Xiaomi has taken over the Indian smartphone industry by storm. The company's competitively-priced phones with premium specs have helped the Chinese maker dominate the Indian market by taking over giants like Samsung. Now, one of the best premium phones by its sub-brand Poco is set to dominate sales briefly.
Xiaomi Poco F1, which is the cheapest Snapdragon 845 smartphone, is all set to receive a generous discount in India. Poco India announced on Twitter that its Poco F1 smartphone will be available with a generous discount of up to Rs 5,000 from December 6 till December 8. Interested customers can avail the offer on Mi.com and Flipkart exclusively.
But the tweet doesn't mention if the discount will apply to all the models or just the top-end model. Poco F1 comes in 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB storage options. The base model is priced at Rs 20,999, the 6GB+128GB variant costs Rs 23,999 and the high-end 8GB+256GB model costs Rs 29,999.
Even if the maximum discount is applied to the high-end variant, the price of the Poco F1 would generously drop to around Rs 25,000. The lower-end models are also likely to get discounted during the 3-day sale even if it is not by Rs 5,000.
The latest offer is part of Poco's promise of "3 Masterstrokes". The company has only revealed the first one and the other two will likely be shared soon.
It's worth noting that such offers generally attract a lot of attention. Buyers would be eagerly waiting to avail steep discounts on products, the Poco F1 in this case, which will be available in limited quantities. So if you're seriously considering availing the upcoming offer, make sure you log in to Flipkart or Mi.com on the day the offer goes live and be quick with it.
