Xiaomi takes a jab at Apple with new bundles named Xs, Xs Max and XR
Following the announcement of the new iPhone trio by Apple with outrageous prices, Chinese phone makers are quick to the action to mock the US company of their ridiculous pricings. The latest to join the fun is Xiaomi.
Xiaomi takes a jab at Apple by introducing 3 bundles aptly named after the new iPhones names, Xs Xs Max and XR. The listing takes a direct swipe at the pricing of the three iPhone models; the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max. Xiaomi is offering some attractive and cool Mi gadgets we can get at the price of just one iPhone.
The XR suite as you can guess represents the iPhone XR which interestingly is the base model but starts at 6499 yuan (RM3,914) in China. For this amount, Xiaomi offers buyers the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE (6+128GB) Grey, Mi Band 3, Mi Notebook Air 12.5 Inch 4+256G Silver and the Mi Bluetooth Headset Mini (Black). Pricing for the high-end iPhone XS begins at 8699 Yuan (RM5,239) in China and Xiaomi mirrors that with the XS Suite which offers buyers the flagship Mi MIX 2S (8GB+256GB) Black, Mi Band 3, Mi Notebook Air 13.3″ (Silver) and the Mi Bluetooth Headset Mini (Black).
The most expensive of the bunch, the iPhone XS Max with a giant display begins at a whopping 9599 yuan (RM5,781). For that amount, Xiaomi is offering the XS Max bundle comprising of the Mi 8 (6GB+128GB), Mi Notebook Pro, Mi Bluetooth Collar Headset and Mi Band 3 on Mi.com. Sadly, this is only applicable in China as all the products in the bundles will cost more than what is being offered on Xiaomi’s website. It would be interesting, though, to see such bundles being offered in India, Spain and other regions where XIaomi has its physical presence.
