Lei Jun is very active on Weibo. Frequently, he issues statements that make a stir around. Moreover, from his words, usually, we can understand what new devices will come, what features they will sport, etc. Recently, Lei Jun said that he hadn’t used the Xiaomi Mi 8 for a while, and when got his hands on it again, he understood how easy it is to use. Everything on the Mi 8 is made perfectly. So it is worth the title of the flagship smartphone. A few days later, he made another comment for this phone. Particularly, Lei Jun said that after the camera update he has a feeling he can use it for another two years. What Mi fans like most is that Lei Jun said ‘the Mi 9 should be the most cost-effective flagship smartphone on the market.’
However, there have been many users saying the Xiaomi Mi 8 is a good model but the most classic smartphone of Xiaomi is the Mi 6. What’s interesting, Lei Jun supported them. In other words, he agrees that though the Xiaomi Mi 8 is the most affordable flagship handset, the Mi 6 still remains the most classic device.
As you know, the lowest price of the Xiaomi Mi 8 is currently at the company’s official mall. Its 6+64GB variant is sold for 2099 yuan ($310). But at the same time, Xiaomi has announced the Mi 8 will be the last annual flagship of the manufacturer that costs around 2000 yuan. So probably there will be many smartphone users that will decide to keep their Mi 8 instead of buying a new model at a way higher price tag.
