Till now, Xiaomi has launched four smartphones in India, the Mi 3 for Rs. 12,999, the Redmi 1S for Rs. 5,999, the Redmi Note 3G for Rs. 8,999, and the Redmi Note 4G for Rs. 9,999. All its smartphones have had the best specifications in their respective price ranges. No wonder, all of them have sold like hot cakes, but now Xiaomi has two new competitors in India, OnePlus and Yu (by Micromax). Both the brands offer extreme value for money devices and just like Xiaomi, both these brands follow a non-traditional sales model.
