Xiaomi India’s chief, Manu Jain, has revealed that the company would be launching the Mi 4 in India on January 28th.
The news comes via an interview with The Indian Express.
Earlier last week, we reported that the Economic Times had revealed that the phone could be launched on January 28th, for around Rs 23,000. Even though the launch date is correct, it is possible that the phone may come with a cheaper price tag. According to the interview, Jain has said that the Mi 4 will be launched for around Rs. 20,000.

Xiaomi has carved itself a niche in India with the Mi 3, Redmi 1S and the Redmi Note. And if the Mi4 is indeed priced for such a low price, it could capture the market away from the likes of the high enders. And you never know, Xiaomi could surprise us further, and sell the device at an even lower price, like they did with the Redmi Note.
