Xiaomi had a tradition of involving Mi Fans in device exploration before the launch of Redmi Note models in India, these explorers used to get devices before the official launch to participate in challenges designed by the company. For Redmi Note 3 company recruited 100 Mi Fans under the Mi generation program in 2016 and company shortlisted 50 hardcore Mi Fans as Explorers to test and explore Redmi Note 4 before its official launch back in 2017.
After the Redmi Note 4, Xiaomi probably decided to discontinue the explorer program as it didn’t make any such announcement in the past two years. Now, it seems that Xiaomi is all set to revive the Mi Explorer program with the Redmi K20 series, a post from Mi Community (India) admin says,
