Launch Offers

Redmi Launch offer includes an instant cashback of INR 2,200 from Reliance Jio with 100GB of mobile data. Apart from this there is a 5% discount on Amazon India and Xiaomi’s official India website using SBI CC’s.

Overall Verdict

To be honest, this phone is very well suitable for those who wish to flaunt handsets (within a budget category) with all the latest smartphone trends aka 18:9 screen, power-packed battery capacity and a better camera when compared to the last year’s version. When it comes to competition Xiaomi should not be worried since it faces competition from Xiaomi’s own devices. Buyers are also even eligible for a free ultra-slim case for the smartphone.
