Looking forward to it as well. But be careful. Mi Mix phones have chinese and international variants. Most likely you will want to buy the international version. Always hard to tell in advance. I strongly recommend you wait a few weeks. Prices should also go down quite a bit.

Just get it from gearbest or aliexpress.

Just bought as a new customer on aliexpress thru the Xiaomi Global Store. I paid $622 USD for the 8gb/ 128Gb version.
Hope it comes soon! I just could not wait any longer.

Prices are dropping, just saw aliexpress 8/256 version $623. Interestingly, the 6GB RAM/128 GB doesn't have enough LTE bands to be used in the US, only the higher 8/10 RAM version will do. Good site here(kimovil) for references on almost every phone in the world:

Thanks for the info but the 256gb model is not $620.

Checked again, it is $623 but I overlooked something else, I think only the 8gb/10gb 256GB storage has extended LTE for US, the other phones show only 7 matching bands out of 14(4G) - vs 12 out of 14 with band 66 included for 8/10gb 256GB, no 71 band which is fine.

I guess, I missed the conversion:

I notice it said "The Forbidden Palace" which is the 10GB RAM but it is my understanding that version has not been released yet? Am I correct? They said that that version was going to be released after the first of the year. That's why I hate to buy things outside the US because they always try to pull something and mislabel the product. So, beware! If it sayes 8GB ... IT IS! (The Forbidden Palace is the 5G version with 10GB RAM)

Think it would be worth paying the bit extra, sure you will recover any money on resale.

I do not have the source but what I have read (correct me) only the 256gb/8gb version has the B66. I would stick to the international ROM for t-mobile. The reason being is it may (correct me) have volte. You have a better chance of getting that if that is important.
