Poco F1 is Coming to Nepal; A Disruptive Innovation?

You read it on the headline itself. For people who know about this phone, we needn’t say more. They may be screaming with joy already. They may be counting their cash right now or checking their bank accounts. For people who don’t know about the Poco F1, we’ve got your back.

Poco is a sub-brand of the much known and loved brand in Nepal, Xiaomi. Recently, it released a smartphone in India called the Pocophone F1 and everybody went crazy. A phone that costs just around Rs. 20,000 (Indian Currency) is getting the hype of a new iPhone release. Why? It’s not every day that you get a flagship processor, the Snapdragon 845, for that money. To put things into perspective, the recently released Note 9, Samsung’s most powerful phone that costs Rs. 1,10,000 in Nepal, uses the same chip.
