      You can’t buy it at these prices. You must know by now that the prices only apply to countries where xiaomi is active. Third party resellers are most likely not going to sell at these prices, because they have old stock bought at an higher price and they want to earn money.

        I am in the US; I can find several sites purporting to sell the phone but figuring out a legitimate site has proven fruitless thus far.
