Xiaomi’s arguably best phone for its price, the Pocophone F1, is coming to Pakistan as well.
This was confirmed by Pocophone’s official twitter, mentioning the countries where the phone will be available in. Here’s the image:
The phone will be subject to regional differences in pricing but there’s a general trend of $300-350. In Spain, for example, the F1 is available for €330 (64 GB variant) with €30 coupon, effectively bringing its price down to €300. The 128GB model, meanwhile, is available for €400.
For France, the phone costs about €360 for the 64GB storage version, while the 128 GB model is available for a similar €400.
Meanwhile, in India, the phone is available for Rs. 20,999 (around PKR 36,600). Pakistan might get it for around Rs. 45,000-50,000 thanks to distributor margins, but take this with a grain of salt as this price is merely speculation at this point.
Xiaomi didn’t specify a release date, stay tuned for further updates on the matter.
