The Indian arm of the popular smartphone maker, Xiaomi, is reportedly planning to slash the price of Redmi Note 4G on Tuesday.
Xiaomi India teased fans on Facebook on 29 June that the company will announce "jaw dropping note-worthy" details on 30 June. It has asked fans to write their guesses in the comments section below regarding what the company may be announcing on Tuesday, further urging users to share and tag their friends on the post. One lucky participant will stand a chance to win a free Mi series product on 30 June.
"It's Note-worthy to stay tuned tomorrow for a jaw-dropping catch ;-). Make a guess what it might be in the comments below, and tag a few friends to join in the fun too! One lucky person will walk away with a Mi product tomorrow. Contest ends 30th June 10am," the post read.
Most of contestants are predicting that Xiaomi may release Flagship Mi Note series phablet, which was unveiled in China in January this year. But, we believe the company is likely to reduce the price of Redmi Note 4G as Xiaomi is slated to announce the second generation Redmi Note soon.
Early this month, Xiaomi had used a graphic picture on Facebook (HERE), showing pants down, to announce a price-drop on Mi4 the next day.
Similarly, the company has used tricky phrases such as "note-worthy" and "jaw dropping catch" in its latest post and also considering the graphic poster, featuring a "cricket ball catch", symbolically does not give any inkling to a new device launch. If the company really wanted to tease a new handset, it would have given a glimpse of the device with shadowy background, instead it indicates a promotional price-cut offer on a device. In this case, Redmi Note 4G.
