Beijing-based Xiaomi entered into the Indian market with launching its Mi3, Redmi 1S and Redmi Note smartphones in July. Among the three smartphones, the Mi3 came up for sale at first and was outperforming in the market when it compares with other mid-range smartphones under Rs. 15,000 price bracket but it suddenly discontinued by the company.
