Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Y2 and Mi A2 prices slashed, but don’t fall for these two ‘deals’

To celebrate Xiaomi’s lead in the Indian smartphone market for the fifth consecutive quarter, the company’s India MD and Global VP, Manu Kumar Jain has announced a price cut on three Xiaomi smartphones in India.

Starting today, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Xiaomi Redmi Y2 and Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One will be available at a discount of Rs 1,000.

But the, another reason for reducing the cost of these smartphones is because their component costs have gone down. The company said in a statement, “We are delighted to share that we have seen a reduction in component costs of some of our best-selling phones. Following the above philosophy, we are happy to announce price drops of these popular devices, where we have seen a reduction in component costs.”

However, not all deals are what they look like. Although the company has said that it is offering a discount of Rs 1,000, we noticed that the prices of some of the smartphones have not been reduced as the company claims.

With this price cut, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro’s 4GB RAM/64GB storage model will be available for Rs 13,999 and the 6GB RAM/64GB storage variant can be picked up for Rs 15,999. It is strange that even after a discount of Rs 1,000, the base model of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is available for Rs 13,999 as it was launched at the same price too.

Speaking of Mi A2, its 4GB RAM/64GB storage model and 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant have received a price cut. You can buy the base model for Rs 15,999 and the high-end model at Rs 18,999. However, if we recall, the 6GB RAM/128GB storage model, which got launched in India in October this year, was priced at Rs 17,999. So although the company claims that it is available at a discounted price of Rs 18,999, they are actually charging you higher than the launch price.

The 4GB RAM/64GB storage model of Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is also available at a discounted price of Rs 11,999. This model of the selfie-focussed smartphone was originally launched at Rs 12,999.

It is worth noticing, that the company has announced a reduction in these prices just days after it increased the prices of its five devices including Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 smartphones, 10000mAh Power Bank 2i, Mi TV 4C Pro 32-inch and Mi TV 4A Pro 49-inch.
