Xiaomi will enter the Indian smartphone market soon, launches website first
For the moment, the website doesn’t contain much, but there’s the promise of an “incredible journey.” Obviously, the website makes use of the recently-acquired Mi.com domain, which Xiaomi bought for $3.6 million.
There is no word on what handsets Xiaomi is planning to offer in India. However, we assume it’s going to sell both cheap smartphones (like the Hongmi or Redmi Note), and more expensive models (like the Mi3, or the upcoming Mi3S flagship).
Xiaomi is already hugely successful in its home country, China (the world’s largest smartphone market). We’ll see if it also manages to conquer India (which, by the way, is the world’s second largest mobile market). If it does, Xiaomi may soon find ways to threaten the positions of the globe's top 5 smartphone vendors.
