#NewPOCO for India is just… old POCOPHONE F1 Armored Edition for us…?
In an underwhelming turn of events, POCO India has just announced the availability of the new POCO F1 Armored Edition with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. POCO India has been teasing a #NewPOCO and we were probably getting a bit ahead of ourselves with the assumptions.
POCO fans! Presenting the #NewPOCO

Fans in local POCOPHONE user communities were assuming that there will be a POCOPHONE F1 Lite with a lesser chipset, or even one with a larger screen and the same innards. It seems like it wasn’t to be though, as India finally gets the Armored Edition that we have.
Priced at 23 999 rupees (~RM1427), it comes with the same Kevlar back, but features less RAM and storage than the original POCO F1 Armored Edition they have in their market. Well, that was disappointing.
Pokdepinion: Oh dear, I was really getting in on the hype of a larger POCOPHONE though. A large 6.9″ screen with a Snapdragon 845. Sounds like a dream! And thus it remains a dream…
