its loyalists in the entry-level and budget segments, POCO F1 did not do as well as it was expected to. Probably this is the reason that Xiaomi keeps on offering a discount on the smartphone every now and then. If you want an affordable smartphone with Snapdragon 845 SoC, and don’t mind Xiaomi‘s bloatware-filled MIUI skin, then you can go for the POCO F1 smartphone that is available at a price cut as of now.
The company has slashed the price of its POCO F1 smartphone. Post the price cut, the base variant of POCO F1, that comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, can be bought at Rs 17,999. The revised pricing of the device is visible on Mi.com as well as on Flipkart. We should mention that the price cut is a part of the POCO Days celebration that will stay valid until June 9. It is also worth adding that recently, the company also reduced the pricing of its 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant to Rs 20,999, which earlier cost Rs 22,999.
Xiaomi’s sub-brand POCO has also tweeted that its POCO F1 smartphone with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage is now selling in India for Rs 17,999. Prior to this, the smartphone was available for Rs 19,999 in the country. So, Xiaomi has reduced the pricing of the handset by Rs 2,000. The Chinese smartphone brand has also specified that the discount is a part of the ongoing POCO Days Sale, that will end on June 9. You can buy the POCO F1 smartphone at the discounted pricing from Flipkart as well as Mi.com.
