Excerpts from the article for proof
Corning doesn’t list Xiaomi as one of the many clients it supplies its products to. The search term “Xiaomi” on their website yields no results, but we believe there is more to it than what meets the eye. Corning’s website usually has a full page product list of which companies are using their products, but also has interesting cross promotional agreements with them -
The manufacturers and devices detailed on these webpages are the only manufacturers authorized to use the Corning Gorilla Glass trademark in their device promotions. Select device manufacturers have not been willing to provide Gorilla Glass model verification.
The list of products, which includes biggies like Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3, has a lot of suffixes mentioning the usage of Gorilla Glass 3. It also mentions that select device manufacturers are not willing to cross promote, but just use the glass for their devices. This could be the case for Xiaomi, which is probably not authorized to use the trademark, and also because it doesn’t use Gorilla glass exclusively for the Mi 3. Either way, what matters to us, consumers, is 1. The Indian Mi 3 will have Gorilla Glass 3, which is good news for all of you wondering about it all the time. 2. You might already have Gorilla Glass, but just don’t know it because the device manufacturer might not have agreed on the cross promotion.

AnonD-265587, 20 Aug 2014If the service center address are fake then it is just serious....Will flipcart/MI clarify ...... moreLike they say , they are providing Gorilla glass 3 by twitter not through official site or flipkart. May be in some handsets they are giving and in some handsets they are not or may be some low quality scratch resistant glass. Why you people are not trying a scratch yourself by a sharp instrument and get confirmed, If they are confident,then they should try. In corning site also there is no name of xiaomi, why? Some people are arguing,that there may be a licensing issue, but why? If purchased Corning gorilla glass then why they will not put your name on their site. May be i am wrong. But don't defend without any evidence, and don't say they twitted about it which is no legal point of view at deep. I would happy to accept, if wrong. I would like to be proved wrong because it's a good handset.

Rudrakanth, 20 Aug 2014Initially thought of buying this phone but IT HAS NO SUPPORT TO "DEVICE ENCRYPTION".... moreYes you cannot set up official email in mobile which needs full device encryption. Those who wants to access official email ( only those companies which demands full device encryption) cannot use.
