      Anyone can sell MTK phones in India as long as they obtain the patents from Ericsson. Xiaomi never did. If Xiaomi would pay Ericsson for those patents they could sell phones there too.

          Every phone is made up of thousands of patents from everything from how a touchscreen works to the shape of certain buttons. In order to build a phone you have to acquire those patents. Qualcomm acquires them for companies in relation to their Snap Dragon chips which is why Xiaomi can sell those there.
