Xiaomi smartphones rise in price

Xiaomi is famous for smart phones with good hardware and quite low price tags. However, it may soon

change: the company announced a rise in price of flagship devices.

Prices are higher

The head of Xiaomi Lei Jun (Lei Jun) said that theytired of the reputation of the manufacturer of cheap equipment. For example, the latest flagship Mi 9 received a top Snapdragon processor 855 and a triple camera, but it costs € 449 (2999 yuan, we have 14 thousand hryvnia).

But the "nine" seems to be the last flagshipwith such a price tag. “In fact, we want to get rid of the reputation that our phones cost less than 2,000 yuan. We want to invest more and make better products. This may be the last time our price will be below 3,000 yuan. In the future, our phones may become more expensive. Not much, but more expensive, ”said Lei Jun.

Now one of the most expensive models Xiaomi - special editions Mi Mix 3 Forbidden City (4999 yuan) and Mi 9 Transparent Edition (3999 yuan).

Most likely, the rise in price will not affect the brands Redmi and Poco, which are initially positioned as manufacturers of low-cost smartphones.
