The reason for the price cut is unknown, however, this could be due to a reduction in the cost of components which are generally observed with all companies, not just Xiaomi. Nevertheless, this is a praiseworthy step which reflects that the company is sticking to its belief of ‘honest pricing’.
Though, taking the fact into consideration, that about 5,000 Indian netizens have signed a petition on Change.org to reduce the price of the Redmi K20 by Rs 2,000. Xiaomi could pass on such benefits to its Indian audience.
To sum it up, the unforeseen price cut is sweet move from Xiaomi which will undoubtedly boost sales to a great extent.
