i am confuse why supreme court (ericsson) allowed other compnies to sale mtk cpu phone in india like lenovo & banned for xiaomi
i think no mediatek processors can satisfy for long period..it just for max 6mnths usage.
I think that the chinese version has a sd card slot and the international version might not have a sd card slot.

Dias Ronn, 15 Aug 2015Every brands are using MediaTek in India, then why this problem with xiaomi? Lenovo k3 note a... moreXiaomi might not be able to bring the exact Redmi Note 2 to India
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
