India is the second largest market for Xiaomi smartphones, and the Indian users are hyped to get their hands on the latest flagship from the company, Xiaomi Mi6. But, we have got an exclusive information from a source that Xiaomi has planned not to launch the device in India. If you are wondering, the source has also said that the company has planned to launch any other ‘high-end’ device in India and not the Mi6.
This might sound strange and weird, but there is a solid reason behind this step by Xiaomi. We all know Xiaomi’s Redmi series is the most popular one among the users in India if we compare it with Xiaomi’s high-end series. The devices like Redmi Note 4, Redmi 4A, etc. are selling like hot cakes in the flash sales in India and so, Xiaomi has planned to keep bringing mid-ranger devices to India.
Last year, the Mi5 wasn’t so much successful due to the competition from OnePlus and LeEco. Also, the company didn’t launch the 64GB variant of Mi5 which was a huge mistake as per Hugo Barra. We can understand Xiaomi’s plans by this. Xiaomi wants to expand in India by its budget friendly smartphones because we Indians mostly want more in less and that’s why Xiaomi’s budget devices get such a tremendous response in India. If you are a Mi fan and were eagerly waiting for the launch of Xiaomi Mi6 in India, this is a sad news for you. We will try to gather more information on this so stay tuned.
