Xiaomi Launches the Mi 5 in India for Rs. 24999

Browse This Page

At an event held in New Delhi, Xiaomi has finally launched the Mi 5 in India for a price of Rs 24990 for the base variant.

The phone will feature the Snapdragon 820 processor with 3 GB or RAM and 32 GB storage. With a 16 MP main camera and a 4 MP, 2-micron pixel size, front camera, the Mi 5 will go on sale on the 6th of April.

The price of the phone is more than people expected, as the base variant was supposed to be around 22000, as the Chinese price of the smartphone is around Rs. 20000.

Xiaomi is not launching the 64 GB variant, or even the Mi 5 Pro in India today with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Which is a huge disappointment for Xiaomi and Mi 5 fans. Another let down is the launch only in the white color, with the gold and silver colors not in sight.

Has Xiaomi rushed the launch of the Mi 5 to an extent where they are just trying to fulfil a promise to people, with a price and fewer options than ever before?  Either way, the phones are expected to run out of stock early, unless you can score an F-Code.

    Exactly, SD820 is good to have, but partially there’s no use of such high end proccy for most users

  • Nikhil Puri

    it was expected that they won’t luanch 64gb and 128 gb version.

  • Vivaan Raghuvanshi

    Thabraiz UL Aalam bro don’t take nunbers on count ever.

  • Tarun Gavara

    Thabraiz UL Aalam Yep. They’re not same. And tell me how will most people use the extra processing power of the SD 820. There’s no “practical” difference. I expect Mi India to launch a low-end processor version named the Mi 5i probably, with important features in India like the camera, and a below 16k price.

  • Thabraiz UL Aalam

    9rs discount ????

  • Thabraiz UL Aalam

    Sd820 and sd650 almost same!!really???

  • SureshChande

    They have disappointed mi lovers… They always launch those products in india which fails in China…

  • Saurav Tiru

    yup :) if u can compromise the camera quality (not much of an issue) u can buy Note 3 which is exactly the same thing for half the price :3

  • Krish Siddharth

    Waste. I Simply skipped the Note 3 and waited for the 64GB Mi5. Now that is not available and a massive 13K more than Note 3 32GB?? Forget Camera and SD 820, we just want a Phone that doesn’t lag and also with a MicroSD – Redmi 3 will do that – or even Samsung Galaxy J7 2016.

  • Jianghao Xu

    Then buy Samsung s7 for 60k.
