Should launch maximum around INR 40k mark?
Edit: Checked the weight and its a dealbreaker. I would rather put up with a notch/punch-hole whatever if a pop-up cam adds this much to the device weight.

1200nits for a phone is an overkill unless you spend most of your day under the sun confused
Good specs but costly phone..won’t work for Indian market

Most probably will be around 30k in India, if launched.
European prices are always the costliest.

There’s reportedly a ~$75 pricing delta between SD855 ~USD53 and SD865~USD70 due to the latter requiring an external 5G modem ~$25 and 5G antennas ~$35(besides additional licensing fees per chip common to both). That plus the switch to OLED. It would be surprising if its priced below Rs 35k.

30k price is not possible bro for 5g model, currently cheapest SD865, 5g phone is Realme X50 Pro which costs 40k for model 6/128.

I hope they don’t price it below 35k. That’s the only sure shot way for it to fail.

Poco should just launch a SD 855+ phone as Poco F2 at around 28-30k, with better overall features and performance as compared to One Plus 7 series, while under-cutting its price. With launch and bank offers, at around 25k mark, it will continue being the affordable flagship level phone.
They can launch a Pro model with 865 and other bells and whistles at >35-40k. Will serve both category of buyers.
This obsession with SD 865 (alongwith increased GST and free falling rupee) is really driving up the prices of affordable flagships, because of the 5G, which is anyway a waste in India for the next few years.

SD855 vanilla or plus will offer better bang for buck. With additional GST & 865 5g premium pricing it’ll be difficult for companies to offer truly affordable flagships.

May be they go IQOO route and launch a 4G variant at 30k

5G is of no need in India as of now.
So may be they launch a 4g variant at 30k to be competitive

Possibly. Though the fixed costs still remain I believe. IQOO probably disabled the 5G bands in software. How are they trying to position the brand? With no support for aftermarket development they don’t appeal to enthusiasts. Oneplus and Realme and both ends of the scale.

The GPU perf. delta is massive between 8xx and 7xx series. That alone makes the 855 a better value.

Pricing this at 35k doesn’t make sense in India.
People would rather invest a bit more and get phones with higher refresh rate to be future proof.
And the reaction that MI 10 got in India for pricing it at 50k , probably tells the tail that Indians are not ready to invest big on Xiaomi phone’s.

That would be for the better. Although I remember how badly I was wrong when I had predicted the RN4 to not sell well as it was a downgrade compared to RN3 is more than one aspect.

By name it’s pro but still doesn’t have the following :
1)Optical image stabilization
2)90hz display
3)Stereo speakers

One plus 7t has all of the above 3 things. 5g is not needed at the moment.

Samsung S10 lite & Note 10 lite have OIS which helps in no blur night photography.

Most Poco enthusiasts don’t have budget above 30k. And those have will prefer more established tier 1 brands. Atleast 1 variant will be there below 30k for sure.

If they want to price it at around 35k, they would rather sully the Redmi Name then the Poco Name
