Remember the Ericsson case Xiaomi got itself embroiled in last year? The result was no MediaTek SoCs from Xiaomi in India.
By Hardik Singh14 - Aug - 2015
The Redmi Note 2 and the Redmi Note Prime, which were launched yesterday alongside the MIUI 7 in China, may not come to India, at least with their current SoC. This is due to the fact that the phone is powered by a Mediatek Helio X10 SoC and Xiaomi is currently not allowed to sell phones powered by a Mediatek chipset in the country. This ban was put in place by the the Delhi High Court on the Chinese in December of last year.
To recall, last year Ericsson filed a patent infringement charge on Xiaomi claiming that the chipset used and infringed upon eight of its Standard Essential Patents. After this ruling, Xiaomi was banned in India. But after a week, the ban was partially lifted by the court. In a second hearing, the Chinese phone manufacturer was granted a reprieve by allowing it to sell phones powered by Qualcomm SoCs. Since, then Xiaomi has been selling only Qualcomm powered phones in India.
It is now speculated that if and when Redmi Note 2 gets launched in India, it might have to make do with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC. This octa-core SoC is quite capable, but comes nowhere near the Helio X10 in terms of performance. The Helio X10 is a flagship class SoC that currently powers the HTC One M9 Plus. Moreover, The Snapdragon 615 is already being used by Xiaomi's Mi 4i and the much affordable, Yu Yureka Plus. And, if Redmi Note or Prime is launched with the chipset, it might end up seeming like a stale attemp
It has micro sd card slot, confirmed, I watched the review video on youtube, it has a removable back, removable battery, slot for dual micro sim card and a micro sd card
I don't understand ... If xiaomi is only allowed to sell phones with snapdragon SoC then how is it selling mi pad in india??? Can someone answer me.. I am very confused
4 out of 5 Xiaomi Redmi Note phones, that I've come across, had a ridiculously low quality displays - yellow spots at the border and hundreds of dead pixels allover the screen just within 6 months of usage. So no wonder the price is that low...
