The Xiaomi POCO F1 Armoured Edition will be available in a 128GB storage variant and it comes equipped with 6GB of RAM. Pricing is slightly more expensive than the standard POCO F1. It comes in at Rs 23,999 whereas the regular 128GB/6GB RAM variant is Rs 21,999. That price bump is due to the kevlar back, which gives it a more premium feel and adds durability. It’s a little more expensive, but not hugely so. The price increase in USD is roughly $30. Previously, the Armoured edition was only available with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The Xiaomi POCO F1 is one of the top phones released in 2018, and it’s no wonder that Xiaomi wants to keep it in the limelight just a little bit longer. It’s not uncommon for companies to release new variants of their smartphones a few months after release.
