With the POCO F1, Xiaomi had delivered a game changer handset that defied all norms of the smartphone industry. The idea of a getting a smartphone with Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chip for a price of around Rs 21,000 sounded insane. But Xiaomi did that and since then, has been hogging attention on a global level. To add a cherry to the cake, they often keep on offering discounts on the F1, which results in selling the phone at prices where other manufacturers struggle with their midrange offerings. And now, they have again announced considerable discounts on F1.
Flipkart is hosting a mega sale event by the name of Big Shopping Days from 6th December to 8th December. Under the sale, many smartphones from various brands will get huge discounts on them. Xiaomi is also cashing in on the opportunity and is offering the POCO F1 at highly discounted prices. Additionally, the discount offers also extend to purchases made from Mi.com.
Xiaomi is offering discounts on three variants of the POCO F1. The base variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is getting a discount of Rs 2,000 and is now selling at Rs 19,999. This makes it great value over its competitors, especially when you consider the specifications that are usually the norm in the price bracket – most handsets at this price often content themselves with Snapdragon 636 or Snapdragon 660 equivalent chipsets.
The mid-tier variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage also gets a discount of around Rs 3,000 and is now selling for Rs 21,999.
