Xiaomi is expected to unveil its new Mi 11 phones on Monday, December 28, and today a leak from China revealed how much would the vanilla variant cost. According to sources, pricing will begin from CNY4,500 or $687/€565 and that’s the least powerful 8/128 GB 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% cheaper.
There might be assumptions this it the cost of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, but the Mi 10 Pro 5G smartphone was way more expensive in China and we’re pretty sure the company won’t back down with all the new features coming along the way.
This leaves us to the prices either being placeholders or the vanilla Mi 11 really going to be more expensive than its predecessor, setting the bar even higher for the Pro variant.
