Will You Pay Twice The Original Price for A Xiaomi Mi MIX? Apparently, A Japanese Second-Hand Store thinks So!

by Habeeb Onawole 1

The Xiaomi Mi MIX is priced at ¥3499 ($509) for the 4GB RAM + 128GB version and ¥3999 ($581) for the 6GB+256GB variant irrespective of the color. If you head to Japan, try not to be shocked if you see it being sold for double the price.

In a second-hand store in Tokyo that specializes in importation of devices, the 6GB RAM variant of the Xiaomi Mi MIX was seen selling for 109,800 Yen which is roughly ¥6700 ($974)!

For that amount, you could purchase the 6GB variant and still have enough to buy a Xiaomi Mi 5S or Mi 5s Plus if you buy from Mi.com. However, if you will be buying from third party re-sellers, you might be paying more or less the same amount as the store in Japan. A quick search on one of the major online stores shows that the 4GB RAM variant sells for about $740 (¥5100). That shows how much re-sellers jack up prices for phones like this.
