[GeekBuying] Xiaomi Mi A1 - $212 USD
- Deal Link:
I think creating a new thread for it is worth it because there was so much cluttered information in the old one.
Some background info:
The A1 was released on September 5th and started shipping on the 12th. The launch price is $235.
Some store are selling it on Aliexpress and other Chinese resellers have it too, however Geekbuying has a promotion for it for $212. (So you are saving roughly 10% on a brand new released phone).

From what I read this is the Hong Kong version, which has the crucial band 4 needed for 4G here in Canada, so there is no need to worry if the phone will work once it arrives in Canada.
Warning: There seems to be some shipping problems for Chinese stores getting items in a timely manner to Canada, very long delays longer than 2 months sometimes. Paying extra for faster shipping might be worth it unless you want to wait that long (or if you are not in a hurry and don't care about the delay) for the phone to arrive.
