Mi 11 tipped to launch with €799 base MSRP on the global market
Xiaomi will launch the Mi 11 series globally on February 8th. While specifics of the Mi 11 Pro remain unconfirmed, the Mi 11 is a known quantity as it was launched in China at the very end of 2020. The major question about the Mi 11, however, is that of price.
According to new information, the global model of the Mi 11 will be sold in Europe with a starting price tag of €799. That price is for the base model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Stepping up to the model with 256 GB of storage will see buyers cough up an extra €100, making for an €899 MSRP.
Those numbers may seem familiar. No surprise, as those were the same launch price tags for last year's Mi 10. Sadly, this seems to continue the trend of global versions of Xiaomi's premium devices being significantly more expensive than the Chinese models. The Mi 11 costs CNY 3,999, which converts to €516. Selling the same phone for €799 is a massive 55% bump in price. Hard to justify.
