Indian Xiaomi fans have a reason to rejoice! Xiaomi Mi 4 will soon be launched in India, as has been confirmed by Hugo Barra, Xiaomi’s International Head of Operations. It is expected to be launched on January 28th on popular homegrown e-commerce giant Flipkart. Th Mi 4 was launched in July last year and its really surprising that it took Xiaomi 6 months to launch it in one of the fastest growing smartphone markets of the world.
Recently, Xiaomi launched Mi Note and Mi Note Pro at an event in Beijing. However Indian users may have to wait for some time before they come to Indian shores. Obviously Mi 4 seems to be current Xiaomi flagship in India succeeding the super successful Mi 3. As far as pricing is concerned, Mi 4 is expected to be priced anything between 17,000-20,000. This seems to be pretty competitive pricing if we compare it with OnePlus One, which is now available for Rs. 21,999 and that too if you are lucky enough to have an India specific invite.
