Two weeks after Xioami released its three alterations of the Mi 8 it becomes clear that the “budget” Mi 8 SE variant has drawn a lot of attention. The device has had only one sale last week and the next one is scheduled for June 15.
Reservations have already started this morning at Xiaomi’s official website but the real sales will take place two days from now. The device comes in two memory configurations priced at CNY 1,799 ($282) for the 4GB/64GB model and CNY 1,999 ($313) for the 6GB/64GB variant.
However, if you are too impatient to wait two more days or you don’t have access to the Chinese stores, you can always get the device elsewhere but at a significantly higher price – at around $360 for the base model.
