Mi Mix 2s: Jun hints at price
Along with disclosing some important specifications, Jun has also hinted at the price of the phone. The biggest variant of the phone is likely to be expensive. Yes, an expensive Xiaomi phone is coming to the market. The major reason behind this increase in price is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. This latest offering by Qualcomm comes with a price tag of $68.
This is not the final price, for the processor comes with a 17 percent VAT tax on it. Then, the whole cost comes up to $80, which is three times the cost of the SD 660. The latter is used on a lot of upper mid-range phones. We know the pricing of the SD 845 due to Galaxy S9. All the components of the phone were published in a report with their pricing. The processor was listed to cost $68.
We can expect the Mi Mix 2s to arrive with a price tag of 2,599 Yuan ($411 approx). The phone is expected to arrive with an FHD+ display and UFS 2.1 storage. These premium specs can increase the price of the phone to 3,000 Yuan ($490 approx) as the base variant will have a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. The Mi Mix sells at a price of 3,099 Yuan for the same RAM and ROM combination. The Mi Mix 2s can be priced higher for this configuration at 3,299 Yuan ($520 approx).
Jun disclosed the biggest variant of the Mi Mix 2s
Jun has also revealed that the biggest variant of the Mi Mix 2s will arrive with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM. The body of the phone will have a curved ceramic design. It is also likely to feature AI-enhanced dual rear cameras and a support for wireless charging. You must take Jun’s word about the processor and the RAM + ROM combination on the phone. The rest, however, should be taken with a pinch of salt.
