Xiaomi is selling the phone, laptop, Mi Band 3 and Mi Bluetooth headset!

There’s no denying that the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR pack so much inside. But there is also no denying that Apple’s 2018 iPhones will cost you a fortune. Even the seemingly affordable iPhone XR starts at a staggeringly high price of Rs 76,900 in India. Just to stress the obvious, the Apple of China or Xiaomi, is selling all-new bundles that pack a phone, a laptop, a Mi Band 3 and a Mi Bluetooth headset, all for the price of one new iPhone. And it’s not even being shy in letting the world know that it is indeed taking a dig at Apple, for the bundles are named the XR, the XS and the XS Max suite respectively. Unfortunately, Xiaomi’s new XR, XS and XS Max bundles will be available only in China.

Before we dig into Xiaomi’s new bundles, let’s quickly check out the prices of Apple’s 2018 iPhones for some perspective:

iPhoneXR: Rs 76,900 (64GB), Rs 81,900 (128GB), Rs 91,900 (256GB)
iPhoneXS: Rs 99,900 (64GB), Rs 1,14,900 (256GB), Rs 1,34,900 (512GB)
iPhoneXSMax: Rs 1,09,900 (64GB), Rs 1,24,900 (256GB), Rs 1,44,900 (512GB)

In China, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XS start at RMB 8699, RMB 9599 and RMB 6499 respectively.

Xiaomi is taking these iPhone prices, and offering as many as four diverse products (a phone, a laptop, a fitness band and an audio headset) from its portfolio, at strikingly similar prices. Take a look:

Apple launched three new iPhones on September 12, alongside a new Series 4 Apple Watch. While the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the most advanced and most powerful iPhones ever, according to Apple, the iPhone XR is geared towards offering an iPhone XS-like experience at a relatively more mainstream pricing. Having said that, even the affordable iPhone XR is barely affordable for many buyers. Not to mention, the top-tier iPhone XS Max quite literally pushes the price envelope to newer heights. Previously, Huawei was seen taking a dig at Apple on social media, but, Xiaomi has taken it a step further by launching attractive product bundles for the price of one new 2018 iPhone. If only, these bundles were available in more markets.
