Adding LTE increases the price to only about 1,500 yuan ($230, £175, AU$310 converted).
Given the current politically charged economic climate, we may unfortunately never see it in the US. But the company has stated its plans to come to the US by the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019, so there could be hope for Xiaomi's fans in the west.
