Xiaomi has announced via the Poco India Twitter handle that the Poco F1 Armoured edition will go on its first sale in India tomorrow (September 5). The tweet also announces that the Poco F1 will go on its second sale tomorrow. This is coming after a highly successful maiden sales where the company recorded tremendous success, including selling units worth Rs. 2 billion ($28million) in less than five minutes.
The success recorded during the sales was without the high-end Armoured edition. The edition looks like a popular one and could drive the sales of the Pocophone F1 even higher. As a reminder, the Poco F1 Armoured edition has its back panel made out of Kevlar aramid fibre, a highly durable material that is used for making of bulletproof vests. The high-end model comes with 8GB of RAM paired with 256GB of internal storage. The model will sell for Rs. 29,999 ($419) which is still an amazingly cheap price tag for a flagship. The Armoured edition will be available alongside other variants via Flipkart and Mi.com.

The Poco F1 ticks all the boxes to emerge as a complete flagship except that its price tag betrays that classification. This has been the key feature of OnePlus models but the F1 floors the OnePlus 6 in term of pricing. The device packs 6.18-inch display and is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset with LiquidCool Technology.
