Xiaomi Mi A1, the first Android One smartphone by the Chinese company, has received a permanent price drop of Rs. 1,000 in India and is now available at a price tag of Rs. 13,999. The smartphone was launched in the country back in September at a price of Rs. 14,999. The announcement about the price cut was made by Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain on Sunday via his Twitter account. “Great news Mi Fans: announcing a permanent price drop of Rs. 1,000 on Mi A1” Jain tweeted.
The new Xiaomi Mi A1 price is applicable on purchases via Mi.com and Flipkart. At the time of filing this story, Flipkart has listed the Mi A1 in Gold and Black colour options, while its Rose Gold colour variant is not available. The smartphone is presently not in stock on mi.com.
The price drop makes the competition tougher for models such as Moto G5S Plus, Nokia 6, and the most recently launched Honor 7X that all sit against Xiaomi’s Android One smartphone.
