The POCO F1 comes in three configurations – 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and, 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage. And, the company has announced that the 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage variant is now available for purchase through open sale in India.


POCO made this announcement on Twitter. The 6 GB RAM + 128 GB variant is now available through open sale, which means you can buy it anytime you want. No need to wait for flash sales and wish to be lucky enough to be able to buy the phone during the flash sale. The 6 GB RAM + 128 GB variant is priced at ₹23,999 and can be purchased anytime from Mi.com or Flipkart.

While the 6 GB RAM + 128 GB variant is now available for purchase through open sale in India, the 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage variants are still sold through flash sales in the country. However, POCO has said that these two variants, along with the Armoured Edition, will also go on open sale in India soon.

The POCO F1 is a phone that offers great value for money. It comes with the flagship Snapdragon 845 SoC with 6 and 8 GB RAM options, along with a huge 4000 mAh battery that should get you through a day with ease. The smartphone also comes with dual cameras at the back.

POCO recently also confirmed that the F1 is splash resistant and supports Quick Charge 4.0. However, the adapter that comes bundled along is a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter which means you will have to buy the Quick Charge 4.0 adapter separately if you want faster charging speeds.
