POCO F1 price in India slashed temporarily to Rs 17,999 on Flipkart and Mi.com

The discount on the base 6 GB + 64 GB storage variant of the POCO F1 will be available till 9 June.

The Poco F1 arrived in August 2018 and even after a year now continues to offer unmatched value for what it packs. The phone which normally retails at a price of Rs 19,999 has now received yet another price cut in India — selling for Rs 17.999.

This price cut isn't permanent, even though the launch of the Redmi K20 Pro appears imminent. The POCO India team took to its official Twitter handle to announce that the base 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage variant of the POCO F1 is now retailing for Rs 17,999 on both mi.com and Flipkart.

The Xiaomi backed brand though does note that this price reduction is part of a promotional sale which ends on 9 June.
