Yesterday we told you that Xiaomi sub-brand POCO was launching a new phone in India soon. POCO hadn’t divulged any details about this new phone at that time, but, the company was reported to launch a new storage variant of POCO F1 Armoured Edition in India. Well, all those reports have turned out to be true as the company has indeed launched a new storage variant of the POCO F1 Armoured Edition in India.
The Armoured Edition is the most expensive model of the POCO F1 which comes with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. However, what sets the Armoured Edition apart from the regular models is its Kevlar back. Well, for those who want this Kevlar back but don’t want 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, POCO has launched a new variant of the POCO F1 Armoured Edition which comes with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
The Armoured Edition 6 GB RAM variant is priced higher than the regular model of POCO F1 coming with this same memory configuration. The regular model of POCO F1 with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage is priced at ₹22,999, whereas, the Armoured Edition with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage is priced at ₹23,999. That’s a ₹1000 extra.
With this, customers now have a total of five options to choose from – the regular models with 64, 128, and 256 GB storage, and, the Armoured Edition with 128 and 256 GB storage.
