Mi 10 India launch date is March 31st, pre-order to start on the same day

“The Mi 10 flagship will be available for pre-orders in India on March 31st at 3:00pm, likely on Amazon.in and Mi.com”

Xiaomi has announced the Mi 10 will launch in India on March 31st via an online-only event that can be live-streamed starting at 12:30PM. The company also confirmed the Mi 10 pre-orders in India will kick off on the same day at 3:00PM, possibly on Amazon.in. The Mi 10 India launch date is notably a couple of days after the global launch event of the series on March 27th. According to tipster Mukul Sharma, Xiaomi will only launch the vanilla Mi 10 in India and not the Pro model. Additionally, a tweet by Xiaomi Global VP Manu Kumar Jain on Wednesday suggested the the Mi 10 price in India will be on the higher side due to reasons like direct import, the recently hiked GST rate and depreciating rupee. 

To recall, the Mi 10 price in China starts at RMB 3,999 (~Rs 41,000), while the Mi 10 Pro price starts at RMB 4,999 (~Rs 51,000). We speculate that the Mi 10 India price will be well above Rs 40,000 and could very well be the company’s most expensive phone in the country yet, which is possibly why the brand may not launch the Mi 10 Pro model.
