Xiaomi has already teased that it will launch its next smartphone in India next week on January 19, which is expected to be the Redmi Note 4. Now, Flipkart has all but confirmed that the upcoming smartphone will be exclusive to its e-commerce site.
Flipkart has posted a short video on Twitter, which was in response to a tweet by Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. In what is clearly an ad campaign, Flipkart is teasing the launch of a new all-rounder on January 19, along with Xiaomi India. Though both companies stop short of naming the device, the smartphone in question is clearly the Redmi Note 4.
