Xiaomi's flagship Mi 5 smartphone is now available via more online retail platforms apart from the company's own online store in India, Mi.com. The Chinese company on Thursday announced the news in a tweet and named the partners.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is now available via Amazon India, Flipkart, Snapdeal, and Tata Cliq online stores. Back in March, the Mi 5 smartphone was available via flash sale model on just the Mi.com. The Mi 5 notably went on open sale last week.
Notably, Xiaomi has so far only brought a single variant of the smartphone in India featuring 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage.
