Xiaomi is expected to unveil its new Mi 11 phones on Monday, December 28, and today a leak from China revealed how much the base version costs. According to sources, pricing will begin from CNY4,500 or $687/€565 for the 8/128GB option.
If we can trust this leaked image, the 8/256 GB option of the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be CNY4,800 ($735/€600), while a 12/256 GB variant will be priced at CNY5,200 ($800/€650). The prices are nowhere near the Xiaomi Mi 10 cost at its unveiling back in February 2020, with every option being 20% higher now.
We are yet to see if the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will follow suit. Last year the Mi 10 Pro 5G smartphone was way more expensive than its vanilla sibling in China.
