The tendency of the general rise in price of flagship smartphone models will be most pronounced this year. So, Galaxy S10 models will cross the psychological threshold of $ 1000, LG G8 ThinQ will also appreciably increase in price. And the same, according to the source, will happen with Xiaomi Mi 9.
His findings on the price of Mi 9 were shared by Pan Jiutang, partner of the investment department at Xiaomi Industry. According to him, the Mi 9 will cost about 4,000 yuan. We translate it into commonly understood conditional units and get approximately $ 590. For comparison, the cost of Xiaomi Mi 8 in the Chinese market at the time of the release was approximately $ 420. A top-end version of Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash memory was valued at $ 577.
It is unclear what version of Mi 9 says Mr. Ziutan. If this is the price of the top-notch option, then such an increase does not look impressive, but if it meant the basic version of the smartphone, then such pricing might upset many potential buyers. In any case, Mi 9 will be more expensive than Mi 8.
Recall that the official premiere of Xiaomi Mi 9 will be held on February 20, exactly in a week.
