Xiaomi launched its 2017 Flagship Xiaomi Mi 6 on April 19 in an event in china. The first batch has already sold out in seconds in the flash sale on JD.com.

Rumors suggest that Xiaomi is not so keen on launching their latest flagship Xiaomi Mi 6 in India.

But there is a slight change to it, Unlike previous years, Xiaomi instead of launching their Regular Mi series might launch Mi Note 3 or sequel to the last year’s attention-grabbing Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2.
Xiaomi did launch Mi 5 in India last year but that was not exactly the money maker they wanted it to be. It failed to compete against the like of Oneplus and Lenovo Zuk because it was underpowered and was launched only in 3GB/32GB option. Although Mi 5s with 4GB/64GB was launched in china but Xiaomi didn’t bring it to India.
Xiaomi usually launches it’s smartphone first in china and then take them to their international markets. Xiaomi has been dominating the smartphone market in India and also see a rise of 4X in Q1 of 2017 according to the report by canalys. It has also become the #2 smartphone brand in India leaving behind the giants like Apple and LG.
