The Poco F1 is still trending in India and beyond. That is because the device is proving to be one amazing model, propelled by its premium build, powerful flagship specs lineup and cheap pricing. The Xiaomi sub-brand model went on its first sale on Wednesday in India and as expected, it was a successful outing. The phone was sold on Mi.com and Flipkart.
In a “Thank you” tweet after the flash sale, Poco India disclosed that it sold more than Rs. 200 crore (Rs. 2 billion) worth of Poco F1 which is roughly $28 million USD in just 5 minutes. That is to say, all the units were sold out in just about 5 minutes. The sale is tipped to be Flipkart’s biggest and fastest flagship sale ever. A rough estimate of the number of units sold shows the company may have shipped over 68,985 units. That is if most persons bought the high-end model. Whereas, if most buyers went for the base model, Xiaomi may have sold up to 100,000 units within the five minutes. The exact number of units sold was not revealed, though.
In addition, it was disclosed that the Poco F1 would go on sale again in India on September 5. That is next Wednesday, exactly a week from its first sale. Before then, we’ll likely see the Pocophone F1 go on sale in Europe and Hong Kong.
