At the Redmi Note 3 earlier this month, Hugo Barra mentioned they will bring Xiaomi Mi5 the company’s latest flagship device to Indian market in April and it was no casual remark. The launch event is here and on 31st of March.
Yes, it’s the same device that was showcased at the recently concluded MWC last month and was launched in China and not wasting much time, they are bringing the device to India promptly.
I had spend some time with the Mi5 during the Redmi Note 3 launch and it’s a light-weight Smartphone that has all the credentials to be a flagship product and is the first device powered by Snapdragon 820 processor which promises greater performance. It would be interesting to see how they would price the Mi5 in India and the variants they would bring in. We will keep you updated on the launch day.
