Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has increased the price of its all time affordable smartphone Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, marking the depreciation of Indian Rupee against US Dollar and significant rise in cost of production for smartphones. The price of Mi Powerbank 2i and Mi TV (32" Pro & 49" Pro) has also been adjusted.
Manu Kumar Jain, Global Vice President at Xiaomi and Managing Director of Xiaomi India informed Mi fans on Twitter about the price adjustment:
Mi Fans! INR has depreciated against US$ by ~15% since the beginning of this year, resulting in significant rise in input costs.
