If you were hoping for the usual 1999 Yuan price point for the Xiaomi Mi6 you might be in for a bit of a surprise!

Online E-commerce giant, Jingdong Mall, have been teasing the launch of the Xiaomi Mi6 with a secretive image of the new flagship Xiaomi with a not so secretive price point! Chinese media reported that the Xiaomi Mi6 has appeared in the JD app with a price point of 3599 Yuan which at today’s exchange rate works out at approximately $522! That’s a considerable jump in retail price from the usual 1999 Yuan Xiaomi launch price.

What the listing doesn’t show us though is which model this price is for and we might still have chance for the lower price. For all we know this price could be for an 8GB RAM 256GB memory version of the Xaiomi Mi6, meaning a 4GB RAM 64GB memory version could still cost only 1999 Yuan!

In other leaks today we saw that the Xiaomi Mi6 looks to have a flat screen rather than a curved 3D panel, and that the dual camera phone won’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack. As for specs the only details which seem accurate are the use of a Snapdragon 835 chipset and dual Sony IMX400 rear cameras.

    Xiaomi will become next HTC with slow sales if they did like this.

    overpriced last gen phone. you can get a more good looking one with headphonejack for 100$, even bluboo has one with curved panel for a very low price! I see very low sales…

        Yeah ! How did you noticed that? I’m from Europe and I work for China via skype, I also control a robot in a manufacteur plant in beijing with my brain, it’s amazing. Hope gain lazer eyes someday 🙁 but just as I said, 500$ plus for more of the same phone it’s a non sense. Even a last gen iphone is cheaper and better.

    Hmmm it is getting more and more UN-attractive to buy china phone nowadays. Their price getting more and more expensive for every generation, might as well buy Apple or samsung product then

    Personally I think that one plus is probably the only Chinese smartphone worth getting. At least if you live in Europe or North America and you want high end specs.

      u pravu si…jedini koji sluzbeno nudi i garanciju.
      do duse, ima par operatera u europi (pa recimo i u Srbiji) koji nude Meizu,a i ovih trgovina koje uvoze ostale kineze, no to je sve Znj garancija sto oni nude a i cijene su im bas velike.
