Last month, Xiaomi Mi 6 was made public, but the phone has just started hitting more local Chinese stores this month.
While the Chinese OEM has not said a word regarding the global availability of Xiaomi Mi 6, as expected, online retailers are already stocking the phone with ready shipments to whatever corner of this word it is that you are located. One such retailer is Geekbuying and so far, you’ll have to be content with paying a little more than what the phone is actually priced at in China.
Just so you know, those in China can get their hands on the Xiaomi Mi 6 at a price that is equivalent to $363. This gives you a phone with a 5.15-inch Full HD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage. The cameras on the back are two 12MP lenses. One has a f/1.8 aperture and is actually the primary sensor. The other has an aperture of f/2.6 and it’s a telephoto lens that supports up to 2x optical zoom. The dual-lens setup also ships with all camera goodies that include 4-axis OIS, PDAF, 4K video recording and dual-tone LED flash. The front has an 8MP shooter for selfies and it can record 1080p videos.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 has a high-end variant that keeps just about every other spec of the base model, except that it comes with a massive 128GB storage. The two variants have the same 3350mAh battery unit, support for fast charging, Android 7.1.1 Nougat and no place for a 3.5mm audio jack. However, the double storage means you also have to pay slightly more for this variant. So far, those in China can get one at about $420. If you want a ceramic back version of this 128GB model, you only need to add an extra $15 and it’ll be yours.
Now, since the Xiaomi Mi 6 won’t – or rather has not been confirmed – be heading to quite a number of countries across the globe, third party retailers such as Geekbuying come into play. The retailer has just listed the base model of the Mi 6 at $470, but this is the black color variant. If you want the blue variant, it comes in at an extra $20. The high-end variant (black) will set you back $546 while the blue, white and ceramic back variants cost $566. These prices do not include shipping charges, but the retailer says that shipping is free.
You can get these prices further lower by taking advantage of the coupon code 10$ORDER200 that sheds off $10 on each model and another code MI6128 that takes off an impressive 18% of the price for the 128GB variants only. This means you’ll pay about $448 for the black variant and $464 for the white, blue and ceramic back variants. Note that these prices are subject to change at any time, so hurry while they prevail.To grab one Xiaomi Mi 6 for yourself, hit the source link below. But
