Xiaomi, a Chinese manufacturer, will start selling their first device in India shortly. The Mi3 will be sold at Rs. 14999 starting from 15 of July.
Now check out why this is a superbly priced phone – the specs speak:

With all these features and the good looks of the Mi3, it’s surprising that Xiaomi has decided to price the phone at 15k. This is going to blow the competition away.
If you are app fanatic, and download a lot of apps, the 16GB variant may not be what you need. You may have to wait for the 32 and 64GB variants to hit the market. Yes, there are rumors that they will be coming too in the coming months.
As of now, you’ll just have to wait till the 15th of July to place your order. There were talks earlier that Xiaomi may be tying up with Flipkart for selling these devices, but there’s no official word yet. We’ll keep you updated if we do get some news.
