  4. xiaomi should follow its previous stategy, launch one series in one bracket like redmi for 7-9k redmi note 10-13k mi max 15-20k and mi 20-25k and mi mix 30k plus…new strategy of launching various versions creates confusion among buyers which one should they purchase..they forget the fact that their all previous handsets were bang for bucks….1st class products..then why this new strategy??? with downgrade specs too

      1. I doubt Xiaomi really does production of this model and just make fake sales.. even if we click so fast purchase never happens..

      2. This variant exists….

        Actually they are preordered by Mi Authorised stores in bulk, which they sell at Rs 500 higher than online price….

        You can visit to mi.com and check the list of authorised stores….

        At mi home you get that at exact online price but at authorised stores they are allowed to sell at rs 500 extra

      3. It’s there ..I bought it when fist sale happened..it’s the most vfm device so always out of stock.

    1. I doubt this variant exists. Because, I have tried many times and nowhere it is available.
