Xiaomi's Poco F1 smartphone was available at its lowest price last week and those who missed out on buying the cheapest Snapdragon 845-powered smartphone for Rs 4,000 cheaper can get a decent discount on their purchase. Poco India announced on Saturday that it had slashed the price of all Poco F1 variants by Rs 1,000.
In case you're wondering if you need to rush to get this discount, Poco F1's latest discount is a permanent price cut, which means the cheapest smartphone to come with flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset is now cheaper in India. Poco F1 now starts at Rs 19,999 for the base model with 6GB+64GB configuration.
If that's too low for your need storage needs, the Rs 1,000 off extends to 128GB variant as well, which is now available for Rs 22,999 instead of Rs 23,999. For power-hungry users, the high-end variant of Poco F1 with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage can be bought for as low as Rs 27,999. Interestingly, if you had your eyes set on the 256GB Armoured Edition, it is now up for grabs for Rs 28,999, down from its Rs 29,999 price tag.
The permanent price cut comes as a part of celebrating Poco India's successful milestone in India. The company said it sold 700,000 units of Poco F1 to date, which is an impressive feat considering it is not one of Xiaomi's budget smartphones. The premium spec-sheet with a mid-range price tag certainly strikes an unwavering appeal here.
"POCO Fans, the celebrations are on! We're marking the 700K user milestone with the permanent price of Rs 1000 off across all variants of #POCOF1!" Poco India wrote in its tweet announcing the price cut.

While this is certainly great news for new customers, those who've already bought the device can be excited about Android 9.0 Pie coming to the device soon. In fact, the company's head of product for Pocophone, Jay Mani confirmed that Poco F1 will receive Android Q.
