Here is a brief summary of the conversation:

  • The Mi 6 is likely not launching in India as Xiaomi could allocate resources towards the release of one product, and they chose the Mi Mix 2 over the Mi 6.


  • The Mi Mix 2 is of course aimed towards buyers looking for an affordable flagship, but it also serves a secondary purpose of propagating Xiaomi beyond budget devices. The Mi Mix 2 also works towards a broader goal of marketing the brand as an OEM that can serve varied needs.


  • Xiaomi does realize that the Mi Mix 2 is priced beyond what Indian consumers have grown accustomed to with “Xiaomi” as a smartphone brand. This is one of the reasons why the company has provided an option for 0% EMI for the Mix 2.


  • The company does wish to inch towards more premium devices as an addition to its portfolio. The next point of focus for the company will likely be camera performance.


  • The Mi Mix 2 only gets a single storage variant in India because of supply constraints.Memory and displays for electronics have been facing supply crunches for a while, so Xiaomi chose to focus on one single variant for India. The combination of 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will be plentiful for practically all of Mi Mix 2’s users.


  • The White color variant of the Mi Mix 2 will also not be coming to India because of supply issues and its inherent difficulty in manufacturing.


  • MIUI 9 is coming soon. No specific timeframe was given for this during this talk, as the company is undertaking a few changes with how the Chinese MIUI version works as against the English MIUI. One example provided by Mr. Mani is how big notifications are handled. In China, apps like the super popular WeChat do not support big notifications at all, so consumers in China have different expectations as opposed to consumers in other parts of the world. More concrete details on this will be shared in the future.


  • Xiaomi does not intend to give up on MIUI at this stage, according to Mr. Mani. So while Android One devices like the Mi A1 do exist, they exist in harmony with MIUI devices and are not intended to be seen as an indication of being a complete replacement.

  • When asked whether Xiaomi would offer a software update promise or a timeframe for software support, Mr. Mani mentioned that Xiaomi does not have plans to make such promises (at the moment). Xiaomi’s track records for MIUI updates for its devices speaks for itself, with several older devices getting new MIUI versions officially in varied forms. Software updates depend on several factors, and these factors have high variability, so a blanket statement towards the future was impractical. So Xiaomi would instead prefer letting its work speak for itself, rather than make a promise on that end and backtracking on it.


  • When asked about the status of kernel sources for its devices (with a specific mention of the Mi A1 from our end), Mr. Mani commented that Xiaomi’s focus is on providing quality kernel sources and not just uploaded for the sake of it (we assume he meant complying with the GPL…), like several OEMs in the lower budget market tend to do (if  they release sources at all). The internal goal of the company is to release kernel sources within three months. Mr. Mani also commented that unlocking the bootloader of Xiaomi devices does not void warranty.


  • When inquired whether Xiaomi would take steps to make it easier for users to unlock their devices, Mr. Mani commented that the several of complications inserted were done so consciously, to tackle resellers loading adware-filled custom ROMs on Xiaomi devices before selling them. Such a practice ultimately harmed the brand image. The unlocking procedure as it currently stands has seen refinements from what it was launched as, and Xiaomi’s aim is to make it relatively easy for a normal consumer to unlock a device while still maintaining a certain level difficulty for bulk unlocking by resellers. It’s a fine line to balance for Xiaomi.
