Xiaomi has slashed the price of its Redmi Note 4G by 20% after Lenovo launched the K3 Note at a price of Rs. 9,999. This makes the phone Rs. 2,000 cheaper than its launch price. Hence, it will now be available at a price of Rs. 7,999 instead of its launch price tag of Rs. 9,999.
Xiaomi says they could slash the price down only because of its lower costs. But, it seems like the story was different. Since this cut down was announced after Lenovo launched its K3 Note at Rs. 9,999, the reason for the price cut seems to be so that the Redmi Note 4G can stand in the competitive market of other affordable 4G LTE smartphones available in India.
Xiaomi has always been slashing its smartphone prices. It slashed the price of: Mi 4 16 GB by Rs. 5000, which was earlier selling at Rs. 19,999; and Mi 4 64 GB by Rs. 4000, which was earlier selling at Rs. 23,999. The Mi 4 phones have always been highly priced, due to which Xiaomi has always had to slash down the prices to stay in the market.
