Amid coronavirus outbreak, launch events are either canceled or rescheduled, but a large sum of events are going ahead as scheduled with an online-only event. After launching the Redmi Note 9 series in an online-exclusive event, Xiaomi is back with another event in India to unveil an important device in the country.
After a series of leaks, rumors, and teasers, Xiaomi's Mi 10 5G launch date in India has been confirmed. The company's official India handle announced on Thursday that it will launch the Mi 10 5G smartphone on March 31 at 12:30 p.m. Xiaomi also sent out media invites for a live stream that will take place through the company's social media platforms and Mi.com.
Mi 10 5G: Expected price
Xiaomi launched the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in China last month, but the latter isn't expected to arrive in India. The Mi 10 is priced at 3,999 Yuan (around Rs 42,400) in China, which is safe to say the smartphone's price in India will be on the same lines. To everyone's surprise, Xiaomi's VP and India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain revealed earlier this week that there would be a different pricing model, citing reasons of direct import, higher GST and depreciating rupee.
