Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime launched – Price Rs 8499

It has been a while since Xiaomi announced a mobile in India. Xiaomi has a huge fan base in India. Xiaomi launched the Redmi 3 and Mi Pad a few weeks earlier and it was announced only in China. The Mi Note and Mi Note pro were launched a while ago and there are no signs of their availability in India. The recently launched Redmi Note 2 also may not make it to India because of legal issues. While the Indian fan base is eagerly waiting for these devices to be available, Xiaomi today announced the Redmi Note Prime.
