Meizu have declared a price was against Xiaomi by lowering prices of their current phones! Xiaomi have retaliated with their own price drop! Who will win?
Late last week Meizu announced a huge price cut on all current Meizu MX2 models! The price cut brought the base model 16GB MX2 down from 2299 Yuan to 1999 Yuan, the 32GB from 2799 Yuan to 2399 Yuan and the flagship 64GB to 3299 Yuan. Meizu fans who still have the original M8 can also redeem an additional discount of 400 Yuan bringing MX2 prices down to the level of the Xiaomi M2S!
Of course Xiaomi, with the successful launch of the Red Rice just weeks behind them, weren’t going to sit back and let Meizu steal this weeks headlines and have retaliated by reducing prices of almost every Xiaomi handset available!
The Xiaomi range now starts at just 799 Yuan for the newly launched 1.5Ghz Red Rice with the flagship 32GB Xiaomi M2S which boasts a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and Snapdragon 600 processor for only 2009 Yuan!
