Xiaomi has completed eight years in India and is hosting a sale event to celebrate it. Here are all the details.
In the midst of all the launches, Xiaomi has just completed its eighth anniversary. Xiaomi, which is currently one of the leading smartphone brands in the country, has been around since 2014 and has diverged into multiple product categories over the years. As part of its anniversary sale, the company is now hosting a sale on its website for the entire month of July. The sale details are yet to be shared but one can expect some good deals on popular Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones as well as other products.
Xiaomi started its journey in India back in 2014 with its first smartphone – the Redmi 1S, which was also accompanied by the Xiaomi Mi 3 – the company’s flagship phone in 2014. Over the years, Xiaomi stressed on its Redmi sub-brand to capture the affordable segment of the smartphone market, and eventually stepped into the premium smartphone space in 2020 with the dedicated Mi brand, which is now known simply as Xiaomi.
