Flipkart confirmed to exclusively sell the Xiaomi Mi3 in India
Xiaomi, the Apple of China entered India last week with the launch of Xiaomi Mi3. The smartphone comes with top-tier specifications and is priced insanely aggressive, at just Rs. 14,999. The company was reported to partner with India's biggest online retailer Flipkart to sell its smartphones in the country, and earlier today Flipkart has officially confirmed the same via its Twitter handle.
Flipkart, yesterday posted a teaser image on its Twitter handle with tagline “Gripping pace, artistic merit, a vibrant display! Coming soon exclusively on Flipkart!” The teaser image shows the top of Xiaomi Mi3 along with words “Accelerate your Life”, the same found on the Xiaomi Mi3 website.
Flipkart later today posted another teaser showing the right side of the Mi3, again confirming the exclusivity of the smartphone. Motorola was the first company to sell its smartphones exclusively via Flipkart, which was followed by Asus with its Zenfone series, which have been priced aggressively. Unlike Motorola, Xiaomi will import its devices in the country and will use Flipkart as the medium to distribute the products in the country.
Xiaomi has sent out invites to the tech press media for attending an event tomorrow in New Delhi where it will be confirming the Flipkart deal and will launch more products in the country, which include Redmi 1S and Redmi Note. Xiaomi will also reveal details regarding the service centers and more, which are still a mystery.
In case you aren't of, Xiaomi Mi3 comes with a 5.0-inch Full HD IPS display, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AB) processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM, MIUI V5 based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, 13MP rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front facing camera, 16GB fixed internal storage and 3,050 mAh battery.
