The first Xiaomi Mi phone was launched in August 2011. That handset featured a 1GB RAM, which made the device stand out among its competitors. Most of them were packed with a 512MB of RAM. The Xiaomi Mi 1 also runs on MIUI3. This model was priced at 1999 yuan ($292).
One year later the company released the Xiaomi Mi 2 packed with a 2GB of RAM and running on MIUI4. Thus the OS version was changed as well as the memory capacity was doubled.
We were able to get our hands on the Xiaomi Mi 3 in September 2013. This model was criticized a lot due to a Nokia Lumia-like design. Honestly, Xiasomi hadn’t got its own design style yet. The memory remained at the same capacity of 2GB, but the MIUI version changed to 5.
Remember June 2014? The Xiaomi Mi 4 with a 304 austenitic stainless steel was out. It was called ‘classic’. The Mi 4 came with a 3GB of RAM and MIUI6.
With the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 5 in February 2016 was born a special term, ‘black technology’. This variant was equipped with a 4GB of RAM and MIUI7.
Finally, the Xiaomi Mi 6 has been released a few months back in April. And though it was impossible to keep the starting price of 1999 yuan and the phone was priced at 2499 yuan ($365), this handset still remains the most affordable handset in the top-end market. Well, the device sports a 6GB of RAM and runs on MIUI8.
