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.

  • If it is priced 40k+ PKR in here, it will no longer be a “mid range”, “budget friendly” phone anymore. It will be one of the pricey ones, thanks to Pakistan’s strange and stupid import laws.

    • The pricing will definitely be 40k+. The exchange rate is responsible for that. Sadly this is the new reality, midrange phones will be getting more and more expensive if the exchange rate keeps increasing.

      • I hope the $ goes down back to at most 100 PKR soon. Then it will be a true mid range, high end feature rich phone.

        • here is the thing brother, for $ to go down at 100PKR means that Pakistani export will decrease since compare to dollar price ofPakistani stuff for trade will automatically increase due to strong Rupee value. And we can’t afford to further widen the trade deficit. Its a very bad situation for us.

            • The actual answer maybe longer but i answered the above comment in which the poster wants $ to drop REALLY fast, that cannot be good. However if say it comes down gradually within 2 years or so then the effects won’t be that much drastic since the whole trade process will be transitioning along with our currency. Meanwhile our it will impact our imports and they will decrease in time being so rather than buying foreign stuff in $ we will buy or try to buy local stuff and may in Rupee, that in itself shows the strengthening of rupee.

    • Import law is best to secure and increase the local market warna her koi bahar se mangwa k yaaha sale karna start kar de : Ha % & tax amount kam kar sakti hai hukumat & USD Rate ka bhi isse hai.

  • The USD 300 prices you are seeing are before any taxes. Include the taxes, which for USA (for argument’s sake), comes around pretty much 9%. Taking the highest value to be prudent, it’s still a $330 price. Convert to PKR, and BEFORE any Custom and Taxes in Pakistan, it’s well above 40k already. So yeah, price may be well in excess of 45k to consumers, which seems reasonable considering it’s still much less than what you are going to pay for a OnePlus device.

    • well one plus devices starts at 50k+ so getting f1 at 45 isn’t that bad. if letting few months subside after launch one might get at 42 at best

      • 50k? Try 70. Older devices may be cheaper but who will buy them today? Considering the latest OnePlus6 isn’t any cheaper, this Pocophone will be nearly half the price of that. At least it’ll be a better deal than current Q-Mobile shizzles in market.

    • $300 price tag is in India only. Lowest in global launch owing to he fact that the phone is manufactured there. In other countries like France, Indonesia etc, it shall cost nearly $400. In Pk, any price lesser than 50k will be excellent. We are talking about an age where even Oneplus has joined the pack of overcharging creeps.

  • IR BLASTER? its IR scanner not ir blaster
