Will Xiaomi Mi 5X come to India?

Yes, Xiaomi, in all certainty will roll-out the Mi 5X in India, but a couple of months later, as the company recently released Mi Max 2, which also falls in the same mid-range category. Moreover, the Redmi Note 4 is also selling well in India.

So, Xiaomi, in a bid to avoid cannibalism between its own products, will try to wait for some time before releasing the Mi 5X in India.
