Xiaomi launch smartphones in India

Chinese smartphone vendor, Xiaomi, is actively looking at partners to launch its smartphones in India. BGR India has learned that the company is talking to multiple content providers in the country. Xiaomi, which sold 19 million smartphones in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong last year launched in Singapore earlier this week. At the launch event, Hugo Barra, the man hired to take Xiaomi global said that India along with Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia could be the next international markets for the smartphone maker.


While we do not have any word on possible India launch timeline but Xiaomi has been talking to a variety of content providers in India. However, it will also have to set up its distribution and after sales service centres in the country before launching its smartphones.

In order to launch its smartphones in Singapore, Xiaomi had to translate its entire UI to English. According to Bara, Singapore is the best market to test Xiaomi’s first venture outside of Greater China region as it is a relatively small market and would provide Xiaomi a good opportunity to change things.

In Singapore, Xiaomi has launched two smartphones – the RedMi and the flagship Mi3. Priced at approximately Rs 7,800, the RedMi offers a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz Mediatek 6589 quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera. The Mi3, on the other hand, has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset, 5-inch 1080p display, 13-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras. It is priced at approximately Rs 20,600 in Singapore.
