Chinese Xiaomi customers could be in for Mi4, MiPad and MiTV price cuts

xiaomi mi4 price drop

Xiaomi’s official Tmall E-commerce page was updated today with images that point at price cuts for some of the Xiaomi range including the Xiaomi Mi4.

At 1999 Yuan, the Xiaomi Mi4 is well priced, but in light of what else is on the market it is no longer the bargain it once could have been. The IUNI U3 with 2K display has the same price, as does the larger OnePlus One, and then there is Meizu with the more affordable MX4.

It could be that Xiaomi are now fearing these low-cost rivals forcing them to consider lower prices which would explain the updated promotional images over on Xiaomi’s Tmall page.

Gizchina News of the week

The update hints at a new, lower price for the Xiaomi Mi4, Xiaomi TV, Xiaomi power bank, Mi Pad tablet and Piston earphones. What the new prices will be we are not sure however some sources say that the “1?99 Yuan” price listed for the Mi4 could be 1799 Yuan!

We will keep a close eye on the prices and let you know if the lower prices pan out.

    That will be the same for Meizu products including mx4, go to their tmall page. The real question is, how much are they going to sell at these prices? It is not a permanent price drop, only for a promotion event, a lot of brands are holding promotion sales for their products.

    OK, this post will probably be moderated into oblivion, but does this website purposely mislead readers just to drive page views? For a site totally, 100% focused on Chinese mobile tech, you would think the editors could tell the difference between a “new, lower price” and a one day sale. Here’s the hint, in case you missed it. It’s right at the top of the page: 小米天猫双十一. That means “Xiaomi TMall Double 11”. Double 11 is November 11th, the biggest e-commerce blowout sale day in China. Makes Black Friday + Cyber Monday look like a couple of kids selling lemonade in front of their house.

      The one day sale could be just the beginning of the price cut. It is said to be a 2gb version that is going on sale and hence understandable that the price remains cut after that.

    My guess is, that once the 4G/LTE version is out, the ‘old’ Mi4 must cost considerable less or they won’t sell them as they’re used to do.
