If you are in a market where getting hold of the Xiaomi Mi 6 in local stores is a problem, Geekbuying has something cool for you.
The retailer has discounted the Xiaomi Mi 6 by an impressive 30%. This means that rather than pay the normal $580.99 for the base model of 64GB storage, you will only part with $405.99. This leaves you with a cool $175 in savings.
The offer is not limited to the base model of the phone, but also the high-end variant, which has a storage capacity of 128GB. Usually, this version of the Xiaomi Mi 6 costs $659.99, but for a limited time, you can now have it for $457.99, saving you an even better $202. This is a percentage discount of 31%.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 comes in several color variants – black, blue, white and ceramic black. So far, this deal is only limited to the black color variant in both storage options. As for the other colors, the prices remain unchanged.
The Mi 6 is one of the most powerful yet underappreciated phones on the market. Perhaps it’s because the bad reputation Xiaomi has in the market with respect to software. The MIUI skin is considered one of the heaviest, but like Samsung and other Android OEMs, the Chinese company has been working on this skin to improve it.
With this in mind, the MIUI 8 skin that comes preinstalled on the Xiaomi Mi 6 is not bad at all. Even if it’s heavier than others out there, the performance specs of the phone will ensure that you never feel this lag. There’s a Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 6GB RAM on either variant. The phone itself has a premium design with a 4-sided curved 3D glass on top of a 5.15-inch display screen that has a Full HD resolution.
The Mi 6 has a dual-lens 12MP camera on the back with 4-axis OIS and 2x optical zoom alongside an 8MP shooter on the front. For the OS, you get Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. Android 8.0 Oreo is out, but it could take months before this phone gets the official update. To stay alive, you have a decent 3350mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology via a USB-C port.
However, you’ll be disappointed to learn that the Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the few phones on the market that has no support for a 3.5mm audio jack.
Make sure you hurry and grab this deal because it will end in 6 days’ time.
