Now everybody is waiting for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 successor - the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and the company was also expected to launch the device in January next year. The sale begins today on Xiaomi's official website, mi.com and will last until December 21. Xiaomi also expects to maintain this growth rate in 2018 too, with its offline expansion and product launches beyond smartphones, The Economic Times reports, citing managing director Manu Kumar Jain. The new Redmi 5 and 5 Plus smartphones are expected to hit the Indian market soon specially since the company brought the Special Edition Red colour variant of its Mi A smartphone - targeting it just for the holiday season - in India within a week of its global debut. Last year, Xiaomi had sales of $1 billion and shared the number one position in the Indian smartphone market with Samsung in the last quarter.

The company has also tied up with MobiKwik and Hungama for enticing discount offers - while a MobiKwik coupon gives you flat 30% cash back up to ₹4,000, the Hungama coupon gives you 3 months of Hungama Play and an entire year's access to Hungama Music. This has helped Xiaomi maintain its smartphone prices at the same levels even after the government increased the import duty to 15%.
