Poco did not exactly reveal the number of smartphones it sold. But, if the amount is over 200 crores, then it’s pretty clear that they sold at least 68,000 devices. Here we are talking about the top variant. Now, assuming that the devices sold were all base variants, then they probably sold up to 1 lakh devices.
Poco F1 Specifications
The Poco F1 has four variants. The base variant offers 6GB of RAM and 64 GB storage and is priced at Rs 20,999. The second variant, priced at Rs 23,999, offers 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The top variant comes with a 8GB RAM and 256GB storage and costs Rs 28,999. The fourth variant has same features as the third variant, however, it comes with an additional Kevlar coated back. It is priced at Rs 29,999.
On top of that, there’s a 4,000 mAh battery, headphone jack, Android 8.1 Oreo, and USB-C. Up front is also a 6.18-inch FHD notched display and a 20MP selfie camera, as well as a 12MP/5MP rear camera setup.
It has other features to add to its name. It is liquid cooled, which neglects the chances of heating up and ensures that the processor is always running smoothly. But there’s one area where the Poco F1 seems to be compromising a bit. This phone is made from plastic/polycarbonate which is something that is rare these days. However, come think of it, it is not necessarily a bad thing.
