Some will say that the POCO F4 is not a real big change in comparison to the POCO F3. Well, the device has the same old processor, the same battery capacity, and just a few tweaks here and there and design changes. Regardless of that, the device is doing pretty well in the Indian market. According to one of India’s biggest e-commerce platforms, Flipkart, the new flagship is the “fastest-selling flagship”. Of course, Flipkart’s flagship segment parameters are a mystery, but the device is certainly achieving a good number of sales.
Gizchina News of the week
The POCO F4 is currently being sold with an early bird price of INR 24,000 instead of the base INR 28,000 for the variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. There are also variants with 8 GB and 128 GB for INR 26,000, and a higher 12 GB with 256 GB model for INR 30,000. All models have an “early bird” discount of INR 4,000. Another interesting detail that makes the deal more attractive in India is the 2 years of warranty. Poco usually offers only one year, but the POCO F4 seems to be a special case. Two years is a reasonable period to keep a device with these specifications, so having a warranty for this period is really good.
