Xiaomi Mi Mix‘s price is now down by 500 Yuan: do you know what does it mean? The company may be preparing the official launch of its successor: Mi Mix 2. Indeed, companies often reduce the prices of their flagship before launching a new phone to make people purchase the old model before it would be too late. Before the reduction, the price of the phone was 3999 Yuan (about 599 dollars) on the famous store Jingdong Mall (JD.com). After the reduction, the phone is priced 3499 Yuan, that is equivalent to just 524 dollars. This is the price of the version with 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage, so the most powerful one.
Xiaomi Mi Mix price has reduced for the most entry level version as well, that is the one with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The cut amounts to 300 Yuan: before it had a price of 3499 Yuan (about 524 dollars) and now it costs 3199 Yuan (around 479 dollars). A discount of 500 Yuan has been made available on Mi Mall as well, which is the official store by the company.
This price drop could mean that Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will be launched soon, but do not forget the rumors. According to voices, this flagship will be officially showcased in September, so if the rumors are to be believed, we would still need to wait a month to see it. Even if it was officially released in late 2016, the original Xiaomi Mi Mix is still one of the most powerful flagship phones in 2017. It has a full borderless screen with a 91.3 percent screen to body ratio, a size of 6.4 inches and a resolution of 2040 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, there is a quad core Snapdragon 821 SoC by Qualcomm.
