Xiaomi India's teaser poster related to Mi 4 price-cut

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.
