Xiaomi Mi 6: Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs For Half The Price!

Want A Galaxy S8 For Cheap? Check Out The New Xiaomi Mi 6!

Xiaomi’s new flagship boasts top-level specs a la Samsung Galaxy S8, but you don’t have to pay top dollar to get it.

Xiaomi is doubling down on their new flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 6. They sort of need to, seeing that 2016 hasn’t been a particularly swell year for them.

The new smartphone offers top-of-the-line specs that can easily beset the latest expensive flagships from its competitors. Where it ironically has the “edge” and Samsung doesn’t: Xiaomi decided to add an extra 350mAh battery to the device, recognizing the need for such boost when you’ve got an ultra-fast processor and a beefed-up RAM. Also, the 12-megapixel dual camera system in the Mi 6, which, for some ungodly reason, the Samsung does not have. Finally, there’s the biggest trump card: the price. You can get almost all of the features you get on the S8 (save for the curved, gorgeous AMOLED display; with the Mi 6, you get a traditional 1080p LCD) for half the price.

You’ve heard it right. Half the price. The Mi 6 has a suggested retail price of somewhere around $300-400, which is absolutely going to factor in. Other flagships such as the LG G6, Huawei P10, and Samsung Galaxy S8 is priced somewhere around $700-900, collectively.
