“We are currently looking for warehousing and logistics partners in India, as well as deciding on a payment mechanisms like cash on delivery. It may take anywhere between three to nine months,” Xiaomi India Head Manu Jain said.

The Beijing-based company currently sells devices through its own online web portal in most of the countries except India and Indonesia.

“We have always stated that India is one of our most important markets. We have big plans for India this year… We are in process of signing the lease on a facility in Bangalore, which will be our R&D unit. This is the first one outside China,” Jain said.

Xiaomi will also expand its presence in the India market as it is one of the largest markets for its operations outside China. The company has launched Mi 3, Redmi 1S and Redmi Note in India.

All sales went out of stock in few seconds like the previous sales.
