Xiaomi Mi 6 isn't headed to India, rumor says

Vlad, 27 April 2017

Xiaomi announced the Mi 6 earlier this month for its home market of China, and the new flagship smartphone will become available over there tomorrow. It's seen huge levels of interest, with more than 1.2 million people registering on JD.com, the country's biggest online retailer.

The fact that Xiaomi is launching a new handset in China first is no surprise, that's how it's always done things. But its devices do generally make it to the handful of other markets where it's officially present - eventually. However, a new rumor says that strategy could be changing for the Mi 6. The device isn't going to be released in India.

That's big if true, because India is Xiaomi's second largest market in terms of sales. Yet this information comes from some unnamed sources, so don't forget to take it with a grain of salt.

Instead of the Mi 6, Xiaomi will reportedly launch another high-end smartphone in the subcontinent. The decision of not bringing the Mi 6 apparently makes sense for the Chinese company. It's always focused more on mass-market devices such as the Redmi series in India, and not the top of the line. Additionally, it's being speculated that the Mi 6 could be "too expensive" there.
