Xiaomi is known for using charming pricing i.e. using 9, 99 or 999 at the end of the price tags for the products it sells. However, in the leaked screenshot, instead of mentioning the price of the Xiaomi Mi Play as 1,199 Yuan, it is written as 1,200 Yuan. Hence, the screenshot does not appear authentic.
