The Xiaomi Poco F1 was launched last month at Rs 20,999, and quickly garnered a lot of praise from experts for the immense value-for-money on offer. The first flash sale of the smartphone was on August 29, and the device quickly sold out with over one lakh units being sold during the sale. The next sale for the Xiaomi Poco F1 will take place today at 12:00PM on Flipkart.

This will, once again, be a flash sale, so stocks are expected to last for only a few minutes. If you’re looking to pick up the phone, we recommend that you log onto Flipkart a little before 12:00PM, and add the variant that you want to your cart as soon as the sale starts. Once you’ve done so, you have a short while to complete the purchase. If you’re successful, you’ll have the Xiaomi Poco F1 shipped to you. During today’s sale, Axis Bank Buzz credit card users will get an additional 10 percent off on the phone, along with additional partner offers from Reliance Jio, and no-cost EMI offers on various bank cards.

The phone is available in multiple variants, with the entry-level option starting at Rs 20,999 and coming with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The highest variant is the Poco F1 Armored Edition, which is priced at Rs 29,999, and comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, and also has a 4,000mAh battery.
