In a recent Xiaomi conference, Lei Jun displayed the bright silver exploration version this smartphone which has a very good visual effect. However, the production process of the bright silver exploration version is quite rigorous because the four curved mirror glass and stainless steel metallic luster must be seamless. This is coupled with a very clean electroplating process with only ten thousandths yield or so.
The CEO of Xiaomi Inc. Lei Jun revealed that Xiaomi is currently producing over 10 million units of this version. Considering the number of units produced, this will be a very rare version of the smartphone.
A seller (media evaluation machine) of this smartphone termed the availability of this version “a special fish in a swarm of fish.” He stated that there is only one piece of the bright silver exploration version presently and he chose to auction the smartphone at a starting price of 3999 yuan ($ 587) which is 1500 yuan ($ 220) more expensive than the regular and available Xiaomi Mi 6. However, there was no one to participate in this auction probably because the price is off the roof.
It is expected that when the official production by Xiaomi is complete, the price will be just a little higher than the regular pricing but certainly not as high as the auction price by this ambitious seller.
