Thoughts On The Early Upgrade Cycle
Such an early upgrade for a device is frustrating for a consumer. A person who buys a device will feel left out when its successor drops just six months after its release. However, the consumer may have a temptation to upgrade. This is exactly what the brand wants. As a brand, Xiaomi wants to sell more devices and for them this launch cycle is ideal.
However, as a consumer, you want the latest model available. The six-month upgrade cycle may be frustrating but is tempting for sure. If Xiaomi provides meaningful upgrades in the successor, only then their strategy will be successful. Otherwise, the consumer won’t upgrade. What do you think about this launch strategy?
