Pocophone F1 Armored Edition coming to Malaysia as soon as next week!
If you wonder what is THE smartphone to buy for Malaysians in 2018, the answer is probably Xiaomi’s Pocophone F1. With a price just shy of RM1,400, You get plenty of phone for the price you pay for. In light of its success, Xiaomi is finally bringing its more premium version of F1 to Malaysia, none other than the Armored edition.
What makes the Armored Edition special is the the materials used for the back cover of the phone. It boasts a Dupont Kevlar aramid fibre back, a step up from the polycarbonate back found on the standard version. It is supposedly more durable and less prone to fingerprints, although still not as “premium” feeling as aluminium or glass.
The variant we are getting here in Malaysia is the 6GB + 128GB version, not the 8GB + 256GB variant available in India.
On 27th September, you can be among the first in Malaysia to own the POCOPHONE F1 Armored Edition at the recently opened Mi Store Sunway Pyramid. There will be only 200 units in the first batch of this special edition POCOPHONE F1, and they are going to be priced at just RM1599. That’s a RM100 premium over the standard POCOPHONE F1, but it’s one we are willing to pay.
As a recap, The Pocophone F1 will carry Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, water-cooling, and a 6.18″ Full HD+ notched and bezel-less display. Camera-wise, the main camera sports a dual 12MP + 5MP array, while the front-facing camera is a 20MP sensor that comes complete with Xiaomi’s “Super Pixel” technology. Quite a feat how Xiaomi manage to pack so much quality component into a sub RM1,400 phone.
