After teasing their followers for a few weeks, Xiaomi India (Mi India) have finally made their first announcement in the country. The China based maker will put its current flagship, the Mi3 on pre-order starting 15th this month.
Known for selling their products at cost price, Xiaomi will offer the Mi3 for an incredible price of just 14,999 INR in the country. The Mi3 has received a few price cuts of late, which makes it quite a VFM affair. We’d go as far as to say that the Mi3 is the best phone in the 15k INR price bracket, thanks to some powerful hardware and a very fluid ROM.
- 5-inch 1920 x 1080p display
- Snapdragon 800 SoC
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB/32GB on-board ROM
- 13 mega-pixel rear camera
- 2 mega-pixel front facing camera
- Android v4.3 (Overlaid with MIUI V5)
- 3050mAh non-removable battery
After having used the Mi2S aka ‘little giant’ for over 6 months, I can safely say that MIUI is one of the best and most customizable ROMs out there, even if you think it’s a bit too colourful for you.
Like we earlier reported, we expect the Xiaomi to utilize Flipkart’s networks for distribution in India. With just one week to go before the 15th, we don’t have a lot to wait!
So who’s buying this one? Do you think Xiaomi will be able to break their flash sale records in India?
