The Rise Of The Golden Dragon- And Quite Literally!


Xiaomi Mi 9 to get a 24K pure gold customized version

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is tipped to be dealing in Gold and quite literally! The company is set to hit the market with a 24 Karat Gold version of its popular variant MI 9. The smartphone has been doing well in various markets where it has been put up for sale.

According to the famous technology handle @iceuniverse the company will soon announce Gold variant for the model.


The company is expected to launch variants of design on this golden device, each synonymous with some traditional Chinese symbol like fire or dragon.

That the device will be priced at quite a premium could be an understatement! But what could be crucial to customer response is the fact that although the “Bling” statement can’t get bigger than this, there could be performance challenges that the company may have to answer.

Never before has a device been launched with pure gold as its body. And there could be safety concerns about heating up during charging, signal reception or the weight of the device. The company will have to reasonably allay these fears if it wants to garner sales numbers for such a premium device.

We can only wait and watch when this device hits the Indian market and how consumers respond to this market disruption. But one thing is for sure – if you pick up this device you would surely want to get it insured!
