Xiaomi India head Manu Jain said that the phone will come to India, but said that the company doesn’t have facilities to make the device in India so the company will import the device hence the pricing will be more.
However, making such a device requires state of the art facilities, which are not available in India.
We will have to import 100% of units if we launch the #Mi10 in India. Hence, it will have a different pricing model than usual.
