Xiaomi’s co-founder Lin Bin, today asked a question on Weibo about users’ thoughts on Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition model, in how much they are willing to pay for a smartphone with the same features as the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, and bringing back the same translucent back to their next flagship smartphone (Xiaomi Mi 9), although as per Lin Bin, the manufacturing cost of the Explorer Edition is quite expensive than the regular model and hence may result in price increase.
