Xiaomi Mi 6 suffering from ceramic and processor shortages
by Alan Friedman / May 09, 2017, 2:35 PM
The ceramic edition of the Xiaomi Mi 6 replaces the phone's glass shell with one made of a ceramic material. This version of the phone comes with 128GB of native storage, and is priced at the equivalent of $435 USD. That is a small $15 or 3.6% premium over the cost of the 128GB standard variant of the Mi 6.
The bottom line is that the Xiaomi Mi 6 could be selling out a number of flash sales for the foreseeable future. Even without the shortages of the ceramic material and the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the Mi 6 might have faced a tight supply anyway. Xiaomi's flagship phone has historically provided a flagship quality handset at a good value, and the latest model is not an exception to that rule.

If the GS9 was ceramic or all sapphire I would be happy even if drop resistance would take a huge nose dive.

I don't think there is a huge demand for it. It is not cheap as previous models and most of Xiaomi users in China should be budget sensitive. Supply is even lower. First batch was 80K units which is extremely low for huge Chinese market, even if the demand is lower than usual.
