Now India being the second biggest market for Xiaomi the speculations on Mi6 India launch date and pricing has already begun. And we have something to add to that. The rumor on the street is Xiaomi is already gearing up for a May launch date and in the talks with India’s two leading eRetailers Flipkart and Amazon for availability, pricing, launch offers and buyback terms. It is being said that Xiomi is bringing 3 launch colors to India. Black, White and Blue as shown at launch in China. And the pricing for the 64GB model is said to be 26999₹ excatly. Though it is also being said that Xiaomi India is hard at work to cut the entry-level pricing to as low as 25999₹. But sadly there is no word on the availability or pricing of the 128GB model or any of the special editions like the silver edition or the ceramic edition. We are sure none of the special editions will be available at launch. But we can expect one of those special editions to drop in the Indian market by the time of festivals. But personally we would love to see both the 64Gb & 128GB variants to available at launch.
