Would you be willing to pay $ 1,500 for a Xiaomi terminal?
Although Xiaomi has always been a firm that has been characterized by launching smartphones -among other products- with a great value for money, such as its low / mid-range terminals, the truth is that the company has been trying for a few months take off that tag presenting and launching devices that we could consider high-end.
The last terminal presented, the Xiaomi Mi 11, proves it. 120Hz refresh rate display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 4,600 mAh battery with 55W fast charge… next-generation device specifications.
Despite all this, the price of the Xiaomi Mi 11 will not be really high either since it is expected to cost around 600-800 euros. However, Would you be willing to pay $ 1,500 for a Xiaomi smartphone? We did not ask ourselves but the CEO of the Chinese brand himself.
Would you buy a Xiaomi phone for $ 1,500?
As he always does, the CEO of Xiaomi called Lei Jun, has started an interesting debate on one of the most popular social networks in China. As we read in some media such as Android Authority, Lei Jun has asked all his followers - who are also Xiaomi fans - if they would buy a phone from the company if it were launched at a starting price of $ 1,500.
The followers have obviously responded that it depends and that is that to spend all that money on a smartphone it should be really powerful.
Recall that in 2019 Xiaomi presented the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha, a somewhat strange phone that had a price of more than 2,500 euros. The device was obviously a sales failure but that due to its peculiar design, obviously that was not Xiaomi's goal.
Does this mean that Xiaomi could present a new high-end that cost 1,500 dollars? Will it be the case of the future Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro or of a totally new terminal? Be that as it may, it is clear that this question has a hidden intention so it is very possible that the Chinese firm will surprise us soon with a top-of-the-range phone that is not suitable for all pockets.
