It's safe to say that the POCO F1 is one of the most talked-about phones in recent weeks. The Xiaomi sub-brand launched the phone in India earlier this month, and the $300 price point made it an instant hit among Indian consumers. The highlight with the POCO F1 is the hardware — featuring a Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard, the phone punches well above its weight in this category.
The POCO F1 will be making its way to 30 European markets over the course of the year. And while the phone is heading to the Americas, just four markets are included — Mexico, Chile, Colombia, and Uruguay. Notably, the phone won't be sold in China, Xiaomi's home market. It's clear that the POCO branding is targeted at a global audience, and the tweaks to the MIUI launcher highlight the same.
Here's the full list of global markets where the POCO F1 will go on sale:
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- Sri Lanka
Middle East and Africa
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates
The POCO F1 is available in three versions: a base model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, a variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and a high-end model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. There's also an Armored Edition that has a kevlar back.
Pricing and availability will vary by region, but the phone is now on sale in India for the equivalent of $300.
