Mi India has finally sent out invites for the launch event of Xiaomi Redmi Note smartphone. The launch event is scheduled for November 24th in Delhi, but it is likely to go on sale only in the first week of December, since the company would be selling the Redmi 1S smartphone on Tuesday, November 25th.
Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note smartphone in India back in July along with the Mi3 and the Redmi 1S. The Xiaomi Mi3 sales was temporarily discontinued in India in August to make way for the Redmi 1S smartphone, so the Redmi 1S could be temporarily discontinued after next week’s sale.
