Xiaomi is the biggest tech supplier in China and also India. With its smartphones leading the Android market in Asia, the company has also plenty of home appliances to boast from. Today we are talking about the new Mi router that will hit the market very soon.
The new Mi AIot Router AX3600 or simply the AX3600 is already available to be purchase from third party retail outlets but is still not available on the eCommerce platforms, which is a rare scenario.
The company boasts that its AX3600 is designed to offer performance while not being heavy on users’ wallets. That goes for almost all of Xiaomi’s products.
Speaking of the new router, it supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 which is really good news. To top it all, the new AX3600 from Xiaomi comes at a whopping price of $100 from AliExpress. The advantage is that most of the Wi-Fi 6 routers in the market come at a starting price which is many times more than $100.
So Xiaomi is doing a pretty decent job in offering the router at $100 if you ask me. But some third parties are still selling the router as high as $159.99 US, which is still cheap when you compare it with other Wi-Fi 6 routers in the market.
