Xiaomi today launched the Mi Note 2 and the Mi MIX smartphones in China. While both phones showcase the future of Mi smartphones, the Mi MIX more so than anything else, they have one thing in common, neither of these phones will be launched in India.
According to reports coming in from China, Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra confirmed that there are no plans to bring the Mi Note 2 and Mi MIX to India. FoneArena too had the same conversation with him.
Even the previous-gen Mi Note and Mi Note Pro with Snapdragon processors never made their way to India nor did the higher-end variant of the Xiaomi Mi 5. Although the company is bringing some of its Mi Home products to the country. Recently they launched the Mi Air Purifier 2 and plan to launch more devices by the end of the year.
I am quite disappointed that the Mi MIX is not coming to India, it would have been an excellent showcase of Xiaomi's engineering efforts and it's just plain cool. The Mi Note 2 would have also added some competition to the premium segment which is currently being ruled by Samsung and Apple.
