Although we are not sure if Xiaomi will bring both the variants to India, however chances are that the company might just bring only the 64GB variant, and skip the high-end 128GB. The reason behind not bringing the 128GB could be that the 128GB model may push the price of the phone above Rs 20,000.advertisementThe company will officially confirm the India price at the launch today.

It is almost after almost a year that the Chinese smartphone maker is bringing a high-end device to India. Logically , the company should have brought the the company’s latest flagship phone — Mi 6, but no, Xiaomi may not bring the Mi 6 to India at all. This was earlier confirmed by India Today Tech. There are several reasons for not bringing the Mi 6 to India, but one of them is because Mi 5 didn’t do that well and didn’t possible meet the company’s expectations.
