Xiaomi has completed five years of its successful Mi brand and is celebrating the occasion by offering great deals on its attractive smartphone range.
For starters, the Chinese tech giant is slashing price of its flagship smartphone and offering free accessories with purchase of every Redmi Note 4G. To make things spicier, Redmi 2 and Mi Pad will hit open sale without registrations. All offers will be entertained only on 8 April, the day Mi turns five as announced by the company's CEO and founder Lei Jun.
The celebrations do not end there. Xiaomi has partnered with two other online retailers to conduct sales of its Mi phones. This ends the exclusivity with Flipkart and Xiaomi products will now be available on Amazon and Snapdeal. The company's aim is make Xiaomi products easily available, without making buyers go through stringent flash sales.
"We are glad to give Mi fans more options to purchase Mi products. We are truly excited to be working with a variety of partners and expect these partnerships to be super successful," said Manu Jain, India Head for Xiaomi Operations.
It's raining offers
As a part of its Mi Fan Festival celebrations, Xiaomi is offering its flagship Mi 4 smartphone at a discounted price for just one day starting 8 April, 12 noon onwards.
Buyers will get flat ₹2,000 off on the purchase if completed before midnight tomorrow. After the discount, the 16GB Mi 4 smartphone will cost ₹17,999, down from its usual ₹19,999 price, while the 64GB variant will be available for ₹21,999.
Xiaomi is also offering Mi accessories with purchase of its budget phablet Redmi Note 4G. Buyers will get a free Mi Power Bank worth ₹599 while purchasing the handset via its offline stores, Airtel and The Mobile Store. If the purchase is made online via Flipkart or its new partners Amazon and Snapdeal, buyers will get a free Mi In-Ear Headphones, which sells for ₹500.
Finally, Xiaomi will host open sale for its ultra-affordable Redmi 2 and Mi Pad without registrations on Tuesday. The sale will no longer be exclusive on Flipkart, as Amazon and Snapdeal will also offer the Xiaomi products henceforth.
"Mi Fan Festival is a huge online party that we throw every year to bring Mi fans together all around the world for a day of non-stop celebration — it's our way of thanking our fans for their huge support," Hugo Barra, Vice President, Xiaomi Global, said in a statement.
"We're super thrilled to have Mi India joining the party this year and look forward to spending many more birthdays together!" he said.
