Our review of the Poco F1 concluded that it is indeed the best value for money smartphone you can buy. It competes with phones in the premium segment yet is priced competitively as a budget to mid-range device. However, now, this deal has turned even sweeter.
According to the Poco F1 listing on Flipkart and Mi.com, the smartphone's 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant has received a price cut of Rs 2,000. This means, down from the earlier price of Rs 22,999, the Poco F1 is now available for Rs 20,999. Notably, though, this price cut does not apply to the Armoured variant of the 128GB Poco F1 that comes with a Kevlar rear panel.
The prices of the base 6 GB RAM + 64 GB model and the 8 GB RAM variants remains unchanged.
Poco has once before also reduced the price of all the variants by Rs 2,000. While the phone was announced at Rs 21,999 for 6 GB RAM and 64 GB model, Rs 24,999 for 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant, and Rs 30,999 for the 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage option, the prices were soon reduced to Rs 19,999, Rs 22,999, and Rs 28,999 respectively.
