Xiaomi’s Poco F1 is already among the devices which offer a bigger bang for your buck than most others in this price segment. For starters, it comes with a flagship Snapdragon 845 processor which is an unusual sight for this price, and elements like internal heat dissipation system, Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, and IR face unlock simply makes the price unbelievable.
But just when you might be thinking the package has no room for being any more attractive, the Poco F1 has received a permanent price cut of Rs 1,000 on all models. With this, the smartphone now starts at Rs 19,999 (for 64GB) and contends for the title of the best smartphone under Rs 20,000.
The 128GB variant of the Poco F1 now comes for Rs 22,999 instead of Rs 23,999 earlier while the 256GB variant is now priced at Rs 27,999. Meanwhile, the Armoured Edition can now be bought for Rs 28,999. These prices are valid on purchases from Mi.com, Flipkart, and offline Mi Stores.
Obviously, these offers are not as sweet as the remarkable price cuts which the Poco F1 got during Flipkart’s recent Big Shopping Day sale, but are still appreciable and makes the deal a bit more interesting. Additionally, you can relieve yourself from the worry of high repair expenses by purchasing the accidental coverage for the Poco F1, starting at Rs 1,099.
Meanwhile, Poco F1 has been promised to receive an update to Android Pie, which is already available to beta users and the stable release is expected to come wrapped in Christmas greetings. However, I’m not very impressed with the update which misses out on crucial Android Pie features like Adaptive Brightness and Digital Wellbeing. Additionally, Poco is also likely to fix the ghost touch issues on the Poco F1 soon, which is appreciable.
If you’re okay with feeling a little left out when it comes to latest Android features such as Digital Wellbeing and Adaptive Battery, Poco F1 is surely the most compelling phone in this segment.
It really hurts… Why I purchased my poco on 1st sale…😫😫😫
Please atleast give us Pie update asap..!!

The price cut comes only after three months since the Poco F1 first went for sale and so it must hurt the initial buyers, but probably not as much as the faster charging on OnePlus 6T McLaren edition will hurt those who bought the OnePlus 6T.
Buy the Poco F1 from Flipkart (starts at Rs 19,999)
