Two of the most popular Chinese phones in the Xiaomi Mi3 and the OnePlus One now have listings on the Amazon India store. However, we’re yet to hear from either of the two companies if what we see if official.
Both smartphones are known for their exceptional value for money aspect. While the Xioami Mi3 packs a Snapdragon 800 SoC, the OnePlus One goes a step further and features the Snapdragon 801.
Xiaomi’s India plans are far from a hard kept secret now. On the other hand, OnePlus have largely been quiet about their India plans apart from a standalone forum post.
We’re working on India too, but we may need a few months. Our company is not even 4 months old.
According to the Amazon India listings, the Xiaomi Mi3 64GB will go for 37,450 INR, the OnePlus One 16GB for 34,500 INR and 64GB for a whopping 39,700 INR. While you are free to take a look at the listings, we recommend you wait a bit for an official word from either company before you make any sort of a purchase.
The high interest and demand for both these devices is very understandable, given the lucrative price tags both devices carry. However, the question still remains: will the makers be able to offer the phones at similar prices with local availability? We definitely hope so.
