Announcing the same, he also stated the company’s record over the years since its foray into the Indian market in 2014. In Q3 2014, the company shipped more than 1,00,000 smartphones; In Q3 2015, it shipped more than one million smartphones; In Q3 2016, it shipped more than 3 million smartphones. That said, in Q3 2017, the company has shattered all the previous records.

Thanks to some stellar value for money products released by Xiaomi this year, it has registered this growth. As per Counterpoint research firm, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the Xiaomi Redmi 4, and the Xiaomi Redmi 4A are top three selling smartphones in Q3 2017. Even after 10 months since its release, the Redmi Note 4 is still the best budget smartphone you can get right now, and with Xiaomi rolling out MIUI 9 to the phone, the device will continue to sell like hotcakes till its successor comes out.

Besides this news, there’s another one to cheer about for Xiaomi fans. The company, earlier today announced a permanent price cut to the India’s best selling smartphone, the Redmi Note 4. Xiaomi has slashed the price of the Redmi Note 4 by Rs. 1,000. The Redmi Note 4 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant will be available for Rs. 11,999, down from the earlier Rs. 12,999, whereas the 3GB/32GB storage model, will be available at Rs. 9,999, down from the earlier Rs. 10,999 price tag.

Despite enjoying success in the country, Xiaomi is trying new things in the Indian market. For example, it has launched an all-new selfie-centric series in India, going against the likes of Oppo and Vivo. Earlier this month, the company announced two new smartphones- the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite. The Redmi Y1 is possibly the best selfie smartphone under Rs. 10,000. For the Redmi Y series, the company has endorsed new brand ambassador, Katrina Kaif, and that too for the first time since its entry to the market.

Well, the company might even try out new things going forward, but at the same time, it is promising to continue following its motto of offering premium smartphones at affordable rates. Xiaomi might unveil the Redmi Note 5 in India in January 2018, which could be the company’s next smartphone in the country.

Never buy there any flagship model as they dont give software upgrade. Bought Mi4i still on Lollipop, Redmi Note 3 there last year highest selling model no upgrade till date they take age to upgrade there software. I think Moto is best in terms of software support. Xiaomi will forget about Redmi Note 4 in 2018 they focus only on there current year model for software upgrade.

Better you get acquinted with Nexus 6P- so called google phone, manufactured by huawei. At launch they promise 2 year software update. but as per last relese. Many Services center rejected providing for service and even repair. Case is- After new update came, and installed. Phones goes to infinity restart mode. It happen like, once u install update, it will reboot and gives message on screen that “Updating XXth app out of YY” and count goes increasing, and It never returns to desktop. and even service ceter guys unable to download and give STABLE update. search on google for forum… Read more »

Atleast huwaei are providing software upgrade if you dont have knowledge then keep your mouth shut. if you r stucked in boot loop then you can download older version of that phone install it. rather running to service center, Company promise to provide 2 year software update not to provide service center support. I know 2014 hardware is not capable for 2018 software then how standalone developer port ROM from 1 phone to another. Redmi Note 3 have much hardware than Note 4.

Yes, it is absolutely true. They wont give Android updates and they forget flagship models. And, one more thing, extremely poor service at service centres. You better throw your phone to the dustbin rather than going to a Mi service centre. There is nothing like after sales service in case of Mi

Just root the device and go to xda forum and download all custom ROM for your device for the excellent hardware you have. Dont be numb. Use your little brain.
