The increase in cost of electronics from China has started and major manufacturers are already adjusting prices. First to effect the change is Meizu who have increased the price of the M5 Note and also their android TV box. Xiaomi is following suit and is starting with its smart TVs.
According to the source, LeEco was the first to increase the price of TVs before Xiaomi increased theirs. The price increase affects only two models though but there is no assurance that the rest will remain the same for long. The price changes are listed below:
- Mi TV 3S 48-inches: initially priced at ¥1999 ($285), now ¥2299 ($331)
- Mi TV 3S 55-inches: initially priced at ¥3499 ($503), now ¥3699 ($532).
