One of the main selling points of the Poco F1 was that it launched with an affordable price tag, but that hasn’t stopped Xiaomi from slashing the price several times. After the latest round of discounts, the 6/128GB model costs INR 19,000.
This not much more than the base 6/64GB model, which is INR 18,000. The price difference is just enough to buy a microSD card, so you can get 64GB now and add more storage later, but keep in mind that internal memory is usually faster and play nicer with some apps.
The price of the 8/256GB model fell the steepest – a whopping INR 5,000 discount since the last round of price cuts means that the top-specced model now costs INR 23,000. There’s some good news for fans of carbon fiber too, the premium on the Armored Edition is gone and it now costs the same as the Red, Black and Blue colors.
I agree. But some customers like me would be like "There's your 50$ - now give me IP68" And about OS... it's strange... MIUI still can't quite match OneUI or EMUI... Can't they just go with stock Android?
Will be 50 $ more expensive. Agree. Every phone today had to be sealed. Other way, replacing battery on poco is 5 minutes job.. (Opening for all purposes.)
