Samsung Employee Says Samsung Galaxy S8 Hardware Cost More than Xiaomi Mi 6 Price - It appears that Xiaomi Mi family members is no more a budget-friendly. Especially when the most recent successor 'Xiaomi Mi 6' not adhered 1999 yuan ($ 290) price yet went straight to 2499 yuan ($ 363) after its release. Although the front runner seems pricey as compared to its older brothers, still it's the most inexpensive phone incorporating Snapdragon 835 along with 6GB RAM. It's 2 times lower the rate of Samsung Galaxy S8.
Mentioning Galaxy S8, the Oriental smartphone producer's spokesperson called '@ Blue V' on Weibo said:
Galaxy S8 hardware BOM cost more than the price of Xiaomi Mi 6
To be clear, his statement suggests that the cost of Galaxy S8 hardware should be more than 2,500 yuan ($363). Functions such as the existence of heart price sensing unit, an iris scanner, and also waterproof framework further supports this assertion. Still, considering the rate of S8 hardware only to be equal to Xiaomi Mi 6 complete cost seems to be a complete lie. If it's true after that how come Samsung Galaxy S8 isn't really top in performance. Why Xiaomi Mi 6 integrates an overclocked SoC as well as 6GB twin network RAM for a more affordable price? We wish that he better has something to support his disagreement.
