Yesterday, Chinese online store, Gome, crashed the price of the Xiaomi Mi 8 in its latest promotion. The Gome Mall page shows that the 6GB + 128GB version has dropped to 2049 yuan ($300), which is 950 yuan ($140) cheaper than its launch price. However, Gome Mall did not state when this promotion will end. Xiaomi Mi 8 is the company’s second 2018 flagship (the first is Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S), which was released on May 31, 2018. With more recent flagships like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and Xiaomi Mi 9 series in the market, it is logical that the price of the Mi 8 drops significantly.
