We finally got word of the Xiaomi Pocophone F1’s official prices in the Philippines. This comes a day after we reported that an unofficial retailer on Shopee Philippines is already taking preorders for the Xiaomi sub-brand’s first offering.
According to the company, the device will be sold in the country starting September 6. It will be initially available on Lazada Philippines and will be offered at Mi Authorized Stores thereafter.
Two of the four available Xiaomi Pocophone F1 variants will be offered here — the version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and the unit that pairs 6GB of RAM with 128GB of memory. The base model will cost P17,990 (roughly $337) while the higher-specced F1 will go on sale for P19,990 ($375).
Those prices are quite close to the ones announced in India — and still low for something that is powered by Qualcomm’s current flagship processor, making the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 the cheapest Snapdragon 845 phone in the world.
Unfortunately, the company hasn’t revealed if it will bring the 8GB RAM/256GB ROM variant and the 8GB RAM/256GB ROM Armored Edition to the Philippines at a later time. The two cost ₹28,999 (P22,095 or $414) and ₹29,999 (P22,857 or $428), respectively, in India.
