Pocophone F1 - The new flagship killer?

So Xiaomi just launched the "Pocohpone F1".
A phone with a 6.18" IPS HD+ Display, Snapdragon 845, 6/8GB Ram, 64/128/256 gb storage, decent dual camera setup, and a 4000mAh battery, which will retail at approx €260.

Insane value for money and blows anything in it's price range out of the water.

The thing I look for in a flagship killer phone is fast updates. Nice hardware but old software is something that bothers me.
Xiaomi are slow enough with their Android one phone updates, just as an indication.

Give me those specs for something around €300 and I'll wait on updates.
The specs are similar to phones with price tags over 300% higer.

Looks lovely, and cracking spec for the price.

6.18" sounds a little too Phablety for me though, would like to see one in real life.

The NFC and 4000mah battery are huge pluses for me and an 845 chipset at this price point is fantastic.
I will wait for some more reviews 1st but it has jumped to the top of my maybe queue.

Pretty sure there's no NFC.

It's been flagged as no on some sites and as yes on others.
I'm hoping it's in, hence waiting for more reviews.

Hands-on reviews have said it doesn't so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I was already making eyes at a Mi6 I didn't really need, but I doubt I'll be able to keep away from this at the prices quoted (rubs thighs, pants softly).

So long, perfectly functional OnePlus 5, you're off to CEX!

You're daft as a brush if you sell to CEX. You'll get bear double the price of you throw it up on adverts. You'd under cut them substantially and still make far more than by selling to them.

Will we be able to buy in Ireland for €300?

I'd take far less money not to have to deal with bloody donedeal/adverts pukes.

Who do a lot of these Chinese manufacturers not do NFC?
