When the Pocophone F1 was announced by Xiaomi last month, there was no doubt that the flagship was targeted at OnePlus models because of to its cheap pricing. Xiaomi has confirmed that widely held assertion with its most recent stunt pulled at the OnePlus 6T India launch. Recall that the OnePlus flagship was introduced in India yesterday and according to information, Xiaomi attended the occasion but not to cheer on its fellow Chinese OEM. Instead, Xiaomi reportedly shared calculators to fans who attended the occasion and the boxes had the inscription “You Do The Math”.
Xiaomi did not attempt to deny the weird stunt it pulled as it even took to Twitter to expatiate far more on it. The tweet borrowed OnePlus’ slogan “Never Settle” however this time around it says “Never Settle for OverPriced” apparently comparing the OP6T price tag to that of the Poco F1. The tweet also had the hashtag #DoTheMath. Apparently, Xiaomi Additionally placed an outdoor billboard advert close to the OnePlus 6T meeting venue with the exactly theme.
In case you don’t know, the Poco F1 comes with the exact same Sd 845 chipset with the OnePlus 6T however the prices are comparatively cheaper. Although the Poco F1 is offered at 20,999 rupees (~$283.83) the OnePlus 6T pricing starts at 37,999 rupees (~ $513). However, we really should add that both telephones have couple of distinguishing options that might justify the higher price tag on the OnePlus 6T. Things like a metal/glass back in comparison to the plastic back on the Poco F1, an AMOLED show as against LCD show on the Xiaomi model. The OP6T Additionally comes with an in-display fingerprint digital camera although Right here is a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Pocophone F1. In addition, the OnePlus 6T model whose price is being in comparison by Xiaomi with its PocoF1 base version has far more RAM and memory than the cheapest variant of the Pocophone F1, what is the one that Xiaomi uses in the price comparison. We believe the Mi Mix 3 would have built a better comparison with the OnePlus 6T but then, the pricing isn’t so alternative.
