New Delhi: Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi which has finally opened its online portal Mi Store in India. The company has started selling accessories via its own official site, apart from its exclusive online partner in the country - Flipkart.
Xiaomi Vice President Hugo Barra and head of India Manu Jain have said that the company will open 100 experience Zones in India.
The Mi India site is currently selling accessories such as Mi In-Ear headphone priced at Rs. 799; Mi In-Ear headphones Basic at Rs. 500; Redmi Soft Gel Protective Case at Rs. 369, and Redmi Note Flip Case at Rs. 559. In order to place an order, users will have to sign in via their Mi account ID or create one (using mobile number or email address). The Xiaomi Mi In-the-Ear headset went on sale initially via Flipkart in September priced at Rs. 999.
Notably, the Chinese company is also selling Mi Power Bank of 5200mAh and 10400mAh capacities. The move to start selling accessories via its own official site seems to indicate that the company might soon move away from Flipkart, which currently sells all of Xiaomi devices.
Xiaomi has sold over a million smartphones in India since it arrived in the country last July. However, products like Yi action camera and Mi Band fitness tracker are yet to hit the market, along with new smartphones Mi Note and Mi Note Pro.
