Xiaomi’s Poco F1, despite its share of problems, has been one of the most popular smartphones ever made by the company. While the Poco F1 can arguably be called the smartphone which offers more value for each penny than any other from a renowned company, Xiaomi has kept potential buyers even more interested with loads of discounts.
After offering head-turning discounts last month for Diwali, Poco has announced yet another offer which will be valid for Flipkart’s Big Shopping Days from December 6 to 8. Along with Flipkart, the offers will also be available during the same period on Xiaomi’s official marketplace Mi.com.
You can get up to Rs 3,000 off on Poco F1 and that, on top of the already attractive pricing, seems like a steal deal. However, Poco’s and Xiaomi’s quoted prices and claims about up to Rs 5,000 off are misleading since that is on the MRP, which the phone has never been sold at. So if you do the math it’s quite a bit less than Rs 5,000. The 64GB, 128GB, and the 256GB variants are available for Rs 20,999, Rs 23,999, and Rs 25,999 respectively.
Thus, if you buy the Poco F1 during these three days, you’ll be able to save Rs 1,000 on the lowest storage variant and Rs 2,000 on the 128 GB variant, and Rs 3,000 on the 256GB variant.
However, it is good to see the 64GB version of Poco F1 earning a discount too – and this could be for two (although poles apart) reasons – either Poco is not selling enough units, possibly due to its issues, or it is selling enough to make decent profit and still sell these devices at such attractive prices.
Besides this, you can also get 10% additional discount if you have an HDFC Bank debit or credit card. Moreover, like always, there would be certain EMI and exchange offers which you can make use of, to get rid of your old smartphone and get the Poco F1. Hopefully, the screen issues will be resolved by Xiaomi in an upcoming update while Android Pie is on its way too.
