Xiaomi is finally gearing up to launch the much-awaited flagship Xiaomi Mi 10 smartphone in India. After dozens of teasers via its social media channels, the company has made it official. Xiaomi launched the flagship smartphone back in February and they are finally bringing it to the Indian shores on March 31 via an online launch event. In China, the Mi 10 was launched alongside the Mi 10 Pro and both phones carried flagship-grade specifications. However, the Pro variant might not make its way to India.
Even fans can tune in for the upcoming launch event via an online live stream on multiple social media channels and Xiaomi's YouTube channel. The launch event is scheduled to begin at 12:30 PM on March 31.
While Xiaomi is already tweeting about the upcoming smartphone, there is another tweet from a different handle that raises a lot of eyebrows. Amazon India has posted a tweet asking Xiaomi about what's in the kitchen teasing that the smartphone might be available exclusively via Amazon when it arrives in India.
In China, the flagship smartphone is available at a starting price of CNY 3,999, which roughly converts to Rs. 42,500. However, when it arrives in India, it might cost a little more considering the GST on mobile phones has been increased from 12% to 18% now.
