Following the price drop in China, Xiaomi have given their flagship Mi 5 a price cut in their second largest market, India. It’s worth noting that Xiaomi seem to be doing much better in India, especially with their Redmi series as compared to China.
The Mi 5 was launched for 24,999 INR ($372) in India, but will now be available for 22,999 INR ($342), a 2000 INR / $30 price cut.

The phone can be availed for 22,999 INR from mi.com, Flipkart.com and through Xiaomi’s offline retail partners.
It got a 100$ cut almost everywhere, even the PRO version.
Quite the deal for 299$, PRO is at 399$.
Kimovil will tell you best, but the PRO version is more like $450, not $400.
Xiaomi will not move many Mi5, with mere 2k off. They should bring a better flagship. Mi5 has not proven to be the winner as expected by Xiaomi.
How long ago did they launch the Mi5 ?
