Xiaomi officially dropped the price of Mi 4 64GB for the second time a few days ago. However, the Mi 4 16GB price remained the same at Rs 17,999. Now, the company has announced a second price cut on it as well, and will cost only Rs 14,999 now.
The Xiaomi Mi 4 16GB was launched at Rs 19,999 which caused a huge uproar among the fans and consumers. It was mainly due to the limited storage and great value-for-money pricing on the Mi 3. Thus the pricing backfired initially. Now after two price cuts, the Mi 4 16GB is available at just Rs 14,999. To be honest, it is a great price and Xiaomi has nailed it this time. This comes on the backdrop of selling over 10 million (1 crore) Mi 4 smartphones worldwide.
As we have seen, Unboxed Mi 4 with 16GB storage will be available on Overcart.com shortly at Rs 14,599. Now, this becomes quite meaningless when you can buy the same but new at Rs 14,999. We hope Overcart reduces the price before the sale or else it will be a dud.
