Xiaomi to launch Mi5 and Redmi Note 3 in India but they wont launch Mi Tv in India this year says manu kumar Jain .“With the new products coming up for Xiaomi, a lot of hard-work has gone in, both from the China teams and India teams. We are working very hard to ensure that the time gap between the two launches is reduced. Of course, some gap is to be expected between given that to launch a new device in India, we need to get certifications, clearances, etc,” said Jain.
In China, Xiaomi is also known for other products as well, such as the Mi Tv, Air Purifier etc. However Jain said that the wait for these is likely to continue for Indian consumers.“We bought the Mi Band to India last year, and yes it was immensely popular. Some even said that it was the number one fitness tracker in India. However, for 2016, the primary focus in India will be around phones. there’s a good chance that the TV may not launch here this year,” said Jain. He explained that the company first wants to build up its smartphone business and ecosystem in India, and then move on to expanding its portfolio,
“In Q3 we shipped a million phones. In Q4, we shipped more than a million smartphones, I would say somewhere between 1 and 1.5 million devices in India,” said Jain adding that the company was now shipping to over 1500 cities in the country
